Cuscapi chose Croesus IT Solutions Sdn. Bhd. as their implementation partner to streamline and enhance their daily business processes in gearing up for growth. Cuscapi’s requirements had simply outgrown their legacy system, and required SAP Business One to support their entire business management workflow.
Taking a step forward with SAP
A major step up for Cuscapi was the introduction of SAP Business One into its daily business operations in 2006.
SAP Business One automated critical operations including Sales, Finance, Purchasing, Inventory and other business transactions. It reduced data entry effort, and it improved day-to-day operations workflow, increasing productivity.
Richard Liau, Croesus Sales and Implementation Director said,”The Croesus team were able to compile Cuscapi’s unique business requirements, deadlines and objectives without any significant interruption to their daily business operations.”
Financial and Accounting reports that previously took days to compile, are now accessible within minutes. Having adapted SAP Business One, Cuscapi was able to improve their customer relationships , drilling down to the information required to react faster and respond better to their customers.
With SAP Business One brought by Croesus, we now have a platform that helps to handle our business workflow more efficiently – Chief Executive Officer, Cuscapi Berhad
The key success factor was collaboration with Croesus, their implementation partner as they brought the right solution from the beginning. Croesus’ knowledge and expertise on SAP Business One was key to gaining maximum value, and brought flexibility for customization and additional functionalities that were required.
Additional Add-on Modules were developed to supplement SAP Business One’s core functionalities, and was a perfect fit for Cuscapi’s requirement.
Making way for Business Growth
With a successful implementation of SAP Business One, Cuscapi has plans to use the platform to grow its business, as monitoring the trends and growth areas can be done on the system.
