Transmeri is a Finnish family business, with long traditions in cosmetics and consumer goods imports, marketing and production. The turnover of the group was 187,1 million euro in 2016 and it employs a total of 534 people. The group consists of importer and marketer Oy Transmeri Ab, contract producer Transmeri Logistics, and subsidiaries Banmark, Sultrade and Miraculous.
In 2016, Transmeri had sudden, temporary needs for SAP-professionals. These needs occured due to typical changes: employee parental leave and personnel transitions. BPS’s two SAP-professionals worked as full-time team members at Transmeri for several months: in IT support and in the customer service team. They also started with short notice, just two weeks after the first contact.
Strong SAP-knowledge was a crucial requirement for Transmeri. Their SAP solution covers a wide range of areas from warehouse management to financial accounting and therefore, it is not easy to find competent professionals with short notice. BPS was a natural choice as a partner with its strong SAP-experience. Transmeri was also able to rely on the competence of BPS professionals.
The most important advantages Transmeri achieved, were the business processes continuity, the certainty of a competent team member and the opportunity to focus their resources to find a permanent solution. The time savings from employee training were remarkable as well, since BPS professionals could start the work immediately. Moreover, BPS’s professionals brought up new development ideas and ways of using the current system, while working as full-time team members.
BPS’s strengths are having a deep knowledge of SAP processes and functionalities, flexibility, professionality and open, active communication, according to Transmeri. For example, the agreed time period was extended effortlessly. The communication with BPS has been seamless and the discussions about technical subjects have been practical with business people. Transmeri would be very likely to use BPS’s Insourcing services again in similar situations.
”We got BPS’s competent SAP-professional to strengthen our team in a sudden situation of resource loss, in less than two weeks from our first contact” Saila Pitkäjärvi, Customer Service Manager, Transmeri Logistics
