A new subsidiary for LimaCorporate, a new Roll Out for Alfa Sistemi
Just before the whole world stopped because of the Covid-19 emergency, our team has completed a new and challenging internationalization project.
This time we were called by LimaCorporate, world-wide operating company, specialized in the production and sale of medical devices and orthopaedic prostheses, to extend their Oracle JDE E1 management system in the new Brazilian subsidiary.
LimaCorporate has always had a “global philosophy” that over the years has led to the opening of 25 foreign branches. In order to obtain a “corporate” vision of the entire group, it is necessary to rely on a single management system, able to provide a complete integration of the data collected and to facilitate the management, both logistically and financially, of information between one location and another.After completing multiple Oracle JDE E1 Roll Out projects worldwide for LimaCorporate over the years, the Alfa Sistemi team supported the customer directly in its Sao Paulo branch, to support them in the most important phases of the project, such as user training and onsite presence at go-live and in the following weeks.
The main challenge of this project lay in the complexity of the fiscal apparatus established by the Brazilian legal requirements, which the ERP system had to take into account in order to fully meet not only the logistical but also the administrative needs of the branch.
Although Oracle JDE E1 already has a civil-tax localization for Brazil, our consultants studied and analyzed in detail the specificities of Brazilian regulations in order to implement the solution that best met the needs and peculiarities of the Lima business.The project, started in October 2019 with the requirements analysis phase, ended in March 2020, just before the Italian lockdown, with the Go-Live. After a first phase of live support carried out directly at the customer’s Brazilian branch, our consultants have returned to Italy from where they continue their assistance activities, now completely managed remotely.
The objective of completing the project on schedule has been achieved thanks to the commitment of our consultants, who have faced the challenges of this project with professionalism and seriousness, and thanks to the team spirit that has been created with the Brazilian and Italian team of LimaCorporate. All this was only possible thanks to LimaCorporate which, in this case too, chose to entrust Alfa Sistemi with such a strategic project.
“Once again we had the confirmation of the professionalism of the Alfa Sistemi team to which we turned for this important and complex project. JDE’s Roll Out in Brazil was a priority for Lima to better support the subsidiary’s expansion in the South American market. The excellent governance of the project made it possible to overcome the difficulties imposed by the complex local taxation system that so many worries had created. A case of success without a doubt.” – Manuel Clama, Head of Corporate IT at LimaCorporate
