CEN­VIRO Sdn Bhd, a whol­ly­owned unit of Khaz­anah Na­sional Bhd, is spend­ing RM20 mil­lion over 18 months on com­puter soft­ware pack­ages to raise busi­ness pro­duc­tiv­ity.

Cen­viro is in the busi­ness of waste man­age­ment. It owns and op­er­ates Malaysia’s first in­te­grated waste man­age­ment cen­tre in Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan.

It will be de­ploy­ing mul­ti­ple SAP so­lu­tions, in­clud­ing SAP Suite on HANA with IS-U Waste Man­age­ment, as part of its dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion. The de­ploy­ment will lever­age on the ser­vices of Deloitte Con­sult­ing SEA with iTel­li­gence Out­sourc­ing MSC as the host­ing part­ner.

With 20 non-in­te­grated and dis­trib­uted sys­tems op­er­at­ing across mul­ti­ple in­dus­tries, Cen­viro sees the need to au­to­mate and con­sol­i­date its sys­tems to sup­port op­er­a­tions across the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“The man­age­ment saw that it was im­per­a­tive to re­solve this chal­lenge by in­te­grat­ing and cen­tral­is­ing our sys­tems be­fore we em­bark on fur­ther and planned ex­pan­sion in our busi­ness and fa­cil­i­ties,” said man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Khalid Bah­soon af­ter a sign­ing cer­e­mony with SAP Malaysia, here, yes­ter­day.

Upon eval­u­at­ing sev­eral op­tions, Cen­viro de­cided to work with SAP and its part­ners, Deloitte Con­sult­ing and iTel­li­gence Out­sourc­ing MSC, to de­ploy a fully-in­te­grated en­ter­prise re­source plan­ning sys­tem.

With SAP so­lu­tions, Cen­viro can now run its busi­ness more ef­fi­ciently and in “real time”.

The soft­ware is able to op­ti­mise com­merce, ser­vice, lo­gis­tics, billing and cus­tomer en­gage­ment ac­tiv­i­ties.

“SAP has long been a front run­ner in help­ing com­pa­nies sim­plify their op­er­a­tions and our mis­sion is to lead the global trans­for­ma­tion in the new dig­i­tal econ­omy by em­pow­er­ing com­pa­nies to reimag­ine their busi­ness us­ing the SAP dig­i­tal busi­ness frame­work,” said SAP Malaysia Sdn Bhd man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Terence Yong.

“SAP S/4HANA is the dig­i­tal core that in­te­grates tech­nolo­gies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, real-time an­a­lyt­ics, mo­bile, busi­ness net­works, third­party sys­tems, and more,” he added.

“With this de­ploy­ment, we ex­pect to move our op­er­a­tions on to a whole new level by us­ing sim­ple tools to per­form com­plex pro­cesses,” said Khalid.
