Challenges and Benefits


  • Louis Poulsen was operating on a 10-year-old SAP ECC platform that did not support new technology or the ability to improve on change processes
  • As SAP is used extensively across the organization, the migration had to disrupt everyday business as little as possible
  • Due to seasonal production peaks, only a very limited window was available for the migration


  • Conversion Factory migration to S/4HANA


  • The Conversion Factory approach enabled the migration to be completed successfully in the allocated 24 weeks and within budget
  • Migration was handled by an experienced, SAP-certified team of conversion specialists
  • By migrating to SAP S/4HANA, Louis Poulsen now has the foundation in place for utilizing new technology to support their future optimization, development, and growth
