ADB SAFEGATE: digital transformation with SAP S/4HANA Cloud

ADB Safegate | TheValueChain

As a solution provider for airports, ADB SAFEGATE is a key player in the aviation industry. The company has gone through several changes in the past and was hoping to streamline its internal systems and company culture, a challenge TheValueChain was happy to take on with a number of SAP implementations.



ADB SAFEGATE builds smart solutions for airports, from landing to departure. Mergers and acquisitions increased the urgency to streamline company cultures, processes and technical systems. With offices all over the world, the company needed a solid, global and flexible IT system.



German Gründlichkeit was one reason why ADB SAFEGATE selected SAP, as quality and compliance with international standards are crucial. Some production sites already had SAP ECC 6.0. ADB SAFEGATE opted for both S/4HANA and C/4HANA Service & Sales to support global CRM processes and field services, integrated with the back end via SAP Cloud Platform and various other peripheral applications, such as SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Concur, SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Fiori for custom applications. TheValueChain assisted with the entire digital transformation project, from developing a global process template to harmonising the master data.

‘With S/4 HANA public cloud, we invested in one ERP for a global company,’ says Anne de Vleeschauwer, Director of IT Business Systems at ADB SAFEGATE. ‘This will support our business growth and integrate standard end-to-end processes in a compliant and future-proof design. We needed an experienced partner to guide us through the maze of SAP technologies and business practices. TheValueChain was the obvious choice.’



Thanks to the combination of SAP tools, ADB SAFEGATE realised a 360° end-to-end solution with standardized processes in all departments, from purchasing, R&D and production to transport, warehouse management, project follow-up, after-sales service and finance. Consolidated, clear and integrated reporting for all stakeholders was crucial. ADB SAFEGATE was one of the first to roll out a SAP S/4HANA Cloud project of this magnitude on a global scale for all lines of business. With SAP Cloud, the company is always up to date on the latest innovations and benefits from a lower total cost of ownership.
