Long regarded as a pioneer of efficiency and productivity, Toyota Motor Corporation has selected SAP S/4HANA and the SAP HANA platform to help improve operational and financial performance across the group.
The Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer will use the platforms to help regulate the group’s accounting system in line with global standards, by creating a centralised information sharing system to help the company respond rapidly to business and market changes.
“As a global leader in automotive manufacturing, we turned to SAP to help us build the infrastructure of Toyota’s new company-wide accounting information system. We are excited to reap the benefits of faster response times to growth strategy decisions and latent and future risks in our business,” said Hiroaki Kitazawa, Toyota executive general manager and field general manager of the Information Systems Group.
By operating both transactional and analytical data processing in real time on a single platform, Toyota Group will be able to perform core functions such as high-speed bill of materials (BoM) explosion, and develop new applications.
“We are confident that with the integrated use of both SAP S/4HANA and SAP HANA, Toyota Group will see improvements in the range, volume and speed of information management,” said Yuzuru Fukuda, president and representative director, SAP Japan.
