Helping HIT Group Harness the Power of Business Intelligence - Stefanini

Helping HIT Group Harness The Power Of Business Intelligence

When HIT Group – a Portuguese business responsible for transforming more than 400,000 tonnes of tomato into concentrate for sauces and ketchups – was looking to digitally transform its organization, it knew Stefanini could deliver. That’s because HIT Group’s Head of IT, Nuno Dinis, had partnered with Stefanini on multiple projects over the last 15 years, while working at a variety of organizations.

Having joined HIT Group in 2020, Dinis was searching for a trusted partner that could support a roadmap to digitalization and contacted Stefanini to discuss the challenges the business faced.

The first of these was ensuring finance and senior management teams could efficiently access company results from anywhere. HIT Group also wanted to gain a clearer vision of transactional data, while automating reporting and creating a simpler approach to data analysis, which would help the company make data-informed decisions.

Stefanini developed a proposal that would involve addressing all of these challenges through a Power BI dashboard. Once given the go ahead, the project was delivered in line with an agreed schedule, having been managed completely remotely by Stefanini’s team in Romania.

Positive Feedback for Power BI

At the implementation stage, Stefanini connected to the client’s SAP Hana database and developed three dashboards, displaying costs, revenue and forecasted costs.

Despite the new tool having only recently been adopted, key employees have already provided positive feedback and noted how it has enhanced their experience when accessing company results, while speeding up the process of analyzing data and generating reports.

Meanwhile, the forecasting dashboard has enabled HIT Group to closely monitor and control the potential impact of variations in transport and operational costs. This initial success has also laid the groundwork for expanding Stefanini’s support for HIT Group’s use of Power BI.

“Because I had already experienced the huge value that Stefanini is able to deliver, I always expected that our initial project would be just the start of our partnership. We are already assessing other areas of our business where we can harness Power BI to enhance our way of working, which we will look to implement with Stefanini’s support.”

Extending to Traceability

The initial success of the collaboration has also prompted HIT Group to award another project to Stefanini, involving creating a strategic solution to improve traceability.

Ensuring HIT Group gains visibility and a clear record of all its produce, the project is only in its initial stages but has already impressed senior leaders at the company.

“The level of experienced resource that Stefanini has assigned to our traceability project has already been widely noted and appreciated across our business. We have every confidence this will build on the existing success of our partnership – and lay the groundwork for additional initiatives that will support our digital transformation in the future,” concludes Dinis.
