Vigo, 9 October 2017.- The Group New Pescanova has relied on SAP for starting up LEGONOVA, a digital transformation project whose main target is to develop a platform on which the seafood multinational company will be able to back its new management system, linking current business knowledge with modern technologies of data processing.
SAP S/4HANA will be the platform on which the project will be developed, which will support the integral transformation of the core processes for the management of the company, such as financial, purchasing, sales, production and logistics processes. The implementation of the technological project is one of the key investments of the company’s 2020 Strategic Plan and will extend the core business applications to the rest of companies and divisions of the Group, thus generating a unification of optimum processes and information to achieve the best results.

The project will integrate business processes from start to finish. It will also contribute to optimize the commercial management and promotions. It also seeks to encourgae the future digital transformation of the different innovation areas through a better knowledge of the client and the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities.
It is expected that the first phase for the implementation of the project will be concluded in July 2018, with the commissioning of the system in the headquarters and in some subsidiaries, to continue with the rest of our subsidiaries.
