Hong Kong-based manufacturer Tontec International has accelerated its industry 4.0 transformation by adopting RISE with SAP, a business-transformation-as-a-service offering.
Tontec International produces plastic injection molds and moldings across 11 factory plants worldwide. It serves customers across various verticals from aerospace, automotive, industrial appliances and equipment, office appliances to medical devices industries.
As an integral part of its transformation, the company will update its current SAP S/4HANA, SAP's next generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, to SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud Edition. This transformation will enable Tontec to manage business processes, including financial reporting and disaster recovery; and respond to evolving business conditions with speed and agility.
Furthermore, Tontec will deploy SAP Integration Suite to interconnect its multiple operational and manufacturing systems to power and streamline innovation.
“We are forging ahead on our journey to Industry 4.0. RISE with SAP and SAP S/4HANA Cloud empower us to move even more quickly to create an optimised, highly digitalised system that unlocks innovation and efficiency around the world," said Nelson Lam, president, Tontec.
The company is embracing automation and deploying networking solutions to enable increased product customisation, higher quality and shorter delivery time.
In Asia, it has already connected the manufacturing execution and quality management systems in its seven manufacturing sites with SAP S/4HANA to facilitate production planning and cost reporting. RISE with SAP's bundled services will enable Tontec to expand its digital landscapes globally to create one integrated and harmonised platform and drive Tontec's development as a future-proof digital-first manufacturing enterprise.
"Innovative companies such as Tontec are at the forefront of digital transformation. They have the vision and drive to reimagine their operations and expand the scope and depth of business through cloud-based intelligent technologies,” said Rajni Sharma, managing director, SAP Hong Kong.
He added that RISE with SAP, powered by SAP S/4HANA at the core, is well-positioned to support the company, managing all key cloud solutions, services and infrastructure across all geographies under one roof.
“We look forward to supporting more enterprises to accelerate innovation, agility and responsiveness towards smart manufacturing,” said Sharman.
