A Healthier Company with SAP Business One

Since its foundation, in 1971, Groupe AFFI Logistique, a non-governmental organization located in Boucherville, has become a reference in its field of activity, the third-party logistic (3PL). The company offers services such as order picking, assembly, packaging, distribution, warehousing and inspection.
Because of its social mission, the business received the special recognition of “healthy enterprise”. To be assured to fulfill its mission, Groupe AFFI Logistique needed to change its way of monitoring its projected growth.

An effective financial platform to save time

When the time came to reconsider its working methods from another point of view, Groupe AFFI Logistique had the objective to manage better its 450 employees, 80% of which live with physical or mental disabilities. After seeking for the solution that would best suited its needs, the enterprise turned to Forgestik, a professional services firm specialized in the implementation of SAP Business One software.

“As we have a social mission, our employees have disabilities. Therefore, we need more time to manage them better, explained Claude Bolduc, information technology manager. Tools like SAP Business One allow us to take the time to do what we do best and what we need to do to support our employees, but also to serve better our clients.”

SAP: a robust and reliable solution

Forgestik’s expertise used in the implementation of a SAP Business One solution gave the chance to Groupe AFFI Logistique to breathe again. Since the installation of the platform in 2008, the organization has increased its ability to process the orders: it went from 20 to 1000 orders a day, with peaks of 4000 orders a day.

Furthermore, because of the robustness and the reliability of the software, the organization can now produce strong and transparent reports faster. Groupe AFFI Logistique feels confident knowing that its new tool offers the peace of mind it needed, thanks to the production of trustworthy and consistent data. Meanwhile, the organization is sure all the information remains safe.

“SAP Business One is a tool that brings simplicity and effectiveness in our company, said Claude Bolduc. The installation has caused the automation and simplification of tasks that were taking too much time when they were done manually.”
