As one of the main electricity distributors in the province of Río Negro in northern Patagonia, Argentina, Empresa de Energía Río Negro S.A. (EdERSA) is dedicated to providing predictable, safe, socially responsible, and sustainable services. The company supplies more than 800,000 inhabitants in a concession area of 203,000 square kilometers. EdERSA aims to increase competitive advantage while valuing the excellence and continuous improvement of its people, but outdated business practices were holding the company back. To accompany its growth plan, improve compliance, and reduce cybersecurity risks, EdERSA decided to adopt a digital transformation road map.
“We seek to access new features that improve the productivity and efficiency of the company in general. Adopting RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a great achievement based on teamwork by EdERSA and experts from Process Technologies and SAP.”
Jorge Liendro, Chief Information Officer, EdERSA
Empresa de Energía Río Negro S.A. (EdERSA) aims to constantly update its SAP technology landscape with the latest innovations. To support this, the company embarked on an IT transformation with the private edition of RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud at its core. Process Technologies ran the project remotely, using the SAP Activate methodology to migrate from SAP ERP Central Component to the private edition of SAP S/4HANA Cloud. The areas covered included finance, controlling, treasury management, materials management, funds management, and HR. The SAP Readiness Check tool was important in accelerating the project, while SAP Business Technology Platform was used to integrate and extend the processes across lines of business. EdERSA plans to advance with SAP Ariba and SAP Concur solutions to simplify procurement and expense management, respectively. It’s also considering SAP SuccessFactors solutions to improve its human experience management and SAP Signavio solutions to keep processes live with continuous innovation.
