As the result of smooth cooperation with Bilot, Wihuri won first place in the SAP Quality Awards, Nordic and Baltic countries Innovation Project category.

Vilakone Oy is part of Wihuri Oy Technical Trade and as recently as in 2016, used a custom-made ERP system that no longer served the company’s business needs. As Wihuri Group already utilised SAP systems in several of its divisions, the decision was made to supply Vilakone with a next-generation SAP S/4HANA enterprise resource planning system as part of the Group’s broader digital roadmap.
