SAP SE has announced that Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota Group) has selected SAP S/4HANA and the SAP HANA business data platform to help drive operational and financial efficiency across Toyota Group.
Toyota Group, the Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, chose SAP S/4HANA and SAP HANA to help regulate the group’s accounting system in line with global standards. With the implementation of these SAP solutions in its new accounting system, Toyota will have a centralized information sharing system to help the company respond promptly to business and market changes.
“As a global leader in automotive manufacturing, we turned to SAP to help us build the infrastructure of Toyota’s new company-wide accounting information system. We are excited to reap the benefits of faster response times to growth strategy decisions and latent and future risks in our business,” said Hiroaki Kitazawa, Toyota executive general manager and field general manager of the Information Systems Group.
An Integrated System to Drive Operational Efficiency
Recognizing the need to operate both transactional and analytical data processing in real time on a single platform, Toyota Group will implement SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA to perform core functions such as high-speed bill of materials (BoM) explosion. This versatility will allow applications to be developed on the same platform.
“We are confident that with the integrated use of both SAP S/4HANA and SAP HANA, Toyota Group will see improvements in the range, volume and speed of information management,” said Yuzuru Fukuda, president and representative director, SAP Japan.
