Hilla Group launched a project in the fall of 2022, the purpose of which is to combine on one platform the sales, customer management and production processes of all products that have entered the group through organic growth during the last three years.
Hilla Group makes versatile use of Anygraaf's products, and with the integration of the platform ad department including sales has switched to using AProfit's portal.
As part of the actual implementation project, AProfit's portals were put into use at the beginning of March 2023 for the entire group.
The project is progressing in stages so that the last step is to convert SLP Kustannus' old circulation system and its customers to the new CProfit base in Hilla. After this, all the group's customers will be available and managed through one common system.
"From the system supplier's point of view, the project progressed as planned to the finish line, although natural schedule adjustments can always be made in such a large project. The introduction of AProfit portals first took place by ensuring the functionality of the solution using the Proof-of-Concept method and careful definitions based on Hilla's needs. The group has a wide range of both paper and digital products in a wide geographical area, so no package solution could have met Hilla Group's needs", says technical project manager Jyri Vanninen from Anygraaf.
"The introduction was made easier by the fact that the AProfit portal relies on the existing AProfit structures in all the core magazines of the Hilla Group. Of course, the project also gave the opportunity to make the structures even more similar to modern construction."
"The project continues in the spirit of continuous development and we believe that our solution will serve Hilla for a long time to come, even though the operating environment is constantly changing," says Vanninen.
The owner of the AProfit portal project at Hilla Group has been Kirsi Kela, sales director of corporate sales.
"The project has progressed within months from the definition phase to implementation and rapid deployment. Our system project as a whole has been huge, and in its various phases it has been important to take into account the situation in other areas of the project as well. Mutual dependence has also defined the progress of the project. Our wishes and needs have been listened to and an effort has been made to implement them as flexibly as possible", says Kirsi Kela.
"As the project continues, as spring progresses towards continuous development, we are ready to help Anygraaf develop an even better product. Under the leadership of our project manager Joachim Kåla, we are assembling an internal development team at Hilla Group, which communicates regularly with Anygraaf's development team."
