Our client, a major nation-wide meat producer, was actively using local WMS and TMS. As a result, their 5,000 employees used to waste much time and effort storing and processing a lot of data in different systems.
To increase the effectiveness of the document flow, the client decided to move all the processes to one SAP ERP system. Massive migration was about to happen, since enormous amounts of data from different legacy systems had to be centralized.
The client had extremely high requirements for a performance tuning project contractor. They wanted to entrust the task only to a highly experienced team.
The choice fell on PFLB, as the company has a proven track record of delivering SAP load testing projects for many corporate clients around the world.

There are few companies in the IT systems quality assurance market that have expertise in SAP testing, but PFLB is one of the few that do.

The company implemented a full-fledged omnichannel approach to sales, which means a unified product assortment, prices, and services, whether buying in stores or online. The stores share format and conceptual design. In addition to an effective retail format and a store concept that is customer-oriented, the company also offers high-quality customer service.
PFLB was hired to test an integrated set of SAP systems, particularly with respect to system performance.
As any enterprise expands, to ensure the platform’s reliability our customer hired PFLB to conduct load testing.
PFLB’s work helped the client make an informed decision about deploying the system into a production environment. Performance optimization based on an analysis of the test results reduced the time required to complete the main logistics business scenario by more than 2 times and increased the speed of individual transactions by up to 8 times.
Our customer, a regular PFLB client and one of the largest retail chains, uses the SAP BW platform to perform this analysis. A few years ago, they decided to make it more efficient by selecting the fastest database management system (DBMS).
