The Challenge

Planning for Growth

Manual, disparate systems and a small staff in locations scattered throughout the world were hampering the company’s ability to plan ahead and set the stage for meteoric growth.

Enter SAP

A Solid Mentoring Relationship

Working with mentors from SAP and Endeavor, and using Design Thinking workshops, the company completely re-imagined their production system to enable greater transparency of information, more solid business projections, and the ability to communicate quickly and easily. Ultimately, after examining the IT infrastructure and the company’s needs, they chose to implement SAP Business One.

Fumajet is a great example of the power of public and private partnerships for the greater good.— Luciana Coen, Head of Corporate Affairs, SAP Brazil

With more reliable information, we can make important business decisions for inventory management. And, people are communicating across the company. — Marcelo Machado, Director at Fumajet

Support from SAP increased Fumajet's overall value to investors.

Journey Ahead

It’s a New Beginning for Fumajet

They are looking to add more employees, and expand their customer base in Brazil and other countries, helping to combat the spread of vector-borne diseases, saving lives and making the world a better, healthier place.
In early 2016, Fumajet received financial investment from the Criatec 2 fund, with Bozano Investments as the national manager and Triaxis Capital as the operational advisor.
