Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy
After their acquisition of IBM’s PC division, Lenovo learned that quick decisions are key to keeping the company on strategy.
Lenovo needed a solution to provide the business with real-time data for fast, smart decision making.
Enter SAP: The SAP Experience
The SAP Services organization developed a long-term relationship during the implementation process by enabling knowledge transfer to the Lenovo staff. The team providing SAP MaxAttention services proactively managed risk to help ensure success during each stage of the company’s global deployments.
By leveraging SAP Services throughout the entire project lifecycle, both companies were able to work closely together to support Lenovo’s future growth and the management of their processes.
