Filipino-owned Human Heart Nature (Gandang Kalikasan Inc.) – the world’s first brand to offer affordable, 100% organic personal care products – eyes higher gains and increased efficiency with its adoption of the SAP Business One software. Gandang Kalikasan selected the SAP solution from Clerysys Philippines, Inc., a licensed SAP reseller.
“With our line of business, it is critical to have a solid business management system that our employees can rely on, especially in making sure that the distribution of our line of products are carefully monitored,” said Dylan Wilk, owner of Gandang Kalikasan.
Wilk further explains from his experience in the past how he saw the benefits of having a highly capable, scalable computer system and the consequences of not having one or having the wrong one. “Before, we had very inaccurate figures, and generation of reports took a while. Encoding of data too was done manually. With SAP, a week’s task can be accomplished in less than a day, which gives our company more time to focus on more important functions,” added Wilk.
The flexibility of SAP Business One proved to be a perfect fit for the structure of Gandang Kalikasan. With the primary features of the software, the system application was extended using basic software development. This gives Gandang Kalikasan a very high visibility of all their processes and operations, which is very important for their manufacturing, sales and purchasing functions.
The new system also provides Gandang Kalikasan with accurate, real time financial reports. These include trial balance, P&L and balance sheets. This allows them to be better informed when making critical business decisions.
“We are proud to be able to help Filipino SMEs like Gandang Kalikasan make their mark in the global market. SAP Business One will surely provide them with the necessary know-how to plan carefully for every aspect of their business in order to support their global expansion to world-class standards that customers in first-world countries would expect,” said Jennie Ligones, country manager of SAP Philippines.
Gandang Kalikasan now looks ahead to their expansion plans, with the opening of their Bicol office scheduled for January 31st. This is to be followed by expansion into Davao, Bacolod and other provinces. They also plan to open an office in California, USA this year. For more information on SAP, visit http://www.sap.com/ph
