Finnlamelli, part of the Finnish DEN Group, is a builder and supplier of turn-key ecological log buildings and houses. DEN Group has a long-term growth strategy, and they seek growth also from international markets. To support their plans, they started to look for a comprehensive, continuously developing and scalable ERP solution for Finnlamelli. After careful mapping of the choices and familiarization with the different solutions, they chose the cloud-based SAP Business ByDesign as the backbone of their operations. Islet Group was chosen as the partner to deliver the transformation project revolving the modern technology solution.

“At Den Group, we aim to open-mindedly and diversely utilize the newest technology and the possibilities that it creates. We manage long supply chains from designing all the way to delivery. We want to guarantee high quality throughout our processes but also accordingly to our growth strategy, enable scalability of our operations also in the future. Based on these factors we wanted to choose the modern, extensive and continuously developing solution of SAP Business ByDesign. With the solution, our goal is to further streamline our delivery processes, improve our already high customer satisfaction and to keep developing our profitability sustainably and long-term.”, tells Chief Development Officer, former Business Officer of Finnlamelli and member of DEN Group’s management group, Markku Uotinen.

The choice of the right partner happened naturally along with the choice of technology solution. We were convinced by Islet’s experience, knowhow, and ability to bring the project safely to shore with us both through the expertise shown in the mapping phase but also via a successful Proof of Concept project.
