Islet Group and Delfoi, a Finnish software company specialized in production planning and production optimization have begun a cooperation. The partnership aims to offer customers the opportunity to significantly improve the efficiency in their production planning and optimization through advanced technology solutions. In practice, this means managing even more complicated production processes and increasing visibility and punctuality in production schedules.

Islet is one of the leading service providers of SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business ByDesign -ERP deliveries in Finland and has over 20 years of experience in developing production processes. Delfoi has over 30 years of experience in production planning and simulation especially in the manufacturing industry. In cooperation Islet and Delfoi strive to help customers in different industries to improve their competitiveness and profitability by for example speeding up the product’s manufacturing and delivery processes.

As a result of the cooperation, Delfoi ja Islet’s partner SAP, the global market leader in ERP solutions, have built a standard integration between Delfoi Planner, a fine loading and planning software and SAP Business ByDesign, SAP’s cloud-based ERP solution developed for growing SME companies. The integration to Delfoi’s world-class production planning tool makes it possible to manage even more complicated and diverse production processes in SAP Business ByDesign. The integrated end-to-end solution brings visibility to all production phases. Scheduling and optimization of production boost productivity and make change management easier. Results can be seen in better inventory optimization through more accurate need dates, as better delivery reliability and as increased ability to predict the needs in production.

”Almost without exception, our software is integrated to an ERP system to answer special needs in production planning and management. I’m really happy of both the cooperation with Islet and the Delfoi Planner – SAP Business ByDesign standard integration developed together with SAP. This enables optimization of lead time in production, improving productivity and delivery reliability, easier change management and added visibility on a whole new level also to companies in SME sector.”, says Raimo Puro, CEO and founder of Delfoi.

Like all solution areas of SAP Business ByDesign, the production module is fully integrated with the other areas of the solution. The solution also has embedded reporting and analytics capabilities. The Delfoi expansion and the ready integration bring customers using SAP Business ByDesign the opportunity to further deepen the capabilities in their production. Correspondingly, to current Delfoi Planner customers thinking of an ERP solution, the modern SAP Business ByDesign is a noteworthy option with ready-built connections to Delfoi. The standard integration means a faster deployment but also significant savings in the preparatory as well as the development work related to it.
