The Energy & Utilities (EUC) industry has always demanded extremely rapid innovation and adaptation. FARYS, which provides a wide range of EUC services within the Flanders region in Belgium, has long possessed this drive within the DNA of its organization. This most recently manifested in a digital transformation effort meant to introduce the SAP S/4HANA® ERP and Business Technology platforms within its business. By doing so, FARYS intended to become more efficient and improve its ability to expand and reach its numerous customers.

The business partnered with Capgemini and SAP to develop a transformation roadmap and execute the project. Together, the partners ensured that the new technology was put in place smoothly and supported FARYS’s overarching vision. Now, the business is running nearly all of its services on SAP S/4HANA®. With the new platform and the variety of tools that it enabled, such as smart meters, mobile applications, and a customer-facing portal, FARYS has managed to become more efficient, deliver a more standardized user experience, and gain enterprise-wide insight that can help guide critical business decisions.

In light of the ongoing COVID crisis, the critical nature of digital transformation within the EUC industry has become increasingly clear as companies have scrambled to deliver essential services without disruption. Thanks to the innovative spirit built into FARYS’s heart, its shift to a fully digital core has made it well-prepared for the current period of unprecedented challenge as well as the future. Building off of their long-running history, FARYS, Capgemini, and SAP will continue to find ways to remain on the forefront of innovation and provide optimal services to customers throughout the Flanders region.
