Current Challenges

Many SAP clients carry out Ex Inspections using 3rd party products. This can lead to difficulties in terms of accessing Work Management data as well as inefficiency due to the use of multiple IT systems, ultimately hindering the concept of a ‘single source of truth’ and hence affecting better decision-making.
