Swiss Pharma Nigeria Limited (Swipha) is a leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, that was established in 1976 to produce and market high-quality medicines supplying Nigeria and West Africa. Acquired by French pharmaceutical company, Servier, in 2017, the company is headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria.
The company partnered with United VARs member, Serve Consulting, to implement a wide-ranging digital transformation project named ‘LEAPSWIPHA’, shorthand for ‘Lead by Improving Efficiency, Accountability, and Productivity at Swipha’.
SAP‘s flagship SAP S/4HANA platform was chosen to automate and integrate all finance, procurement, manufacturing, supply chain, and asset management modules and processes, improving accountability and efficiency.
Swipha’s implementation team followed strict adherence to SAP S/4HANA best practices during the deployment, and a combined effort involving parallel activities across various aspects of the implementation ensured timely and on-budget delivery. Since go-live, the company enjoys greater availability of business-critical information in real-time, aiding better business decision making.
“Successful modern enterprises use technology to automate processes and free up valuable internal resources for more high-value work, while also improving visibility across the operations of the business. Following its highly successful business transformation, Swipha is well-positioned to build on its reputation as a leading pharmaceutical company in West Africa." - Titilayo Adewimi, Regional Sales Direction for West Africa at SAP.
