Business Goals

Oras Group is a significant European provider of sanitary fittings: the market leader in the Nordics and a leading company in Continental Europe. The company’s mission is to make the use of water easy and sustainable and its vision is to become the European leader of advanced sanitary fittings. Information system integrations are a vital factor in the business operations of Oras. In addition to orders, confirmations and invoicing, all the telecommunications between country branches rely on the integrations of different systems, and the number and significance of integration keeps increasing.

Thanks to the flexible architecture of frends, we are now able to build integrations whenever necessary, which has been significant as efficient integrations not only save money, but also increases transparency and error handling.

Integration challenges

First of all, as an internationally operating company, for Oras it was important to unify various systems from different locations for internal and external purposes.

Secondly, Oras was seeking a long-term partner that would be able to accommodate all needs in a changing business enviornment.

Lastly, the chosen solution was expected to enchance the transparancy of operations and allow monitoring features.

Results

Oras selected frends and transferred all the previous integrations to the new eiPaaS platform. For internationally operating Oras, the integrations of information systems are a particularly vital part of business processes – and their significance has not yet reached its peak. At the core of the new system, frends combines the incoming and outgoing data transfers into the ERP (Enterprise Resourse Planning). Frends has introduced an element of transparency through its monitoring features. This type of centralised control was one of the key criteria for the new system: ORAS deployed frends’ new version as the centralised platform for its integrations, what turned to be the efficient and key part of nearly all of company’s integrations.
