About the company
Niconovum AB, a Swedish company has the mission is to develop market leading Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT). The company was acquired by Reynolds American Inc (NYSE: RAI) the parent company of RJ Reynolds Tobacco in 2009 and operated as part of an international business unit. Some of the world’s leading smoking control experts are behind Niconovum. It was founded and is managed by many of the individuals that were pivotal in the development of Nicorette, the current world leader in NRT products.
The need for an ERP Platform with a lower Total Cost of Ownership was triggered when Reynolds American restructured its international businesses in late 2015. The remaining businesses including Niconovum could not justify the TCO of an on-premise ERP operating platform.
SAP® contacted ERP Logic in October 2015 to ask for assistance to help Reynolds American migrate Niconovum from SAP® on-premise ERP to SAP® Business ByDesign® by January 2016. The need for rapid change was triggered by the restructuring of the international Business unit and need to migrate off of the on-premise solution.
ERP Logic mobilized a team in the US and in Europe to respond to SAP®/Niconovum and quickly deployed SAP® Business ByDesign®. Moreover, ERP Logic committed to a fixed price deployment. After deployment, ERP Logic and Niconovum entered into a support agreement to assist Niconovum meet the needs of business users after deployment.
The new ERP platform was delivered on time on budget allowing Reynolds American to complete the restructuring and Niconovum to operate without disruption.
