IBA Group Facilitates Currency Transition in SAP for Croatian System Integrator

June 5, 2023 

IBA Group successfully executed a project to facilitate the transition from the Croatian kuna to the euro for one of the largest system integrators specializing in ICT solutions. IBA Group flawlessly executed the migration process, enabling the client to adopt the new currency in their ERP system while maintaining the required functionality and system performance within the defined deadlines.

With Croatia’s integration into the European Union, the country officially embraced the euro as its currency starting from January 1, 2023. This necessitated the completion of the project within the designated timeframe to ensure uninterrupted business operations and compliance with all relevant legislative requirements.

Croatia EUR Changeover

To ensure a smooth transition, IBA Group’s team implemented changes across all modules and integration interfaces in the SAP system that involved currency information. To accommodate the currency switch, IBA Group made necessary modifications to key modules, including finance (FI), controlling (CO), and logistics (MM/SD).

As a result, the company obtained a stable ERP system that seamlessly operates with the euro. IBA Group’s specialists expertly handled complex tasks, including database conversion, adaptation of report forms, and performance optimization. During the initial stages, the ERP system supported both the old and the new currency, allowing the client to conform to legislative requirements and continue their business activities during the transitional period.
