August 30, 2022 

IBA Group implemented an SAP S/4HANA solution for Satpayev Mining and Processing Plant. The system went into commercial operation two months ahead of schedule. The launch of the SAP S/4HANA-based information management system helped one of the largest enterprises in Kazakhstan improve productivity and business processes.

The project aimed to minimize manual labor, make transparent pricing, and create a single information management system for all users.

The new system handles 100 business processes and 124 business functions. The implementation of the project provided real time access to complete and reliable information about the production processes to users from different locations, including the central office in Ust-Kamenogorsk and the production site in Kokpekti District.
