Wipro Limited has announced that it has been engaged by Sanepar (Paraná Sanitation Company) to lead the process of deploying a business management solution in the cloud, resulting in a significant acceleration of its digital transformation, in partnership with Oracle. Under the agreement, Wipro will lead the migration of Sanepar’s Back Office operations to Oracle Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
The move to the cloud will provide Sanepar with accurate, real-time insights into its business processes, accelerate decision-making and improve customer service in a rapidly evolving market environment under the new legal framework. The new Basic Sanitation Legal Framework in Brazil (Bill 4162/2019) is designed to expand the reach of water and sanitation services to at least 90 percent of all Brazilian households by the year 2033.
The new legal framework also opens the market for private investment, creating an opportunity for collaboration between public and private companies. The move to a cloud-based ERP system will increase Sanepar’s competitiveness and agility, allowing it to gain real-time insights into financial, operational, customer relationship management processes and will drive process acceleration as they continue to expand their operations.
“Sanepar seeks to promote institutional transformation through the implementation of an integrated solution for business management oriented by processes, in addition to technological modernization using cloud solutions. The expected benefits include increased reliability of information and contributions to productivity, management, decisions and organizational strategies,” said Gislaine Lopes, ERP Project Sponsor, Sanepar.
Priscila Brunetta, Administrative Director, Sanepar, said, “The implementation of the solution provided by Wipro is an important step in Sanepar’s digital evolution. Faced with a changing scenario in the regulatory framework of the sanitation sector in Brazil, Sanepar stands out by adopting measures to improve its level of excellence, which includes the use of new and advanced technologies in line with strategic organizational demands and best practices in market.”
The migration to the cloud ensures reliability in processes and performance for all applications that Sanepar may use now or in the future. “Sanepar is going through a moment of transformation and Oracle Cloud ERP is key in offering the ability to automate and manage key financial data on a single, highly secure and scalable cloud platform. This robust cloud makes workload migration planning successful and ensures complete cloud manageability,” explained Rodrigo Solon, Vice President of Applications for Oracle Brazil.
Wipro will implement new business processes on the cloud-based Oracle ERP solution which offers the benefits of reduced infrastructure costs, standardization and integration of business processes in addition to a high level of operational efficiency in the company. “Wipro’s solution meets all of the customer’s needs, and the partnership with Oracle takes real innovation to the public sector,” said Douglas Silva, Vice President and Country Head, Brazil, Wipro Limited.
Leveraging Wipro FullStride Cloud Services, Oracle Cloud ERP will cater to the volume of traffic generated by Sanepar. In addition, the solution also offers operational agility, compliance, and transparency gains through increased quality of information and reliability of strategic insights for Sanepar’s business. Planning for the ERP implementation at Sanepar has begun and the migration will be carried out following the provisioning of environments.
