Royal FloraHolland joins SimplyRun to manage their SAP S/4HANA Digital Core

Royal FloraHolland has selected McCoy & Partners to Run & Improve their SAP S/4HANA system landscape. With the SimplyRun service of McCoy, Royal FloraHolland has a fully managed landing zone for processes like finance and procurement that are implemented in the SAP Digital Core. After implementing the SAP S/4HANA landscape on Amazon Web Services, McCoy now manages these systems in their cloud born platform SimplyRun.

A key ambition in the business strategy of Royal FloraHolland is to transform from a more traditional flowering auction, to a digital and global market hub for flowering businesses around the world. By bringing its SAP Digital Core to a cloud based landing zone, Royal FloraHolland secures the continuity of the business support applications. This enables the firm to fully focus on the extremely high paced digitization of the company’s core processes by developing new business models and highly innovative customer engagements.

Gerhard van der Bijl (Chief Digital Officer of Royal FloraHolland): “We are very happy with the performance of McCoy & Partners during our SAP implementation projects. The flexibility and very high quality of the people working on the project really made the difference. Running our new SAP S/4HANA Digital Core in the SimplyRun landing zone is a great fit with our digital strategy and guarantees our business support continuity”

“We are truly proud to have Royal FloraHolland join the SimplyRun landing zone”, states Jeroen Seuntiëns (Director of McCoy & Partners). “Being a key strategic customer for us with a market leading digital strategy, FloraHolland has a wonderful fit with our core values. We are fully committed to further support and accelerate Royal FloraHolland’s digital initiatives with our Move, Run, Improve paradigm.”
