Elektrownia Skawina S.A. is one of the largest enterprises in Skawina. Except for its basic activity, the company has also external activities: it leases equipment and vehicles, it runs a motor vehicle diagnostic station and a Company Clinic. Until now the power plant used the software of a local company. Applications implemented by small local deliverers usually have limited functionality; besides, as technologies and legal requirements change constantly, their adaptation is long and costly. Separate functionalities are either not integrated at all or only basic data can be transferred between modules fluently. This was the case of Elektrownia Skawina. The Board of Directors of the company expected their employees to prepare strictly specialist reports which were required by the Investor – CEZ. Achieving this required from the employees many hours spent on preparing and presenting specific data. Therefore, standardization in the Group became an important reason for choosing a new IT solution.
In order to make it possible for the company to work properly, it was decided that one should invest in a new IT solution which should satisfy the needs of the Investor and raise the competitiveness of the company on the energy market.
