“Digital transformation is important for sustainable competition”

Yorglass CEO Semavi Yorgancılar and Felece Managing Director Oğuz Kaya were guests on the Digital Strategy show airing on Bloomberg HT this week.

In the program where ERP and cloud technologies in smart business processes were discussed, Yorglass’ digital transformation adventure was discussed under Felece’s leadership.

Addressing the concept of intelligent enterprise in the program, Felece General Manager Oğuz Kaya said, “Digital transformation happens with the right human resources, processes and infrastructure. When we manage these 3 basic problems with the right principles, it is inevitable that we will transform into smart companies. When we organize this process in integration with the right infrastructure, we can report it. When a company comes first, we take care of its logistics processes first, then its financial processes, human resources and the framework in which we touch the customer. We also position new technologies such as ERP, cloud and robotics in the projects to combine them with the intelligent mechanism. Thus, intelligent decision-making mechanisms emerge. Of course, this situation has increased during the time of the pandemic, and we see that the need for the use of technology has increased 5 times more than before the pandemic. While companies used to go through this process to stay ahead of the competition, now it has become imperative to invest in technology for sustainability.

“Digitalisation is important for sustainable competition”

Yorglass CEO, Semavi Yorgancılar, who highlighted the importance of digitalization in recent supply chain issues, said:

“A very good ERP infrastructure is necessary to run a large organization. With this infrastructure, you can securely connect supply chain rings to each other. We’ve been running our business with systems and processes for 10-15 years. With the decision we made last year and our cooperation with Felece, we moved SAP’s ERP system over to our company’s business processes and systems. I call it working at the speed of thought. If you want to be competitive in a sustainable way, you have to be different from your competitors. For this, integration is very important. If you can digitize all your processes from supplier to customer, successive processes can run on one platform. This way you can gain speed and see the next steps. For example, we can do all our banking transactions digitally without making a phone call to the bank. »

Semavi Yorgancılar also explained how they created their digitization strategies and said, “Digitization is a journey. Every year in September – October, we do internal planning and then create the digitization strategy. At this point, SAP is an important resource, because the reliability of the system is very important. In addition to our warehouses in different parts of the world, we will be opening a warehouse in the United States. It is not possible to control these places with old systems,” he said.

“The use of the cloud system will gradually increase”

Oğuz Kaya said companies follow the following paths for their digitization steps:

“We coordinate and model the needs of the future, not the needs of today. “Where is the world going? Where are the similar sectors going in Turkey?” We need to analyze them properly. At this stage, Yorglass was a big company. Communication is very important to carry out the project. confidence in the team has a positive effect on the project. Of course, we first talk about the digitization of the processes then of the digitization of the system, we have a system accessible remotely, which the top management can follow then we also bring a support in terms of support and sustainability.

A dataset will continue to be trained next year as well as the data that has been created in the world so far. The data is growing tremendously. Critical points occur in growing data. The first of these is data access speed, the issue we call performance, and the second is keeping data in secure environments. We must always be prepared for scenarios where our company’s infrastructure is backed up to its systems and the backups are accessible when we want them. Therefore, the use of cloud system will gradually increase in the world.

Finally, Yorglass CEO Semavi Yorgancılar said the following about the system’s effectiveness for the company:

“Such a system has made incredible contributions to us. We are freed from our inefficient costs and processes. In doing so, we put our customer at the center of everything. We have prioritized the questions of what our customers need and how we can make them happier. Although we have gained speed, it is not easy to manage time differences in a large geographical area. At this point, it’s not a destination, it’s a tool for us.”
