QA Consultants saves Toronto Hydro up to $85 Million with SAP integration

QA Consultants saves Toronto Hydro up to $85 Million with SAP integration

QA Consultants recently completed the largest SAP footprint implementation in Canada.  The project utilized a “big bang” implementation approach which was high risk, especially from a quality perspective.  The launch was very successful and a huge win and accomplishment for Toronto Hydro, Robert Wong, and the Toronto Hydro SAP teams.  This implementation and the QA and testing program was a standard example of how it should be done for any/all SAP Implementations. QAC’s engagement was delivered on time and $1,200 under budget.
