The new solution’s structure is based on S/4HANA (installed on HANA Enterprise Cloud) and Cloud solution SAP SuccessFactors for crew management as well as human resource management (HRMS) of the Group. SAP OnBoard, a third innovative solution based on SAP Edge Services, introduces specific functions of S/4HANA in the fleet. This is one of the largest and most innovative implementations of the specifc platform in the Greek market as well as on global level.
