In order to do this the current condition of the system is analyzed and the necessary changes are defined. The credit management, all the functions of material and financial flows follow-ups, the operations conduct in the online mode will be implemented. The system should be brought fully in line with the business and the Russian legislation requirements. The consultants’ tasks also include trainings of the users and help in organizing the accounting processes. The second stage of the project includes the full integration of the Russian division into the global BRF SAP system.
