SAP Lifecycle Services

Businesses want to reap the rewards of SAP, without the high implementation costs and disruptive upgrades. Capgemini replaces the traditional "one-shot implement and pay" approach with a subscription service that offers continuous improvement, reduced costs, predictability and flexibility.

We at Fiat have achieved an important business improvement and increased operational and service agility through an engagement with Capgemini covering in the dealer financing area. Throughout SAP Lifecycle, we develop, maintain and innovate our applications leveraging Capgemini’s bandwidth of capabilities, optimizing our landscape and lifecycle around our SAP-based common dealer financing system.
