“This is Mobolaji Abolarin, Field Services Director, SAP West Africa. I want to give you a resounding reference for Altura. I came into contact with Altura 2 years ago when one of my projects was languishing and was in dire straits. Without having ever physically met, they agreed to come to Nigeria and undertake what was an adverse challenge. To redesign and rebuilt Payroll for 3000 employees in 2 months.
They did it on time, on budget and ever since remained the love of many Projects in Nigeria. I have ever since introduced them to other counterparts in SAP in Africa. At the moment they are working on 2 engagements with me. They are professional, intelligent and extremely efficient work force. They work with or without supervision and are very adaptable. I find their rates very reasonable and the principals very helpful. I will continue to use Altura, without reservations, I recommend the same to you.”

At the Nigeria LNG People project there was a need to bring in and retain an SAP Partner to help achieve an aggressive Go-Live goal. Altura was engaged to help address resource, solution design and delivery due to project slippage.
Altura Consulting was a part of the NLNG SAP HR and Logistics Project rollout starting in March 2009.
To redress the lagging implementation SAP needed a flexible and experienced partner who was willing to work with the project’s tight timelines and had a proven expertise in SAP specifically SAP HR, and ABAP development.
Altura provided Technical and Functional Resources; specifically, ABAP, Workflow, HR Functional and Payroll Functional Lead. NLNG was able to accomplish the Go-Live dates due to the timeliness and experienced resources that were brought for the intervention. The Client has continued to use Altura as a resource partner for Production Support work to date.
“Altura has demonstrated superior professional competence, deep project delivery experience and high desire to deliver and meet customer expectation. To date, Altura has remained our premier SAP Resource partner from India and they have met both short term and long-term project delivery requirements of our Clients both in the SAP All in one and SAP Business One Solutions delivery.”

Altura Consulting Limited is a specialist in the HCM domain in Kenya and has an impressive track record in various industry verticals for implementation of HR solutions. The company has worked extensively with various SAP partners for product and service delivery and understands the scale, Kenya’s legal and statutory requirements as well as the complexity of the BIDCO business model. “Altura was the ideal partner to help implement this solution. They understood that there was little margin for error and that the project had to be completed on schedule and within budget,” added Patel.
As the project was large and challenging in its complexity, the roll-out was done in two clear phases. Altura implemented the core HR and Payroll management modules first, which included personal administration, organisational and time and attendance management. The time recording terminal was also upgraded to automatically update attendance records in accordance with employee work and leave schedules.
When Altura and BIDCO were satisfied with the preliminary results, phase two of the project was initiated which included the Employee Service Service (ESS) and Management Self Service (MSS) portal, training and event management, as well as solutions to deal with recruitment, succession and performance management. The ESS system offers employees instant payslip delivery, leave approval inquiries, as well as notifications of internal processes such as performance appraisals, for example.
One of the great benefits of SAP ERP HCM is the tight integration with HR data and processes with other SAP ERP components and other SAP software – and via the MSS portal, provides greater opportunities for management executives to produce customised and detailed reports instantly.
Andrew Waititu, MD of SAP East Africa says with the implementation of the SAP HCM solution, Bidco is progressing well on its cost-reduction initiatives. “Previous problems such as duplicate data entry and data reconciliation no longer occur. In addition, Bidco has one consistent location to find any kind of information about HR and payroll to keep apprised of changes. Today, thanks to SAP and Altura, Bidco’s HR group delivers its services faster than ever before, heightening employee satisfaction and making the organisation more efficient.” commented Waititu.
