The hydrogen-electric truck and technology manufacturer will future-proof its vision of delivering sustainable transport by building a cloud environment that supports continued growth
LONDON, UK – SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) has today announced that Tevva is the first hydrogen-electric and battery-electric vehicle manufacturer to select SAP to update its IT and technology infrastructure to deliver sustainable transport and logistics across the UK.
Having recognised the demand and need for sustainable transport amidst a climate emergency, the pioneering manufacturer is investing in technology to continue to transform its IT environment and support the development of the UK’s first hydrogen-electric truck.
As a new SAP customer, Tevva will integrate RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud to ensure its IT infrastructure is aligned with product demand. Part of the ongoing development of Tevva’s infrastructure included recognising the need to rapidly expand in order to meet market demands, which is where the Grow with SAP value proposition came in. The exclusive growth engine, aimed at hypergrowth companies, has helped to accelerate Tevva’s business in the most sustainable and efficient way possible with a SaaS solution and partnership package spanning marketing, talent, funding & IPO and growth hacking.
Now with a scalable SAP service in place, deployed via a secure and highly resilient Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based infrastructure platform, Tevva has been able to build stronger links between each part of its business, and thereby assure its future growth.
In addition to transforming its core ERP via the latest cloud version of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Tevva will also be leveraging Capgemini’s out-of-the-box Auto Path package. Part of Capgemini’s industry solution, Auto Path enables the supplier to align its operational and production plans with execution and performance measures, bringing it up to speed with global competitors. What’s more, the combination of SAP and Capgemini is empowering the organisation to simplify its IT estate and fully embrace the benefits of the cloud. SAP S/4HANA Cloud will be adopted across manufacturing, procurement, finance and supply chain – providing an approved modernisation process.
Tevva CEO and Founder Asher Bennett said: “At Tevva we’ve worked hard to deliver a product that is sustainable, scalable and fit for the future. We firmly believe that the post-fossil fuel future, which is quickly approaching, will see a new range of technologies and fuels take centre stage in the transport industry. But it was only right that to support the development of this that we examined what we had in place and understood what might be possible to bolster our rapid growth.
“SAP and Capgemini have, no doubt, helped with our expansion and we have certainly benefitted from their input and innovation.”
Umar Khan, Head of Grow with SAP, EMEA North, added: “Our partnership with Tevva is one we’re extremely excited about. It is a company that shares the same values and vision as ourselves, that a sustainable, zero-emissions future is very possible and collaborations like this are critical to achieving that goal. They’re the first electric hydrogen vehicle manufacturer to embrace RISE with SAP, recognising just how critical investment in technology is for the future.”
“Grow with SAP is the accelerator programme for fast growth scale-ups. As a true strategic partner, SAP will provide Tevva with advanced supply chain, procurement, finance and accounting, helping the business to expand its footprint in the most sustainable way possible.”
