NMBS/SNCB, supported by bridgX and Ypto, named winner of the EMEA SAP Quality Awards 2018

March 13, 2019 Brussels – bridgX today announced that the Belgian railway operator SNCB/NMBS, supported by implementation partners bridgX and Ytpo, is one of the winners of the prestigious SAP® Quality Awards 2018 for the region of Europe, Middle East and Africa in the category “Fast Delivery” after winning the gold award for the region of Belgium and Luxembourg last year.

SAP, a worldwide leader in software for enterprise applications, awards the SAP Quality Awards every year to projects with the highest delivery standards that bring significant added value to the organization in which such projects are implemented.

SNCB, Belgian railway operator, can now offer guaranteed services to its passengers in the event of a strike. In order to make this possible in practice, SNCB built a digital SAP Fiori® solution for SNCB employees, in which the strike objective can be registered in a simple and quick manner. With the collected data, SNCB will then be able to create a revised timetable.

Petra Blanckaert, HR director of SNCB, said, “Implementing a modern HR policy is an important point on our agenda. SNCB strives to innovate the service to its employees and to implement digital technologies in a seamless and user-friendly manner. This SAP Quality Award puts SNCB on the map as a digital railway company. Obtaining the award is a big boost for all our employees as well as our implementation partners.

As an SNCB subsidiary, Ypto provides the IT services for the railway operator. Bert Boonen, Digital HR Lead of Ypto, said, “We take care of the operations and maintenance of technical platforms and support all business processes. Ypto and bridgX have a successful partnership for more than 10 years now, which has helped us to meet the challenges of the ‘digital’ HR transformation at SNCB. We have worked on this project as a team and we are proud to receive this highest SAP trophy together.

bridgX, an SAP Gold Partner specializing in SAP ERP Human Capital Management and SAP® SuccessFactors® solutions, is fully engaged in improving the Employee Experience. Because of its love for innovation and the ability to implement the newest technologies in the HR world, bridgX has been a perfect match for this project from the beginning. Raf Rottiers, CEO of bridgX, says, “This SNCB project, with a tight deadline, required a strong focus from the entire project team. The bridgX team is particularly proud to contribute to this project and looks forward to working with SNCB and Ypto to further implement the challenging digital HR roadmap. ”

On Wednesday April 3rd, 2019 SAP will announce who takes home a Gold, Silver or Bronze regional SAP Quality Award during a gala dinner award ceremony at Heidelberg Castle near the SAP headquarters in Walldorf.
