Exciting SYSTEMA news! Brazil-based INTERFACE TECNOLOGIA DA INFORMAÇÃO EM SISTEMAS has joined the SYSTEMA organization. We are thrilled to welcome INTERFACE (now SYSTEMA Brazil) and their well-established team of highly experienced SAP manufacturing consultants.

SYSTEMA and Interface have successfully worked together for over 7 years, having most recently deployed SAP MII based solutions to Coca Cola FEMSA. INTERFACE and SYSTEMA began collaborating in business development and presales activities in 2013, and began the joint implementation project with Coca-Cola FEMSA in 2014. The success of this project motivated additional FEMSA sites to implement a similar solution, and since this time SYSTEMA and INTERFACE have continued to collaborate and deepen the business relationship.

Both INTERFACE and SYSTEMA are focused on ensuring our customers have the correct automation solutions in place, providing stability and efficiency while delivering on the promises of IIOT and Industry 4.0. INTERFACE is excited to be an important part of SYSTEMA’s rapidly growing SAP business and, together, the management and engineering teams are already working on a platform of preconfigured solutions to rapidly accelerate delivery schedules.
