Sicagen India Limited, including its subsidiary, Wilson Cables Private Limited, Singapore (Sicagen), is a global conglomerate company and is part of AM International, with operations in six countries. Sicagen’s core business is trading building materials’ products, such as steel pipes, cables, and cement. It also offers a diverse range of services, including power and control systems, industrial packaging, specialty chemicals, and boat building, all which are across different customer segments.
Sicagen previously managed its enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes with spreadsheets and a legacy FoxPro-based accounting system. There was no integration between divisions, causing confusion and complexity to users. The flooding in Chennai motivated Sicagen to enhance data security and minimize downtime by moving to cloud infrastructure and adopting a robust ERP system to support its growth strategy.
