The year is 2015. Only a handful of people, a small office in the heart of Budapest and one dream. The dream to establish the globally already recognized brand of delaware on the Hungarian market and win not only the respect and recognition of the local customers, but their hearts as well. During these years, the current teams have emerged: our Infrastructure Team focusing mainly on the Eastern European market, our Digital Team working on fascinating .NET based CMS and CRM projects and our SAP Team providing expertise to the international efforts as well as gaining more and more ground within the circle of the other ERP consultancy companies in the country.
A vital part of our identity
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) can mean different things to different organizations. Most would define it as all of the initiatives or practices put in place by an organization to foster sustainability. Socially responsible companies need to be economically viable, have a positive impact on society, and respect and preserve the environment.
Building an organization that lasts
A socially responsible company goes beyond the profit motive. To delaware, CSR means that we try to leave the world a little better than we found it. Every day, the #peopleofdelaware help us to do exactly that.
realizing a dream for today, tomorrow and succeeding generations is not something you do overnight, and we know our responsibility goes beyond taking care of our own company - that's why CSR has become a vital part of our identity and our strategyJan Delaere - Founding Partner & Chairman
More than checking a box
Over the years, the delaware CSR task force has launched several initiatives and continues to do so on a regular basis. We truly believe that thanks to these efforts, we can have a positive impact on our broader environment.
We support reforestation
delaware has partnered up with WeForest to engage smallholder farmers in reversing deforestation. Since 2015, we have funded the planting of over 79,000 trees. Obviously, we are extremely proud to be able to support WeForest in their reforestation projects...
We invest in sustainable mobility
SDG 13 “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts” serves as a focal point for delaware’s Fleet department. We encourage all employees to decrease their average fuel consumption and reduce their CO2 emissions.
We believe in diversity & inclusion
Did you know that diversity in leadership teams lead to 21% better financial results? (source: McKinsey) Or that the most inclusive organizations are 6 times more likely to innovate? (source: Harvard Business Review)
Over the past decades, the internet has become an essential part of our lives and its use in the corporate environment is also constantly expanding. Outstanding among these is the use of the Cloud, which is also one of the main strategic pillars for SAP. Although the ever-expanding range of cloud-based services has been available within SAP since 2012, logistics and most of all warehousing logistics has been so far less open towards this area.
However, the general growing trust in the direction of the Cloud and in many cases the applications that are only available through the Cloud platform have also led to a more open mindset in this industry as well. The SAP integration of transport (TM – Transport Management) and warehouse logistics (EWM - Extended Warehouse Management) already contains many process improvement and optimization elements, but the use of the Cloud expands the range of possibilities further.
Most of us like standard solutions due to how fast, easy, and effective they are. Then how is it even possible that not everybody chooses this option? Every company has its very own, unique business need and at delaware we know perfectly well that there are special cases — and special customers — who will require a completely unique solution to suit them perfectly. This was the case with Joris Ide as well.
