Ecover is a manufacturer of ecological detergents and cleansing agents. Ecover is also active in the professional cleansing sector. Its Wellments line of natural cosmetics meets customer needs in the areas of personal hygiene and body care.
The company was founded in 1980 in Belgium. Ecover has been a trendsetter from the very start: as a pioneering company, it marketed a phosphate-free washing powder even before phosphates were branded as a problem. Ecover’s products are made to be effective and have an absolute minimum effect on the environment. They are based on sustainable plant and mineral ingredients, chosen to work well and limit the chemicals in private homes and the environment.
SAP Business All-in-One has been implemented by Oasis Consultants to support Ecover’s business operations, ranging from product design and development, over procurement, inventory management, production and quality management, to sales and services. The implementation project was based on SAP Best Practices. The scope contained roll-outs to France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Switzerland and the United States are added in a second phase.
