Category: SAP   |   Presented By: SAP HANA

Homes and agricultural facilities across India trust the ecofriendly and durable water storage solutions and piping systems provided by Vectus Industries. Vectus has been a pioneer in manufacturing and supplying a range of plastic piping systems and water storage tanks for plumbing and sanitation. With manufacturing facilities, offices, and depots spread across 13 locations in India, Vectus needed a consolidated digital core that would streamline operations and increase transparency for the business, distributors, and customers.
