Repona's IoTshowcase at SAPSA Impulse 2017
Repona’s booth was very well attended at SAPSA Impulse. There, you could enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee served from a coffee machine directly connected to a cloud-based S4 HANA system. Ordering could be done from one’s phone using a seamless application that we built with the help of Neptune tools. To show how the Internet-of-things could be used, we linked sensors that could detect the levels of coffee, water and milk and were managed via a service app. Finally, they had the opportunity to have a discussion with Elna Heimdal Nilsson, world champion in Thai boxing and PhD in atmospheric chemistry who represented epitome of Repona’s essence. Repona has once again shown that we are on the front line.

Repona's Customer Event : 2017
Repona’s annual customer event became a success again this year. We had a record participation with over 100 customers, colleagues and partners in the industry. Topics that were dealt with were the latest version of S4 HANA, how Perstorp works with Neptune and how Actimate can help you speed up the physical activity of your employees. However, Elna Heimdal Nilsson’s presentation on how teamwork has been a prerequisite for her dual careers in the Thai boxing and academia, made the greatest impact and was the most talked about. Afterwards, Finn Inn served a good meal as usual and everyone mingled at Repona’s office in the evening.
Thank you to all who made it to the event.
