The Hershey Company is a global confectionery leader known to the world through its chocolate, such as Hershey’s Bars and the Hershey’s Kiss. Hershey has approximately 21,000 employees around the world who work every day to deliver delicious, quality products. The company has more than 80 world-wide brands that drive more than $7.4 billion in annual revenues.
Building on its core business, Hershey is expanding its portfolio to include a broader range of delicious snacks. The company remains focused on growing its presence in key international markets while continuing to extend its competitive advantage in North America.
Hershey has made the strategic decision to migrate to HANA, and is making the journey with Panaya’s testing solutions. While Panaya’s solutions will save Hershey a large amount of money, the top reason that a large multinational corporation like Hershey depends on Payana is the mitigation of the risk of go live errors and the reduction in time to market. For example, in a previous purchase of Panaya’s SPS solution, the chocolate company’s project timeline was reduced from 3.5 months to 1.5 months. So now as partners, Panaya will accompany Hershey on the sweet road to success.
