Create IT leverages Sumol+Compal's digital transformation with agile support services

Investment in Microsoft tools, such as SharePoint and Power Apps, has accelerated the digital transformation of Sumol+Compal in several business-critical areas and relied on the agile support of Create IT.

Lisbon, May 10, 2021 - Create IT, a Portuguese company focused on the development of critical multiplatform and business support systems, was selected by Sumol+Compal to provide agile support services to various business systems.

“With Create IT we have the guarantee of stable and updated systems, as well as the security in the good functioning of the environments they support”, reveals Hugo Gonçalves, Information Systems Manager at Sumol+Compal.
