Abstract

The customer is a leading player in the FMCG sector with an impressive spread across North America. Given the agility of data exchange among verticals, the organization was exploring possibilities to lessen the burden in the digital space.

In an endeavour to integrate data with core business processes, the business stumbled upon the following roadblocks –

  • Taut processes that don’t respond to transforming ecosystems
  • Reporting complexities and thus delay in change requests
  • Outdated user interfaces and overall customer experience
  • Lack of integration possibilities and process transparency

Apple Consulting Group (ACG) assisted the customer in their journey to adapt digital transformation within the SAP ecosystem. After a thorough analysis of the customer’s ERP landscape, ACG prepared a detailed blueprint to achieve rapid implementation of new business models.

Why SAP S/4 HANA?

With the proposed legacy to cloud migration, the business foresaw the following advantages –

With focus on delivering the best products at the best prices, the company recognized how a digital transformation could make it simpler to get businesses done internally and to ensure quality products to customers worldwide.

ACG implemented SAP S/4 HANA to replace the existing legacy system and provide a digital core. This enhanced the production process, stock management, and reporting as well as easier access to HR data. Thus, the customer was able to achieve better business growth while scaling new growth in the digital economy.
