Accenture helped a leading global alcoholic beverages company successfully deploy a new SAP-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in North America. This implementation now provides the company with more accurate product planning, inventory management, customer order allocation and visibility throughout its supply chain.
To facilitate product planning and gain transparency throughout its supply chain, the company identified the need for a new ERP system to help meet its current information, finance and performance, and supply chain management needs. In 2009, the company set about deploying an SAP-based ERP solution for its operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico. However, the systems integrator originally selected by the company failed to deploy the needed ERP solution.
This stalled its plan for new systems integration within a tight time frame. The alcoholic beverages company turned to Accenture to bring the ERP implementation project back on course.
Accenture took over the project in May 2011. Our team of skilled professionals:
This SAP implementation also allowed the conception and roll out of finance and controlling shared services to the company’s North American operations.
The project team consisted of members from various geographies, and leveraged a competitive cost strategy and 24/7 delivery schedule. This concept was extended to production support, where the solution was extended to dedicated teams in Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Philippines for ongoing system maintenance and enhancements.
Accenture has helped the client successfully deploy the new SAP ECC system in the United States, Canada and Mexico in six months.
When the alcoholic beverages company deploys this SAP-based solution to all its divisions, the full benefits of a global system will be realized. These include gains in supply-chain efficiency and reports; improved transportation cost analytics and savings; and increased efficiency within the warehouse using the SAP RF scanning solution.
