Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Compañía MEGA began operating in 2001, producing ethane, propane, butane and gasoline from natural gas. As Compañía MEGA grew, it sought to separate its IT organization and take advantage of the latest technology to support its growth plans.
In particular, Compañía MEGA wanted to perform a greenfield installation of SAP SuccessFactors to support its HR processes. Compañía MEGA asked Accenture to help it deliver this new technology landscape and modernize its core HR processes.
Compañía MEGA and Accenture worked to install SAP SuccessFactors, transition the company to the new solution on the cloud and redesign manual processes to take advantage of the new system.
The two companies implemented SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, which provides a core system of record for employee information, along with employee HR self-service capabilities. They also implemented various SAP SuccessFactors modules to support a range of HR processes, including compensation, performance and goal management, succession planning, career development and e-learning.
The team used Agile development methods to work through a number of rapid iterations and quickly incorporate user feedback into the solution. Essential to this effort was Accenture myConcerto, which helped validate processes and ensure that the solution adhered to standard business processes and best practices.
A valuable difference
With the new SAP SuccessFactors solution, Compañía MEGA is seeing benefits in several areas:
Compañía MEGA now has the full range of modern HR tools and processes it needs to manage its workforce effectively.
With its self-service capabilities, the solution enables a decentralized approach to HR that is fast and efficient.
The company has reduced the number of manual and paper-based HR processes.
The move to the cloud has brought large reductions in overall IT support.
What’s more, Compañía MEGA now has its own, independent HR platform—one tailored to its needs—which can help it manage the workforce effectively to achieve growth well into the future.
