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.
