International SAP Rollout
Your company is growing and you have established new sites in several countries? Now, the subsidiary shall be integrated into the parent company in terms of IT. We at Phoron have done rollouts of SAP systems in over 30 countries worldwide. Also in the “difficult” countries like Brazil.
Standardized business processes and their respective uniform key figures create a premise for the rollout of an ERP system.
The exact identification of these processes and as a result the conception of the group template is absolutely necessary.
Another important aspect is to understand the conditions and requirements of the rollout.
What are the long-term strategies of the company?
How do you foresee the company developing?
What are the technical conditions regarding current software and connections?
What number of employees and turnover size do the individual subsidiaries have?
Since not every subsidiary has the same business purpose (production, sales, service, repair, etc.) an appropriate planning of implementations that match the company size and business content of the subsidiaries is required.
In this respect the group template forms the basis for the templates of the further sites. These are designed so that they can be easily adopted and supported. Smaller subsidiaries work with a template that is optimized for their business transactions and thus encourage higher user acceptance.
We are of the view that the rollout of your ERP system needs to planned with foresight and implemented ensuring the system is capable of growing with your company. So together with you, we can build a system that encompasses strategic decisions and supports the long term goals of the company. Our aim is to provide you with a system that creates no dependencies. The simpler and more structured a system, the less hassle for you - in terms of costs and resources.
Do you operate SAP software in the parent company? This often raises the question whether it is useful to operate it in the subsidiaries too. Despite the functional scope of SAP ERP, which eventually may not be used to this extent at the subsidiary, the function is not decisive, rather it is the implementation effort and support.
