Our customer is a global leader in the metals industry. The company has a multi billion dollar turnover and operates across more than 250 sites across the world.
Having grown through local regional acquisitions over a 100+ years history, the company has developed as autonomous regional organisations. Given the global nature of the company and with the majority of sales conducted through their global trade organisation, they need a global ERP system, with common processes that can be adopted by all, to enable a global position report on material to better exploit the market. Moreover, the local regional IT systems that support the core business were becoming unsupported and will reach end-of-life over the next three years.
The programme’s purpose is to enable the organisation to have globally integrated business processes and real-time management of key business decisions to improve customer and colleague experience. The programme had a number of key objectives to successfully transform the organisation.
