AGT Increases Efficiency in All Processes through SAP BPC Project
Founded in Antalya in 1984, AGT is a leading global company operating in the furniture components industry today. In its modern production facilities, located on a total of 450 thousand square meters in Antalya Organized Industrial Zone, AGT serves the furniture, decoration, and construction industries. Making progress on the basis of its determination to become a market driving leader in the global arena and its vision of “AGT Effect” combining wood and technology, AGT collaborated with SAP’s Global | Platinum Partner NTT DATA Business Solutions Turkey in the SAP BPC (Business Planning and Consolidation) Project to facilitate the company’s business processes. With its sales points in 5 continents, in addition to its broad network of dealers across Turkey, the company wished to significantly increase efficiency, accelerate its financial closures, and reduce the risk of error. This quest enabled them to meet SAP BPC as the best solution to meet their needs.
AGT soon realized its budgeting process with the integrated solution SAP BPC, increasing its corporate performance. Implemented within such short a time as 6 months, the solution was made available to the teams without any additional expertise requirements thanks to the familiar user experience it enables via its Microsoft Excel interface.
“Fast Simulation Project” in budget planning
A project titled “Fast Simulation Project” was implemented on the SAP BPC solution. This project enabled the budget planning teams to quickly respond to the administration’s amendment requests with financial statements and analysis reports which took only minutes to generate. The sales budget was generated by the budget planning specialists in a completely dynamic manner upon selecting the top ‘n’ customers with the highest actual revenues and the top ‘n’ product groups sold to them (“top ‘n’ selection”). Similar product groups were managed via the representative Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) selected.
The variations in the amounts of use in material formulas and the structures of the component variations in the formulas were dynamically built. Percentage changes were enabled on a product group basis to the items on the formulas which had the greatest impact on costs. Thanks to all these processes, control over the budget set-up was increased, the end-to-end cycle time of the entire process was reduced, and the system was enabled to make
suggestions based on the smart codes written into the system.
The time savings enabled by the “Fast Simulation Project” guided the making of accurate and significant strategic decisions. Additional benefits were enabled in terms of the company’s decision-making processes by the budget developed, actual comparable reports and calculated rates, thanks to full integration of the system with SAP in its operations.
