SAP Business All-in-One for Bespak
 
SAP Business All-in-One solution helps manufacturer integrate new acquisition

After being acquired by Consort Medical plc in 2009, Bespak was keen to integrate the new acquisition into the wider Bespak company and create synergies by centralizing key functions such as finance, purchasing, and production planning

Success Story 

SAP Business All-in-One Solution Helps Manufacturer Integrate New Acquisition

As a mature user of SAP software, Bespak decided to support this strategy by replacing a variety of disparate software packages and proprietary applications at Bespak Injectables with an SAP Business All-in-One solution. Bespak turned to SAP partner NTT DATA Business Solutions (UK) Ltd for help with the implementation.

Targeting a completion date that would enable Bespak to start the financial year using the new solution, the joint Bespak - NTT DATA Business Solutions project team worked quickly to roll out the software in just 60 consultancy days – approximately five times faster than average for this type of implementation. According to Mark Newman, SAP service manager at Bespak, teamwork was also a key success factor. “Communication between NTT DATA Business Solutions consultants and our own internal team was excellent,” he confirms. “Everyone worked closely to meet our objectives on time and within budget.”

Bespak Injectables now uses the SAP solution to support everything from stock management to accounting. And with data processed and stored within the same standardized software, the organization has been able to centralize finance, purchasing, and production planning functions at Bespak’s King’s Lynn headquarters. As a result, the company has benefited from improved efficiency while reducing costs. “The integrated SAP software has allowed us to standardize many processes and procedures across both sites, making staff feel that they are all part of the same unified organization," says Laura Hetherington, Marketing Executive at Bespak Injectables.

Mark Newman conclude: “Rolling out our SAP Business All-in-One solution has supported a smooth transition and helped us to modernize and upgrade Bespak Injectables’ enterprise performance infrastructure in a very short space of time, in a relatively inexpensive way. We now know that it is a relatively straightforward task to roll out our standard SAP software to other companies, and we have a proven model that can work well again for any future acquisitions.”
