Challenges and Benefits
- Outdated software making it difficult to manage globally expanding business
- Over-reliance on excel spreadsheets
- Resource and time contraints caused by heavy administration workload and teams working in silos
- End-to-end business processes, sophisticated workflows and logistics
- Single source of truth to support management decision making
- No additional IT system maintenance or infrastructure costs, offering scalability for future growth
- Full visibility of sales, production & procurement demand resulting in better inventory control and planning
- SAP Business ByDesign
As a growing company, with an international customer base, Aspen found that their business processes and incumbent legacy IT applications failed to provide them with the level of visibility required to understand their supply chain as well as being unable to match stock with increased customer demand.
Growth and Expansion with SAP Cloud ERP
Improving visibility across the business
SAP Cloud ERP solution, SAP Business ByDesign, is helping Aspen deliver greater insight into their business. They are now gaining complete visibility of their sales, manufacturing and inventory. They now know what’s in stock, where, and combined with incoming and predicted orders they can make cost-efficient manufacturing decisions that ensure they always have the right products in the right place. By integrating key business processes through a single digital solution they are now eliminating paperwork and dramatically reducing the risk of human error. With a simple cloud-based roll out (SAP Cloud ERP) that enables rapid expansion across business units, and overseas sites, the project went live in 180 calendar days from launch meeting. Aspen Pumps now have a single source of truth for the business.
Phillips concluded,” In short, with SAP Business ByDesign, Aspen Pumps can pursue our growth strategies, whilst providing customers with the excellent service they have come to expect from us.”
