"By moving our business processes to SAP S/4HANA, we can now make decisions quicker and better on the basis of real-time data instead of still having to rely on hypotheses. T-Systems guided us perfectly through the switchover with its customized roadmap."
Roberto Cortes, CFO at Grupo Schettino
Why Grupo Schettino sets store by digitalization of business processes
Grupo Schettino, a food company with a long and rich tradition, is creating a new setup for itself. The Mexican company is taking the plunge into a digital future with SAP S/4HANA. The results are impressive.
Grupo Schettino has produced high-quality foods since 1957. It is by far the largest rice producer in Mexico and supplies supermarket chains and wholesalers. The company generates annual revenue of 300 million US dollars.
Yet time does not stand still for successful food producers, either. Schettino had to contend with huge expenditures and a lack of transparency. Manual controlling of the large group entailed redundant data and unnecessary extra costs. The Mexican company saw the remedy to that in uncompromisingly digitalizing all business processes.
Grupo Schettino found the perfect partner to take the plunge into real-time business and tackle transformation to SAP S/4HANA: T-Systems. By rolling out SAP best practices, such as for procurement, production planning, sales, quality, plant maintenance and finance, the food retailer was able to standardize its business processes and so radically simplify them. The group now benefits from real-time data, enabling it to make faster and better decisions in everyday business. A user-friendly interface also ensures far simpler, intuitive usability – with SAP Fiori® apps. And with huge cost savings on top.
