Grupo Schettino has been producing high-quality food since 1957. By far the largest rice producer in Mexico, it supplies supermarket chains and wholesalers. 300 million dollars in sales are generated by the company year after year.
But not even for successful food producers does time stand still. Schettino struggled with enormous expenditures and a lack of transparency. Manually controlling the large corporation caused redundant data and unnecessary additional costs. The Mexican company found a way out by consistently digitalizing all business processes.
In T-Systems, Grupo Schettino found the perfect partner to make the leap into real-time business and to tackle the transformation to SAP S/4HANA. By implementing SAP Best Practices, including those for procurement, production planning, sales, quality, plant maintenance, and finance, the food retailer was able to standardize and radically simplify its business processes. Now the group benefits from real-time data, enabling it to make better decisions more quickly in day-to-day business. In addition, a user-friendly interface ensures significantly simplified, intuitive usability – with SAP Fiori® apps. And all this with enormous cost savings.
By moving our business processes to SAP S/4HANA, we can now make decisions based on real-time data quicker and better instead of continuing to be dependent on hypotheses. T-Systems guided us perfectly through the changeover process with its individual roadmap.
Transparency and efficiency were the two key qualities that Grupo Schettino was missing in its operations. To change this, the food producer wanted to replace its outdated, cost-intensive IT systems with a new ERP system. In addition, local functionalities such as electronic invoicing were to be integrated to make it optimally exploitable for the Mexican market leader. Mobile access options were also important to the managers. The implementation of an internal change management process was another requirement
Together with Grupo Schettino, T-Systems developed an individual transformation roadmap. The digitalization and simplification of all business processes was achieved by switching to the next generation of the SAP Business Suite, SAP S/4HANA. T-Systems guarantees Grupo Schettino a risk-free end-to-end transformation. The Group's business processes are being standardized and optimized with the help of SAP Best Practices. This enables Grupo Schettino to identify and sort out duplicate customer records. SAP Fiori® now ensures significantly simpler and intuitive usability for all employees.
