Grupo Schettino: greater efficiency with SAP S/4HANA

T-Systems supported Grupo Schettino during the transformation to SAP S/4HANA

Radical simplification of business processes

Schettino Group logo

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.

Benefits for the customer

  • Radical simplification of business processes and continuous integration into the SAP landscape
  • Real-time data enables quicker, better decisions and thus real-time business (in-memory technology)
  • User-friendly interface enables intuitive operation
  • Maximum transparency of all business decisions through ad-hoc evaluations

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.

New ERP system for more transparency and efficiency

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 To change this, the food producer wanted to replace its outdated, cost-intensive IT systems with a new ERP system.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

The challenge

  • To replace outdated and cost-intensive IT systems such as isolated legacy solutions and create transparency through a uniform, integrated, and networked platform across all areas of the company and with mobile access options
  • Digitalization of production processes and operational procedures as well as transformation to SAP S/4HANA
  • Adaptation of local functionalities such as electronic invoicing in SAP S/4HANA
  • Elimination of redundant data sets and manual effort and implementation of an internal change management process
