Authorized SAP reseller The Information Management Group has announced global rollouts of SAP Business One with the be.as manufacturing add-on at Alcan Packaging, with an initial scope of 22 facilities worldwide.
With 130 manufacturing sites in 31 countries throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe, Alcan Packaging is a world leader in packaging for the food, pharmaceuticals, medical, health and beauty, and tobacco industries. The company has selected The Information Management Group (IMG) as its global implementation partner for SAP Business One, SAP’s integrated business management offering for small and midsize enterprises.
Complemented by the be.as Corporation’s manufacturing add-on, SAP Business One is expected to provide Alcan Packaging with a low-cost manufacturing technology that can be quickly deployed at each location yet integrated with the SAP Business Suite.
As an industry leader, the company is continually evolving its manufacturing technologies and practices, optimizing its manufacturing footprint, and enhancing its procurement efficiencies. All of these processes must be aligned worldwide and SAP Business One enables that alignment with end-to-end business process visibility at a quarter of the cost of a traditional business management and manufacturing solution, noted Massimo Spada, vice president of IT at Alcan Packaging.
Alcan Packaging, be.as and IMG developed a global blueprint that addresses all business requirements of the packaging firm’s manufacturing, inventory, logistics and financials. Alcan Packaging and subsidiaries in 20 countries have already tested blueprint tasks and functions and signed validations. These validations give IMG the green light to execute on Alcan Packaging pilots on Italy and China.
As Alcan Packaging has multiple sites in many countries, it is projected that up to 40 implementations of SAP Business One will be rolled out in the coming months.
