Business Analysis Consulting
A leading international food manufacturer was facing increasing operational complexity and greater difficulty in making operational and strategic decisions based on timely and accurate information. Despite having invested in a suitable ERP solution, Oracle JD Edwards, the company was not using it to its full potential. The company’s ROI for the ERP investment was low after several years and the business continued to miss opportunities for value creation. Ultimately The ERP was failing to meet leadership’s vision for the company and changing business demands.
The company identified 3 critical business issues:
- Poor visibility of accurate finished goods inventory levels.
Not knowing how much meat was ready to sell affected sales planning and forecasting. Stock levels were stored differently in different locations, across a multitude of data sheets, the ERP and various third party systems.
- No consolidated view of financial information.
Disparate financial systems were not integrated, leading to extensive manual data entry, duplicate data entry and regular data inaccuracies.
- Inadequate IT infrastructure and managed services.
Day-to-day operational activities were being affected by obsolete data centre hardware and systems. Due to business and data growth, the infrastructure demand was split into various stagnated devices, which could not scale. A lack of training and several failed IT vendor engagements left the in-house IT team exhausted and piled with support issues.
