ROLL-OUT MODEL FOR OVERSEAS BUSINESS BRANCHES

OPPORTUNITES AND CHALLENGES

Orientated towards internationalization, System operates in 26 countries worldwide with 30 subsidiary companies. The overseas commercial branches are located strategically in major market areas: giving sales support, advice and assistance as well as customer care. Hence the need to define and implement a roll-out model for overseas companies to adapt to different tax and accounting needs. Having a single information system supporting the organization is indispensable for maintaining a high level of competitiveness, integration and control.

AIMS

Over the past decade System, the leading company in the automation of plants for the ceramics industry, has made several acquisitions and opened subsidiaries worldwide in order to expand its offer. All the major world markets have a System branch which guarantees assistance and consultancy, thanks to its know-how transmitted from headquarters which is where the centre for Research and Development is.

WHY SAP AND FORE

The need to manage increasingly more complex processes, in terms of functionality to cover ever more structured organizational processes, led us to choose partners not only competent but constructive and proactive. That is why SAP and FORE represent the ideal combination to meet our expectations, allowing us to maintain and if necessary expand the focus on business processes, both consolidated and new.

KEY POINTS AND IMPLEMENTATION

The model takes into account the needs of individual companies both production and commercial, and is basically divided into two main areas: - Management of Highly Standardized Logistics Processes for all branches - Management of Specific Accounting aspects for each location.

BENEFITS

The model ensures uniformity in all of the company's processes:
Administrative, Decision Making, Logistics, Control, and Simplification of support activities that are managed directly from Headquarters.
