We have had a long-standing relationship with New Zealand’s largest company, Fonterra for over 20 years.
At the beginning of 2020, Fonterra was replacing the existing demand planning system and we were engaged by their Integrated Business Planning (IBP) team to provide change management, training, and documentation services for their SAP IBP implementation project.
Users of the current demand planning system were very proficient in their existing system, so it was essential we ensure their confidence in the new Cloud-based solution. The project began in early March 2020 and immediately faced challenges due to the impact of the global pandemic COVID19.
To ensure the project remained on track, we worked collaboratively with the IBP team to deliver a successful and sustainable change. Our solution included:
Because of the challenges of the pandemic, both the existing demand planning system and SAP IBP were maintained in parallel over a nine-month period. This ensured the IBP team had business confidence in the new demand models and forecast simulations.
The implementation of SAP IBP has had a significant impact on the efficacy of Fonterra’s integrated business planning and the sustainability of their supply chain. This project won SAP Best Run Award in Digital Supply Chain category...a tremendous finish to an incredible journey navigated through challenging covid times.
