io-consultants supports rose plastic with SAP implementation
Hergensweiler - 27.7.2015
rose plastic has been manufacturing and marketing innovative plastic packaging for more than 60 years and is one of the leading companies in the tool manufacturing industry in the world. As a specialist for all-purpose tubes, boxes, cassettes and customised solutions, rose plastic offers a broad product range that currently encompasses more than 3000 different packaging types.
Most importantly, everything comes from one source: from the initial idea, to design, prototype building and the final printed packaging. rose plastic employs 700 staff around the world, of which 350 are located at the company headquarters near Lake Constance in Germany. With further production plants in the USA, Brazil, China and India and various international sales offices, rose plastic has a strong manufacturing and sales network that provides a wide choice of products and services of consistent and reliable quality.
On account of the company's constant growth and its outdated ERP system, rose plastic decided to implement an SAP solution for its enterprise resource planning. The objective was to integrate all the major business units – sales, purchasing, construction, production, warehouse, shipping, quality management, finances, controlling, HR, IT, and production facilities technology – and manage the data within one single system.
io-consultants was commissioned with the management of the implementation process at the key user level and the coordination of the implementation partners. The company undertook all the project management duties such as stakeholder management and schedule, deadline and budget monitoring, and ensured the smooth organisation of the steering committee and project documentation.
After the successful implementation at the headquarters in Germany, the system is now being introduced to all other offices worldwide. The first rollouts have already been concluded. Further implementation processes are scheduled for completion by 2017.
