SAP Digital Supply Chain Consulting - Kerry Foods

SAP Digital Supply Chain Consulting - Kerry Foods

We worked with Kerry Foods, a leading organisation in the consumer packaged goods industry, to build a business case and software roadmap for an SAP digital supply chain.

The Challenge

Consumer foods business, Kerry Foods, engaged with Rocket to help them define how SAP Extended Warehouse Management could help deliver against their overall long-term business strategy, and improve their business across warehousing, production/manufacturing, traceability and compliance.

The Solution

By following Rockets evaluation approach, Kerry Foods’ strategic objectives (business, operational and IT), key functional requirements and pain points were considered, from which an evaluation study was produced. The study provided concise executive level information to support an investment business case, as well as detailed process-level information to give a high degree of confidence on how the business objectives would be met and provide a suitable future way of working.

Technical content demonstrated how a transition from the current software landscape can be transformed across all 25 sites in the UK and Ireland.

Business Outcomes

  • Clearly defined business benefits and capability aligned to company strategy.
  • Detailed business case allowing a confident, well-informed investment decision.
  • Demonstrated how a single SAP EWM platform can support all warehousing, food production, traceability & compliance needs.

"Kerry Foods engaged with Rocket Consulting in 2018 to undertake a piece of gap analysis work between an existing WMS application and the SAP EWM equivalent. We also threw in the added complication of a requirement for an end to end traceability solution to be included. The Rocket team took this in their stride and embraced the challenge.

"There were a number of site visits co-ordinated to complete the work and the team who worked on site were very professional in their approach and output.

"The resulting feedback information was very thorough and sufficient in detail to allow executive-level decisions to be made within the business.

"The level of knowledge and expertise across the team was exceptional, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rocket to other businesses looking to enhance or upgrade applications in the manufacturing or warehouse management sectors."
