Tata Communications, a digital ecosystem enabler that powers today’s fast-growing digital economy, worked with one of South East Asia’s leading manufacturing enterprise for a network transformation solution. The latter had grown over time, organic and inorganic growth, across multiple countries. This translated to many ERP systems with multiple supply chain and inventory systems leading to major inefficiencies.
Tata Communications partnered with the enterprise to create a solution, custom-built to address all the issues and delivered an award-winning solution. The objectives were clear – deliver intelligence, flexibility and single pane of glass to drive improved cost of ownership for the IT team. The proposed solution was based on an agile methodology with a modular approach that would suit today’s unpredictable and rapidly changing business conditions.
In manufacturing, visibility is critical: intimate knowledge of one’s supply chain and inventory levels leads to a greater ability to control costs, respond to customer demands and anticipate changes in business trends.
The manufacturer wanted to optimise the user experience so that regional ERPs could be merged into one central ERP system.
