Carlsberg plans Euro-wide consolidation of SAP systems with Accenture

The implementation is expected to be completed during 2015

Carlsberg, one of the world's leading brewery groups, has selected Accenture to consolidate its SAP systems across its European operations into one single platform.

It is hoped that the implementation will be completed during 2015, but terms of the three year contract were not disclosed.

The new single solution will replace a series of stand-alone systems currently operating in the region and will underpin Carlsberg's sales, finance, production, logistics, procurement and planning functions.

Carlsberg is currently undergoing a 'Business Standardisation Programme' and supply chain integration, which it hopes will improve its capabilities, customer service and efficiency, increase speed and deliver an improved return on its investments.

This is the third deal that Carlsberg has struck with Accenture in recent years to carry out the delivery of applications services and SAP implementations.

"Carlsberg's program of standardisation and supply chain integration with its quest for greater efficiencies, and increased agility in order to capture growth opportunities, is characteristic of high performers in the consumer goods sector," said Henrik Rasmussen, a managing director in Accenture's Consumer Goods & Services practice.

"The standardised solution that we intend to deliver will support Carlsberg to launch new products faster and enhance its customer service experience."

In other news, it was announced yesterday that enterprise software giant SAP will acquire e-commerce player hybris in an attempt to further expand its reach into the 'consumer economy'.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
