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'.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
