ERP System Design and Implementation

Assignment

PepsiCo asked Leading Resolutions to design and implement a strategy for the architecture, design and implementation of an internally hosted ERP system. An improved IT and communications infrastructure would support further growth in manufacturing and changes to the distribution process.

Approach

Leading Resolutions’ strategy for the ERP system incorporated a secure web-enabled business layer front-end, accessible over an integrated corporate-wide telecommunications infrastructure. This was achieved through the design and implementation of a centralised European data centre, outsourced telecommunications infrastructure and newly implemented service delivery and management processes.

Results

Leading Resolutions enabled the seamless introduction of new technologies directly into the day to day standards. PepsiCo achieved a single view of demand planning, purchasing and stock management. The deployment drove reduced operating costs and staffing levels, increased accuracy of order fulfilment and improved customer service levels.

Leading Resolutions turned what was a complex challenge into a simple, easy to understand strategy that led to a flawless implementation – a testament to their experience and detailed understanding of our business.
