Centralizing business unit processes on a single, secure platform
While searching for a new solution, Hebei Zhonghongji discovered SAP S/4HANA Cloud, which it thought was versatile enough to allow it to effectively monitor all consumption, financial, and business operations in each of its units.
Hebei Zhonghongji is using SAP S/4HANA Cloud to transform its methods of internal management and standardize processes. This has effectively allowed the company to transition from a store management model to a highly focused line-of-business model, which allows it to have greater control and knowledge of its overall business practices.
The solution’s production planning module proved especially useful as it instructed Hebei Zhonghongji through every step of optimizing its BOM and standardizing its processes, all the while providing a flexible management system for each unit’s kitchens, which reduced costs and waste. Additionally, the solution’s flexibility and security allowed the company to increase the efficiency of its stock reporting and reconciliation.
The company also enlisted the help of SAP Enterprise Support services, which guided the managerial team in transitioning business processes to the cloud through instructional sessions with cloud experts. Additionally, the team at Chiefoods Technology, an SAP partner, lent its catering expertise, allowing the company to implement lean management principles into its resource handling, thereby further reducing costs.
