The complexity of a roll-out project with an international character is far higher than the one of a national implementation project. Global harmonisation, consolidation of core data and business processes, more efficient design of customer-related order fulfilment, group-comprehensive cross and intercompany processes or the setup of a central, consistent and comprehensive reporting system are just a few examples for the several challenges of an international roll-out project.
The requirement-conform solution of this challenge takes varied experiences and competences for granted:
is the competence to purposefully analyse processes at different locations, to identify optimisation potentials and to develop inter-site realisation concepts.
International and scalable solution
An innovative and reliable solution is needed which covers the national and international legal requirements and which is, through a high scalability, just as suitable for large sites and corporate headquarters as it is for smaller offices. With the application of SAP we offer you a business standard solution which copes with these challenges outstandingly.
The success of a roll-out project is mainly characterised by the competence of the roll-out partner, the use of well-tried roll-out methods and the availability of a competent, international support. Plaut provides long-term experience gained in numerous successful roll-out projects and a proven template-based roll-out method.
Requirement-conform approach to heterogeneity of expectations in the headquarter and the international offices
The approach of an international roll-out requires the analysis of very special, technical-organisational challenges in project work and of socio-emotional problems which occur through a change of structure and procedures for the concerned employees. The business culture of Plaut is medium-sized and international: an important basis for the success of your roll-out project.
