Building Materials Group - one of the business units of Hong Leong Asia - has tapped on Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to design and deploy a new SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
"Given the aggressive pace and scale of developments in the construction industry across Asia, we needed to enable faster transactions to support our business growth. Ensuring a smooth transition to an integrated, robust and efficient ERP platform was critical to our success," said Daniel Teh, General Manager for IT at Hong Leong Asia Building Materials Group, in a press release.
In line, the company migrated to SAP ERP platform to better handle its increasing variety and volume of transactions. HPE Technology Consulting Service has designed an infrastructure solution consisting of HPE Integrity rx2800 i4 Servers, HPE ProLiant DL380p Gen8 Servers and HPE 3PAR StoreServ 7200 Storage. HPE also deployed its StoreOnce 2700 systems to create a "robust" disaster recovery solution.
"HPE offered a complete and cohesive solution with servers, storage and disaster recovery capabilities. The Technology Consulting Services team planned and executed the migration perfectly. This helped us deliver faster realisation of business outcomes while ensuring minimal impact to our operations."
HPE said the new platform helps the Building Materials Group better manage its finance, sales and distribution, material management, production planning and project systems. The ERP has also reduced the transaction completion time from days to a matter of hours.
Besides that, HPE added the new system offer single view on business critical information to eliminate unnecessary data duplication thus improve the accuracy and reliability of data. This enables operations managers, plant managers and management to act immediately and accelerate their decisions, HPE said.
