SAP Syclo Inventory Manager RDS Implementation for a Leading Global Chemicals Company with Motorola MC9090 Rugged Handheld Devices.

Background

Our client provides specialty chemicals and has operations in three continents, with over 25 plants and 75+ warehouses and was looking to replace their inefficient paper based processes and implement a mobile solution to improve productivity of their entire supply chain workforce. Our client’s operations are extremely asset intensive and require substantial MRO inventories to keep their equipment up and running. In addition, the company was struggling with an inefficient process to maintain accurate inventory levels, and also meet customer order fulfillment from their 75+ warehouses.

Given the manual and inefficient processes to maintain accurate inventory levels, and lack of visibility into up to date stock information, our client was looking for a mobile solution which would require minimal manual intervention and faster turnaround times to view or process critical inventory information.

Innovapptive Solution

Innovapptive proposed to implement the SAP Syclo Inventory Manager Mobile solution Innovapptive’s leveraged its SAP qualified Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) and conducted a thorough requirement gathering and GAP analysis to implement the SAP Syclo Inventory Manager App. The pre-configured Rapid Deployment Solutions (RDS) was an attractive option to the customer as it is a defined time, defined cost and defined scope putting processes to work in a much clearer position. The Innovapptive RDS is delivered with supported guides, educational material and training of the Syclo/SAP Inventory Manager app to enable end-user easy adoption into the new system. Our team installed the SAP Agentry platform and customized the SAP Inventory Manager mobile application to meet customer requirements in less than 9 weeks.

As a result of this mobile solution implementation, our customer was able to easily maintain up to date stock levels, enable their field personnel to easily locate parts, tools and material they need, thereby dramatically reducing any inherent delay of operations.

In less than 3 weeks of the roll out, the customer had the ability to immediately improve visibility across the value chain, thereby tightening their supply chain and reduce inventory carrying costs which drastically reduced any service delays and prolonged outages and failures.
