About the Project
Excellently Equipped with the Right Solution: MEGGLE Goes SAP
When summer is on its way and there isn’t a cloud in the sky, it’s the perfect time for a barbecue. What should not be forgotten in any case at a successful barbecue event? Right! The herb butter! As the absolute brand for herb butter in the German market, MEGGLE became an internationally renowned organization and belongs today to the largest producers of milk products and pharmaceutical lactose.
Such an intensive and successful company development brought the existing system landscape to its limits, resulting in a necessary group-wide standardization and modernization of the IT landscape. In order to realize this important step in its corporate development, MEGGLE decided to use itelligence AG.
The demand for a lot of MEGGLE products is subject to seasonal fluctuations. Moreover, a permanent supply of raw materials like milk and whey has to be channeled to the most marketable and profitable purpose, without generating greatlosses. That’s the reason why future sales forecasts and planning will be made with SAP APO.An integrated, cross-regional planning process facilitates the early identification of changes in demand. With an integrated alert management, MEGGLE can promptly respond to disruptions and deviations. Thus, processes in production plants as well as inventories can immediately be adapted to the changed situation.
The integrated specification management for food industry, designed to create raw material or product specifications, ensures compliance with supplier and customer specifications and, last but not least, legal provisions from the Food Information Regulation (FIR).
Everything Is Top Grade and on HANA
It was another strategic decision by MEGGLE to minimize risks in the IT operations and, at the same time, align data management in a future-oriented manner. This is why the complete SAP ERP landscape runs on SAP HANA. In doing so, MEGGLE has laid the foundation for replicating raw material and commodity flows in the form of information and value flows for real-time evaluation.
