BayanTrade, the leading SAP channel partner in the Philippines, today announced that Philippine Sinter Corporation (PSC), one of the world’s largest steel makers in the country, has implemented the BT Jumpstart solution, based on the SAP® ERP application, to streamline operations and improve productivity. With this implementation, PSC has integrated all business processes under a single platform, enabling immediate access to accurate business and operational data for critical decision-making.
BT Jumpstart is a complete business solution for the manufacturing industry which covers key business processes enabling transparency of transactions, seamless integration of functionalities, and real-time reporting. It is designed to meet the needs of midsized companies to maximize cash flow, track resources, minimize rework by meeting quality standards, improve customer satisfaction, and provide real-time data and performance measurement. BT Jumpstart banks on the expertise of BayanTrade, leveraging on SAP best practices and experience in consulting for manufacturing companies. In just four months, companies can run a world-class software used by more than 100,000 companies globally.
Faced with growing business complexity and increasing competitive pressures amidst challenging times, Edison Sasoy, Head of IT, PSC, saw that their legacy system, which handled basic tasks such as cost monitoring and inventory, would not suffice since it has no operational integration so he roped in SAP and partner BayanTrade.
“We chose to work with SAP and BayanTrade because we believe they have the most appropriate industry solution for our organisation’s needs,” said Sasoy.
“The SAP-based solution, BT Jumpstart, is preconfigured to meet our industry requirements and can be easily managed by our team after implementation. SAP and BayanTrade also met our stringent requirements like business process standards, solution qualifications and support availability.”
Although the solution has only recently gone live, PSC is already seeing the implementation bear fruit, with their hectic month-end financial closing activities shortened from three weeks to less than one week. The business process integration has also allowed the company to proactively analyse relevant information and make timely, well-informed decisions based on that data.
“With the implementation of a qualified SAP solution like BT Jumpstart, we will transform PSC’s IT landscape into one that drives productivity and efficiency for them,” said Jennie Ligones, Country Manager, SAP Philippines. “This, in turn, will enable the company to run better and achieve profitable growth.”
