Case Study – SAP Fiori Appbuilder
How Smartdata digitalized the sales order process with Fiori
Allied Pinnacle needed one simple, mobile-enabled sales order processing solution that consolidated and improved the sales ordering process. Within 4 weeks the SAP Fiori AppBuilder workflow replaced the existing paper process and accelerated the sales order entry process while also improving overall process control. There are now four easy steps to process a sales order, all built in the one intuitive Fiori App.
Allied Pinnacle is the result of the merging of Allied Mills and Pinnacle Bakery and Integrated Ingredients.
Allied Mills is recognized as one of Australia’s largest manufacturers and distributors of bakery premixes, flour and semi-finished products. Pinnacle Bakery & Integrated Ingredients produces high quality specialty baked goods and key technology based ingredients.
The two entities needed one simple, mobile-enabled sales order processing solution that consolidated and improved the sales ordering process which presented the following challenges.
A mobile ready Fiori app was built to replace the existing paper process in 4 weeks. This provided credit status, stock availability, order history and real time pricing. The true digital transformation came when customers were empowered to place their own orders through the same Fiori app.
Allied Pinnacle achieved:
The Allied Pinnacle SAP system was an older ECC6 (EP4) environment with no immediate plans to move to S/4 HANA. However, through SAPs web based FIORI platform Allied Pinnacle investigated how they could develop a mobile-enabled solution that had access to all the SAP customer, material and sales order data.
“We learnt that we can leverage the power of Fiori while remaining with ECC6, however it was the Fiori AppBuilder that allowed us to get there fast and waste no time in keeping our sales teams engaged, inspired and delivering their jobs, which like any business we rely on,” said Stephen.
