IESA Go-Live on SAP S/4HANA with itelligence UK.

Published on

London, 17th May 2019 – itelligence UK announced today that IESA is live on SAP S/4HANA 1809 with the itelligence Conversion Factory.

IESA provides a full range of outsourced procurement services via a technology platform developed specifically to meet the challenges of manufacturing, assembly and processing operations. In order to maintain IESA’s market leading position and support their growth aspirations, it was essential for the organisation to invest in a modern SAP Platform that had the agility to meet customer demands on a global scale.

The technical conversion project took only 22 weeks to complete and successfully transitioned 15 years of data and 1800 custom objects. The project was delivered on time and under budget due to the close collaboration between IESA, itelligence UK and the itelligence offshore Conversion Factory.

Hana Robertson, Head of Digital, IESA commented, “Working with itelligence has enabled us to move to S/4HANA safely, quickly and with minimum disruption to the business and our client base. Thanks to itelligence’s efforts over the Technical Conversion phase of the project, we have achieved a near flawless transition within a very tight window.”

With the technical conversion complete, IESA will now look to realise quick wins for the business by introducing real-time analytics, Fiori UX improvements and implement business process re-engineering to bring important processes into SAP in order to drive additional benefits.

Justin Brading, SVP & MD for itelligence UK&I commented: “Our factory-model to S/4HANA conversion makes it very straightforward to get onto the new SAP platform. Our conversion package is fast, low risk and proven. Additionally, our hybrid approach has been well received by our customers who benefit from local S/4 Consultants on site who liaise with our offshore conversion factory. Ultimately, the model has been designed to bring together global experience, method, process and tools for a low-friction approach to S/4HANA.”

Justin continued, “We look forward to partnering with IESA on the next phase of the project as we evolve their living roadmap to deliver exciting and game-changing innovations around real-time MRP Procurement and Billing.”
