Unipart Group, the global logistics, consulting and manufacturing organisation, is accelerating its transformation into an IT services-led business by transitioning to SAP’s business transformation-as-a-service, RISE with SAP.
In an evolution of its existing 21- year relationship with SAP, Unipart will deploy the SAP S/4HANA intelligent ERP system as part of RISE with SAP, while also strengthening its capability as a SAP Systems Integrator to help its own customers embrace cloud innovation.
Unipart hopes that by providing access to a single Digital Core platform delivering automated and simplified business processes, real-time data insights and near real-time sales and process visibility, RISE with SAP will give it the flexibility and bandwidth to scale its business, while also enabling it to expand its IT services offering beyond logistics and to a wider customer base.
Yiannis Levantis, Group Chief Information Officer at Unipart, said: “Reinvention is part of our DNA. As we look to shift our business model towards being an IT services company first, with deep expertise in logistics, manufacturing and supply chain, expanding our capabilities alongside SAP has been the next step to make this a reality.”
