Plaut Aktiengesellschaft Wins Major Project With Allied Domecq Of Worldwide Mysap.Com Implementation
Munich/Salzburg (ots) - Plaut Consulting, Inc., the U.S. branch of Plaut AG, listed on the "Neuer Market" in Frankfurt (SCN 918 703), has been selected by Allied Domecq PLC to implement SAP's mySAP.com software across all Allied Domecq subsidiaries within North America and Europe. Allied Domecq is the second largest premium spirits company in the world as well as a leading worldwide wine producer.
In these interrelated projects Plaut will exploit global data standards to support enhanced sales and marketing effectiveness and to improve profit visibility across all business channels within Allied Domecq's operations. The project includes the implementation of software modules for the administration, control and monitoring of finances as well as SCM Logistics, Material Management, Production Planning and Sales and Distribution. Further project responsibilities of the IT-management consulting company specialising in IT-services will be the development of SAP-Basis systems, the ABAP environment, Change Management for the adjustment of internal processes to platform changes, and user training.
"This is one of the largest global deals ever for Plaut Consulting," said Paul Shaughnessy, president and chief executive officer, Plaut North America. "I attribute our success to our continued commitment to SAP, and to our proven expertise in the consumer products sector, and more specifically, the Spirits and Wine industry."
The ongoing Winery implementation for the U.S. is expected to go live in the third quarter of 2001 with the Spirits group phase of the North American Plaut/Allied Domecq project kicking-off just as this first phase of the Allied Domecq implementation comes to a successful completion. The European portion of the project will be based in three countries: England, Scotland and Spain.
"Plaut was selected due to their experience in the Spirits and Wine industry and due to their specialisation in SAP implementations," said Graham Heatherington, global finance director for Allied Domecq PLC. "Plaut's global presence enables us to share best practices across the two projects and continents."
