SAP Business Planning and Consolidation

SAP is implemented throughout global operations
19
Why SAP BPC?
Simplify planning and reduce budgeting cycle-time

Overhead planning had been undertaken on a
multitude of spreadsheets, all different at each of
the sites, and with multiple versions in circulation.

The initial pilot introduced the planning side of SAP
BPC with Overhead Planning

20
Why SAP BPC?
Megger then implemented Consolidation in SAP
BPC in order to meet two real objectives:
to move away from the current consolidation platform
to introduce the robust platform as a method of improving
control around the consolidation, and provide a more
flexible platform for the group.

The planning platform scope was expanded further
in 2014 for the 2015 planning round to encompass
the planning of trade revenues by country, source
manufacturing site.
21
Approach to Implementation
SAP BPC was delivered by Ciber in only 20 days

The project implemented Ciber's cost centre based
overhead planning model

The accelerated implementation was due to the
capability to deploy and adapt Ciber's self-
contained planning models

Knowledge transfer and support
