Based on its corporate message of “Enriching lives, in harmony with nature,” Kao Corporation continues to provide high value-added products and services for both consumers and business customers. Previously, each company base-located in Japan, Europe and the U.S., and Asia-managed its item masters separately; in order to strengthen its global business, Kao has now established a cloud-based, centralized system of master management.
“ The establishment of a globally centralized item master through SAP MDG enables us to minimize implementation timeframes for new systems globally, and provides benefits such as reductions in cost and operational workloads.”
