Story

Project background and reasons for selecting ABeam Consulting

Confidence in total solutions that are promptly proposed

 Tipco F&B Co., Ltd. is a beverage manufacturer that was established in Bangkok in 1989. In April 2016, Tipco F&B began considering replacement of its 20 years old enterprise system, in anticipation of further growth. Mr. Ekaphol Pongstabhon, Managing Director of Tipco Foods PCL, says: “The existing system was easy to use for our on-site staff, but we decided to replace it to achieve steep growth in the future.”
 Tipco F&B selected ABeam Consulting as its partner. They had a high opinion of that company’s proposal, which met all of its requirements in the aspects of budget, solutions, and delivery date, thanks to system construction with ABeam Cloud running on AWS. This is an innovation platform enabling SaaS use of an SAP solution template designed for the food and beverage industry. ABeam Cloud is a total solution service consisting of business applications and the service applications supporting them, infrastructural services, security & monitoring, global networking and the related operation and maintenance. Ms. Kanjana Warotamaporn, Vice President of Charge of Information Technology, Tipco F&B, offered the following remark: “We also had a high rating of ABeam Consulting’s abilities for swift action and proposal.”

Story

Challenges and the solutions

Revision of the business process for alignment with best practice

 The project called for reconstruction of each sub-system in the areas of accounting, sales, purchasing and logistics within the extremely short period of May 2016 to February 2017. ABeam Consulting aimed at putting the system into stable operation within this short time by making use of ABeam Cloud and the template. In some cases, the user operating procedures had to be changed for correspondence with the template and this made some users uneasy. Nevertheless, significant disruption was avoided by careful explanation of the need for use of the template. The team was able to complete the project within a short time as planned because of the active involvement of Tipco F&B’s CEO/CFO who is also its CIO.
 The system of ABeam Consulting was also reinforced. Tipco F&B was apprehensive about the ability to receive operating support in a timely manner, as ABeam Cloud’s Center of Excellence team was in Japan. Then, ABeam Consulting built a solid support system from its global organization inclusive of Japan. “The members of the ABeam Consulting used milestones and checklists as they promoted the project. This was a great help.” (Kanjana)

Users at four locations including Tipco F&B’s head office have likewise adapted to the new system and are expected to tackle their work more efficiently with it, in the future. “We will presumably encounter all sorts of issues, but I am sure we will be able to resolve them together with ABeam Consulting,” concluded Ekaphol.
