Première Moisson Rises to the Top and Implements SAP S/4HANA!
Createch is proud to announce that the SAP S/4HANA ERP implementation project is now live within Groupe Première Moisson (GPM), a leading artisan bakery and pastry as well as a deli.
Due to a growing demand and an increasing customer base, GPM required a reliable, robust and sustainable IT tool to support its future needs. The company used many in-house software solutions, as well as a SAP solution (Business One), but the latter was reaching its limit given GPM’s growth prospects. Thus, it seemed quite natural for GPM to turn to SAP S/4HANA and Fiori technology, the state-of-the-art solution also supported by METRO, which holds a majority stake in GPM. It is therefore this ERP, at the heart of the SAP publisher's strategy, that was chosen to be implemented within the company.
For GPM, the implementation of S/4HANA was a core project intended to improve its financial, logistical, and manufacturing processes. This consisted in building a strong foundation within the company by providing the critical technology tools for long-term growth. S/4HANA thus allows to maximize the industrial stringency regarding the business methods of GPM, while allowing the company to preserve its artisanal flavour, which creates the essence of its brand and contributes to its fame. In this respect, the chosen solution enables all the business processes of its three production sites to be carried out on SAP S/4HANA, which allows GPM to have a global view of its results.
GPM relied on the project management experience and expertise of Createch's functional and technical teams, who have put in place their required methodology for the success of the project. Createch is also the firm with the most experience in converting and implementing SAP S/4HANA solutions in Quebec.
Createch consultants and the people at GPM worked together throughout this important transformation project that was delivered on time (36 weeks) and on budget. After only a few weeks of operation, the first benefits have already come to fruition and GPM now owns S/4HANA, an ERP system capable of sustaining its growth for years to come.
« I would like to thank the experts from Createch, who played a key role throughout this project, which was essential to achieve the level of efficiency we are aiming for, and to support the company's next phases of growth. Their abilities and analytical skills, as well as their passion, give us a solution that responds to the peculiarities of our current reality »
