Technology outsourcing firm Accenture has been selected by H.B. Fuller, a global adhesives company, to implement global enterprise resources planning (ERP) solution based on SAP ERP application.
Under the three-year agreement, Accenture will implement SAP ERP across H.B. Fuller’s operations in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. It will help improve H.B. Fuller’s operations in areas such as finance and control, materials management, inventory and warehouse management, quality management, sales and distribution, production planning, environmental health and safety, and business intelligence.
The solution will provide H.B. Fuller with an enhanced, real-time view of common processes across the organization, the company said. This will offer a more competitive position for the company in the marketplace and a more efficient and agile organization that is based on data-driven decision making and is better positioned to integrate future acquisitions.
The ERP implementation is also expected to provide better customer insights and increase its ability to deliver differentiated customer offerings.
Accenture generated net revenues of US$28.6 billion for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2013. The company is on acquisition spree. In November Accenture announced it will buy industrial and embedded software development and services business of evopro group, as well as the product lifecycle management (PLM) software firm PCO Innovation.
