    The Initial Situation

    The main objective was the international harmonization and standardization of end-to-end processes to enable efficient growth and furthermore to build a foundation for existing and future digital business opportunities of ELOPAK.One important element to streamline the administrative processes was to establish the principal toller agent model. The Principal hereby owns the goods and these are sold through a central sales department. This model simplifies the administration of the flow of goods since the owner does not change when the goods are moved to a different production location.

    The Solution

    This SAP ERP implementation consist of a single company-wide business ad-ministration system. This set-up ensures that the internal administrative burden is reduced and that support functions can be centralized such as master data maintenance, accounts payable, forecasting and that company-wide activities such as reporting, treasury, HR can work from a single platform.

    Many tasks will disappear by using unambiguous Master Data and the enablement of intercompany transactions between the Principal and Toller. Internal invoicing and the manual enrichment of master data in different systems will therefore be omitted. In addition, there is the possibility of comparing production processes at product/factory level. This approach will eliminate the tasks that now ensure coordination between the various business units and the consolidation of information to the enterprise level.
