Nurturing Animals with Nutrition Products from Processes

Using Consumer Products SAP S/4HANA® and SAP® BPC Manna Pro Products LLC, a manufacturer and marketer of animal nutrition and care products, deployed SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Planning and Consolidation to manage production, logistics, and financial processes, with support from Illumiti to optimize the software’s flexibility and scalability for future growth.

Before: Challenges and Opportunities

• Time-consuming, Microsoft Excel–based, price-planning model

• Difficulty in managing, maintaining, and updating pricing logic to revise prices by product and plant

• Lack of integrated master data, and maintenance of products and prices that are done by two separate groups

• Monthly price planning process initial state that took two weeks

Why SAP and Illumiti

• Partnership with Illumiti Inc. to significantly improve the annual budgeting and planning process using SAP BPC

• Ability to increase visibility into business aspects and to integrate business processes

• Flexibility and scalability of the software as the business continues to grow

• Understanding of the company goals and objectives combined with technical know-how associated with SAP S/4HANA and SAP BPC

• Opportunity to utilize the software across finance, materials management, sales and distribution, production planning, analytics, and embedded business planning and consolidation

After: Value-Driven Results

• Reduced product purchase prices, passing savings to consumers and integrated costs for price planning

• Eliminated offline management and maintenance, integrated central maintenance and flexible update of core and provisional master data, and eased change management with the use of flexible analysis

• Gained comprehensive budgeting accuracy with a multidimensional business planning tool to track planning variances

We’ve gained real-time visibility into our operations, avoided temporary shut downs with monthly physical inventories, and established a business platform with SAP S/4HANA and SAP BPC to integrate future acquisitions.
