Cemex has achieved record time integration of its new global IT system based on Germany-based SAP’s business management software.
The new SAP system, replacing the previous JD Edwards software platform, is said by the leading Mexican headquartered materials firm to be the best technology available to handle an “increasingly complex operating environment”.
The company believe it will lead to a faster and better response to customers’ requirements and expectations.
“This new platform provides real-time data from all critical processes and functions, helping us to integrate our core cement, ready-mix and aggregates businesses into a single solution that serves our customers with greater speed, precision, and quality” said Lorenzo H. Zambrano, chief executive of Cemex.
Fernando González, executive vice-president of Cemex finance and administration, added: “Achieving a global migration of this size in just 18 months is a significant milestone that shows our commitment to constant improvement.”
For the deployment of its new IT system Cemex was supported by Neoris, its global business and IT consulting firm, which is a SAP Global Services Partner.
