Pepsi-Cola expands digital footprint
PCPPI, the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the Philippines, decided to subscribe to the advanced SAP Enterprise Management System—a software that enhances the operability of the company targeting weak points to make them more resilient to abrupt changes in the retail space. “This is reinforcing our digital transformation. We also launched our new e-commerce platform in October because we have big ambitions for our digital journey. I am happy that we did not meet any major business obstacles through these changes. It is exciting to realize the benefits from said systems. This is us finding new ways to deliver value and service,” said PCPPI president and chief executive Frederick Ong. SAP is among the market leader in enterprise management software, with 77 percent of the world’s transaction revenue touching a SAP system. The SAP technology allows the beverage firm to streamline its business operations and improve financial, operational management and enhanced customer experience. Using SAP, PCPPI has an end-to-end, up-to-date, single data platform to process information which is more efficient as data is translated into real-time insights and analytics. The system makes for sounder business decisions. Along the process, PCPPI integrated eight core business procedures and existing systems to create an end-to-end enterprise management tool. Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, the company was able to complete its nationwide roll-out this November, covering 18 Business Units in more than 100 locations. Through Fasttrack Solutions, a platinum partner of SAP in the Philippines, the project was initiated successfully and seamlessly. To formally close the SAP integration project, PCPPI, together with Fasttrack Solutions and SAP Philippines, held a virtual closing ceremony on Dec. 17, 2020. The event attended by all the leads from the three partner companies was meant to recognize its many men and women who participated to make the integration successful.
