Single entry point for corporate data for customer service, financial accounting, and supply chain management

SPLAT group is the leading European manufacturer of toothpaste, other oral hygiene products, cosmetics, and household chemistry. The company has over 2000 employees, offices throughout Europe and Asia-Pacific and occupies about 18% of the market.

At SPLAT, the management team faced a problem of collecting and managing business-critical data across all company's offices in multiple countries. Business processes in each country were different, poorly automated, which led to data discrepancies, the high volume of manual labor, errors, lack of transparency.

The project's main goal was the development of an IT system that will solve the following tasks:

Shift inefficient and dispersed business processes to a unified flow implemented in the headquarters
Integrate these new business processes with the IT systems implemented in the main office
Fully automate all functional and organizational perimeter of the companies within the Splat group
Make the business processes transparent and manageable
Fuel the creation of the consolidated service center covering the entire Europe and the Asia-Pacific region
Allow implementing an internal control system for the entire group, including financial management and cost control tools

During the implementation, the following business processes were automated:

Sales Planning

Sales Management

Procurement

Warehouse Management

Treasury

Receivables Management

Financial Reporting

Expense Requests Control System

The accounting system for the SPLAT group's international branches was designed on the basis of the 1C:Drive configuration. The implementation project was divided into 4 stages.

The first one included the collection of business requirements and specifications design for each functional block. Next, the business processes modeling was conducted to design the specifications of the technical requirements. The third stage was dedicated to the system's development and testing. The final phase included employee training and running a pilot project with real business data involved. The overall project length was 9 months, 30 seats automated.

Customer success

"In just less than a year, we were able to create a consolidated service center covering the entire Europe and Asia Pacific regions, introduce financial control solution, and build unified business processes across branches both for the home region of CIS, Europe, and Asia-Pacific."
