PZ Cussons Challenge

PZC was 6 months from their final go-live on a 3 year Global SAP implementation. They wanted reassurance that their SAP support model was fit for purpose and would meet the business demands.

Resulting Solution

Resulting led a program of activity for Technical and Service Readiness. This was an exhaustive review of all the key components of their Service Model, including key capability areas, processes and tasks. The project involved identifying any service gaps and managing a prioritised list of focus areas. For each area, development, change or confirmation of the process and procedures was undertaken. This involved providing technical insight, guidance on contractual changes and updates to ways of working including the relationships between service providers.
