VC ERP Consulting : Bolstering Organization's SAP Transformation Journey

CIO Vendor Business strategies today have evolved into a set of ideas that not only help organizations to envision the future of their enterprise but also the best way to reach that future. However, in order to ensure that the desired destination is reached, they are faced with the need to continuously monitor and improve this strategy as it progresses. SAP is perhaps the best known enterprise management software that can effectively support this entire process from the boardroom until the completion of the project cycle. Assisting businesses globally with a vision to help the world run better and improve people’s lives, SAP has grown to be a market leader in enterprise application software, resolving the most pressing challenges from strategy to execution.

It is thus a proven fact that SAP has the potential to bring productivity to any business management process. However, despite its unmatched ability to bring greater productivity to different business processes, the flexibility of SAP’s functionalities can create unexpected organizational challenges that need to be carefully managed during the different stages of design and implementation of SAP. Be it in the configuration, integration of different applications, cost savings, or choosing the correct road-map, SAP projects can fail on multiple fronts and therefore present organizations with the need for an implementation partner that can provide them with consistent hand-holding and guidance throughout this journey of transformation. Moreover, it is also imperative for SAP partners to gain an in-depth understanding of an organization’s business and accordingly calibrate SAP’s best practices to align with their customers’ business process requisites.

Perfectly understanding these challenges and demands, Ahmedabad headquartered VC ERP Consulting steps forward to address them with a comprehensive portfolio of SAP offerings and best-practice enterprise solutions, to help large-medium and small enterprises enhance their business productivity.

Since its inception in 2001, VC ERP, a SAP Gold Partner, has been focused on helping small and medium-sized organizations achieve their desired business goals with SAP’s best practice solutions. With an objective to ‘consistently plan, execute and deliver high quality services and results, the company leverages over 20 years of expertise in SAP to build and implement the best of SAP solutions for its customers. VC ERP accomplishes this with the help of its adept technical-functional management team of around 200 SAP consultants, who provide competency in the areas of implementations, business process re-engineering, upgrade technologies, integration with third party systems, business warehousing, portal development, staff augmentation, module training and optimizing of supply chains. “VC ERP leverages its deep understanding of customer challenges, change management and complex business processes to assist clients at every stage of project implementation. Our implementation team helps them overcome these challenges through building customized solutions to simplify different processes, providing them with handling training and various other workshops,” explains Vijay Chhabra, Managing Director, VC ERP Consulting.

Speaking further on the company’s USP, he goes on to elaborate, “Our SAP Professional team with a combined experience of 50 years in SAP Implementations has carried out over a 100 projects across different industry verticals, making them a strong contender for SAP Solutions Implementation, Development and Consulting.

VC ERP’s expansive portfolio of offerings includes SAP solutions such as SAP S/4 HANA, SAP Business One, SAP Cloud, SAP Basis, SAP UX, SAP NetWeaver Technologies and SAP Mobile Solutions, Software Services and a host of other products such as Distribution Management System, Point of Sale, Customer Relationship Management, Sales Force Automation, V-Shoppe Magento Portal, Vendor Management Portal and Employee Management Systems.

Enabling transition into SAP HANA platform
When it comes to SAP Implementations, VC ERP brings in implementation experience for both large enterprises and SMEs across a number of different platforms such as SAP HANA, SAP BI, and SAP Fiori etc. At the forefront of these platforms is the SAP S/4HANA business suite which has been reinventing business models and offering lower cost of maintenance over the years. According to a survey projected by Forrester, the SAP S/4HANA Solution has the ability to deliver over 30 percent better ROI compared to SAP running on traditional infrastructure. By transitioning applications into the SAP HANA platform, customers can achieve cost savings and reduce the need for a variety of associated hardware and software, thus acquiring greater efficiencies within their organization. However, while SAP HANA has the potential to bring these benefits, the implementation of this framework can often be inhibited by factors such as high costs of deployment, resource constraints, skills deficiency and risks of business disruption.

Acknowledging these challenges, VC ERP provides its customers with expert support from its professional team to help them utilize and deploy SAP S/4HANA on their chosen platform without any interruption or difficulties. Furthermore, VC ERP also understands that most customers start their journey to a Digital Core from different places and therefore provides them with a distinct path, complete with distinct services and tools, to help them achieve their goals with the least disruption. This includes the preparation of an inclusive pre-implementation study that involves determining the right strategies prior to the actual process and creating a roadmap to ensure the alignment of the SAP HANA suite with specific business processes. The company then offers end-to-end implementation services with migration options for on-premise, public and private cloud platforms, thereby simplifying the entire SAP Solution landscape for clients. “At VC ERP, we provide customers with the latest,
most robust technological solutions built on HANA, to help them run their processes faster with simplified data models, real-time analytics, and an enhanced user experience and thereby transform their business,” affirms Vijay. Today, VC ERP stands as one of the fastest growing partners for SAP S/4 HANA in India, and is rapidly expanding its S/4 HANA practices in the Indian and International market. The company is also engaged in S/4 HANA implementation projects across core industries such as Mining, Power, Steel Manufacturing and Textile.

Facilitating Smart and Intelligent Enterprise Management through SAP Business One
SAP Business One today has emerged as an affordable, easy-touse business management solution designed specifically for growing small to mid-sized businesses and subsidiaries. From financial and accounting to inventory and customer relationship management (CRM), this framework encompasses all the key business areas which are integrated to provide clear visibility into the entire business. Moreover, by capturing data into a single centralized location, the SAP Business One platform allows organizations access to critical real-time information to help them make faster and more informed decisions. However, despite the myriad of advantages offered by this platform, businesses still face challenges when it comes to implementation, configuration and handling data model complexity, all of which need to be overcome in order to derive its maximum benefits. Understanding this, VC ERP employs its team of talented consultants along with a robust implementation methodology to help its customers successfully implement their Business One projects. This includes project preparation, creation of business blueprint, project realization, final preparation and going live and support. Moreover, the company also assists clients with 3rd party integration with SAP Business One, SAP Add-Ons as well as upgrades to newer versions as SAP releases them.

In addition to this, VC ERP also boasts of its own SAP BI practice designed to empower businesses with transformed decision making through providing fact-based quality information. To bring this about, the company leverages its expertise in the areas of SAP BI/BO, Power BI and Tableau to enable customers with critical business insights and improved productivity. VC ERP also leverages its management team who study the business processes in detail to help enterprises define the KPIs at the functional and management level. Once these KPIs are defined, the company builds various functional performance dashboards and a 360 degree management performance dashboard, where the dashboards are monitored regularly and utilized effectively, to deliver engaging information to users.

Another one of the company’s specialties is its SAP FIORI practice, through which VC ERP helps companies to customize and create next-generation UX experiences. To do this, VC ERP leverages its technical team with extensive expertise in FIORI, that work to simplify all processes from installation to implementation, customization and hand-holding. The strong UI/UX team also helps users to simplify and combine various processes on one screen, to reduce efforts and work more efficiently. Moreover, the company also builds various FIORI fact sheets to help clients view reports on their mobile screens and make quick decisions from anywhere.
