If you are in the cement or concrete industries – there is a new SAP.com site that might be of use to you.
Many cement and concrete companies we meet with say they are seeing a promising upturn in their business – and have been actively looking at how digital technology can help them leverage the trend and grow. They are again actively looking at analytics, In Memory, big data –and even Internet of Things (IoT) – to help do more of what they are always aspiring to do – maximize asset availability, optimize supply chain performance, and achieve service excellence.
Sometimes we talk about the broader challenges that Mill Products companies face – or even that Energy and Natural Resources industries face – broader categories that include cement and concrete. But we also know that companies want to know what others are doing in their direct or closely related industries.
We now have an SAP.com site dedicated to cement and concrete industry. We will continue to refresh this site with the newest customer stories, thought leadership commentary and white papers that you can look at as you continue down your digital transformation journey. Some examples that you can find talk about how:
- Savanah Cement is doing real time planning and forecasting – and reducing closing time by 80% – in part by working with SAP and SAP Suite on HANA
- HeidelbergCement India increased revenue, thanks to visibility into daily sales totals by implementing ERP solutions from SAP. The company implemented the solution at 70 distribution warehouses in just 4 months!
