Mavim Supports Operational Excellence Program at Automobile Importer

Challenge

Client facing disruption needed to implement a new ERP system to support way of working

The automotive industry is facing disruption on a daily basis. Not only are companies coming up with cheaper, better ways to deliver products but new regulations on carbon emissions are forcing the entire industry to pay close attention to compliance or risk major fines. All of this forced a European automobile trade & services provider to dramatically reduce operational expenditures by implementing a new ERP solution to support a streamlined way of working across 32 countries.

Approach

The company used Mavim to collaborate on and create a business process blueprint of their desired way of working. This map also included connection to numerous departmental risk and control frameworks as well as the IT infrastructure. Mavim was used as the navigation system to guide the chosen system integrator in implementing a system that supported the way the company wanted to work.

Results

The entire project succeeded in going live within the project scope as well as time and budget restraints. The IT director credited Mavim with making clear not only how the company wanted to work but where the dependencies with other applications, roles, processes and local legislation existed. This saved the company from too much customization and from too much re-work. They currently still use Mavim to understand how new functionalities being added in the cloud impact the way they deliver customer value.
