MAN Go Live Malaysia powered by be one solutions

MAN Diesel & Turbo SE and be one solutions kicking off a successful cooperation!

We are extremely delighted to announce that MAN Turbo & Diesel SE (MDT) have chosen be one solutions as their preferred global partner to assist them with rolling out SAP Business One® in their subsidiaries all over the world. Just as a number of other similar multinational enterprises, MDT appreciates our global coverage and the vast experience of our international staff of SAP Business One® experts. Having said that, the challenge in the past was, that MDT had to work with local partners while implementing SAP Business One® in some 15 sites abroad so far. Even though those activities were based on a template and a great internal team effort, it still meant going through various routines time and time again. Obviously, that vital aspect of “one face to the client” was missing. The German based organization had to deal with changing points of contact, repeating knowledge transfers, limited availabilities, and many other factors that slowed things down. That is why MDT have been looking around for a global supplier that is trustworthy and capable of working hand in hand with their internal resources to continue rolling out their template successfully to all additional sites worldwide. So, for those next years ahead of us, MAN Turbo & Diesel SE is going to rely on be one solutions as their strong, experienced partner to walk side by side and succeed with any activities surrounding SAP Business One® on a global scale.


Starting point “Malaysia”: MAN Diesel & Turbo SE and be one solutions teaming up for success

If you talk the talk, you certainly have to walk the walk. Indeed, what a better way to prove a decision right, than going about the very first project with absolute dedication, determination and the goal to make it work for everybody involved. And guess what? Success! We all managed the first milestone together: The “Malaysia” rollout. We do not want to exaggerate, but not only did we manage, moreover it was a truly impressive start of our relationship with MDT. As a matter of fact, the task was to implement two Malaysian sites in parallel and at the same time commencing with the efforts for MDT’s Indonesian subsidiary.

Just recently, Michael Goetz (Senior Vice President Purchasing Engine at MAN Diesel & Turbo SE / Head of Competence Center SAP) has officially announced the Malaysian go live as a “smooth effort”, that was “in time and in budget”. Furthermore, Christian Haun (Solution Consultant at at MAN Diesel & Turbo SE) wrapped it up as follows:

“It was the fastest rollout (4 months from start to finish) that we have seen so far. It also was the fastest go live phase (2 days), including opening balance migration, opening balance data entry, opening balance validation and moving the database to the production server. This was the very first time to have a single internal and external resource implementing two different locations (Indonesia and Malaysia) simultaneously.”

This all was due to an incredible work ethic of the MDT Malaysia team (pictured right) and of course the work done by the rest of the project staff on MDT’s side, as well as our superb relations that were the foundation to close the gap in order to succeed on Asian-Pacific turf. We trust that MDT and we at be one solutions can look into the future very optimistically. Actually, there is no time to rest. Indonesia is next, after which we will switch the focus to Latin America in 2017. Overall there will be at least another 7+ entities to be implemented in addition to the 16 MDT sites who currently run on SAP Business One®. In Summary, we would call this an amazing head start based on trust and respect. Again, we are proud that MAN Turbo & Diesel SE have chosen be one solutions to team up for a successful journey. For us, this marks the starting point of a healthy relation and we will most certainly live up to our claim: be one solution – the global SAP Business One® rollout experts. Stay tuned!
