Procurement solutions for the chemical, pharmaceutical and utilities sectors

 

"A transformation programme on this scale needs a strong internal team from procurement and internal IT, but of course also experienced and committed external partners. The most important thing is that everyone then works together with passion and conviction towards the common goal. In addition to the strong know-how of the consulting implementation partner - in our case the company apsolut - a strong line of communication from the partner to the software supplier SAP is also necessary. In an Interview with CHEManager Martin Traxl, Head of Strategy & Digitalisation at OMV AG, sums up what makes a successful transformation project.

Our relationship of trust with OMV, which has grown over many years, is based on teamwork and passion. We have learned that if you want to celebrate success in complex projects, you have to remain both human and critical. The result using OMV as an example: a holistic, global procurement transformation based on SAP S/4HANA Central Procurement and SAP Ariba. OMV now designs its purchasing processes much more efficiently and effectively thanks to the support provided by apsolut.
