In 2005 this Local Authority embarked on an ambitious efficiency review setting up a shared service centre and implementing SAP as their ERP. This was followed in January 2006 by a second major change programme known as the Business Delivery Review (BDR).
Alsbridge were contracted to review the existing SAP implementation to enable efficient Shared Services across the Council. The scope of Alsbridge’s work quickly expanded to include overall programme delivery of BDR – the objective of which was to save £50 million in costs over a 2 year period.
- Reviewing and validating existing SAP implementation plans
- Recommending customisation to existing SAP interfaces,
- Creating specific SAP based tools to enable increased financial accountability and control
- On-going training at both management and user level
Alsbridge have played a major role in the successful delivery of this ambitious change programme. The programme has already resulted in significant improvements and is being closely monitored by other County Councils as they struggle with the same financial pressures and organisational challenges.
