Terumo North America Brings Intelligent Enterprise to Life During Worldwide Pandemic
WALLDORF, Germany, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Terumo Americas Holding (TAH), a subsidiary of Japan-based medical device manufacturer Terumo Corp., successfully implemented SAP S/4HANA® and several other solutions across multiple sites. The company embarked on this project as part of a digital transformation journey, uniting operations, systems and people to help achieve its mission of contributing to society through healthcare.
"SAP S/4HANA is the foundation of our company's digital transformation and part of our overall strategy and commitment to better serve our customers across the globe," said Hiroshi Nagumo, president and CEO of TAH. "Integrating vital business processes on one common platform means greater efficiencies, allowing us to continue bringing physicians and their patients the highest quality products and services as we grow."
Digital Transformation Powers Business Growth
"With the implementation of SAP S/4HANA, we're providing the best practices that our different business units require with the right balance of standardization and configurability — and the results have been immediate," said Kalyan Balsubramanian, vice president and chief information officer, TAH. "For example, by sharing updated demand information from customers in America, Europe and Canada with our manufacturing facilities in the United States and Japan, we can now better manage our data across our supply chain."
Project Goals Achieved: On Time, Under Budget, In Compliance
"The strategic planning for this transformation was well underway prior to the global pandemic, but we persevered — with the help and commitment of our employees — to support future growth," said
TAH's experience reflected the tremendous advantage of becoming an SAP-enabled intelligent enterprise, said Greg Petraetis, SAP general manager and senior vice president for the SAP Midmarket and Ecosystem in North America.
"Companies in every industry need to stay ahead of fast-changing markets and customer demands," he said. "Being able to integrate actionable data across all of business processes — from manufacturing, supply chain and inventory through procurement, finance, human resources and more — is how modern business ultimately delivers the right products at the right time to the right customers for competitive advantage."
