Philippines–SAP has announced that Araneta Group, a pioneer in entertainment and leisure development in the Philippines, has implemented SAP Business All-in-One to streamline operations, logistics, and financial systems of its food group Philippine Pizza Inc.
The implementation was spearheaded by Fujitsu Philippines, SAP’s channel partner and Questronix, an SAP reseller.
According to Kenneth Mondero, SAP project leader and SVP for Finance at the Araneta Group, Philippine Pizza Inc. had individual legacy systems for each of its food franchises namely, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Dairy Queen.
“SAP Business All-in-One gives us the upper hand now. We are able to access reports and time-sensitive information across finance, logistics, and operations departments. There is definitely a quicker turnaround in decision-making,” he said.
Mondero also noted that this implementation enabled larger savings. “SAP Business All-in-One has allowed us to take a consolidated view of our expenses and optimize decision-making. Higher accuracy is another important advantage of this implementation.”
Today, SAP Business All-in-One is an important part of the group’s technology investments across its various businesses.
This includes the Philippine Pizza, Inc., to leisure innovator Araneta Center Inc. that houses Gateway Mall, Farmers Plaza and Ali Mall, as well as Uniprom Inc. which handles Smart Araneta Coliseum, Ticketnet, Gateway, and Ali Mall Cineplex. Araneta’s relationship with SAP has grown in strength due to the direct and indirect benefits the Group has realized over the last few months.
Speaking on the implementation, SAP Philippines Managing Director Ryan Poggi said, “As one of the most important and diversified Philippine conglomerates, the Araneta Group needed a simplified solution for accurate reporting, reduced financial inconsistencies, and better delivery efficiencies.”
“We are glad to have delivered this yet again, this time for Philippine Pizza Inc. Our relationship with the Araneta Group is a significant example of our efforts in delivering strategic advantage through a strong combination of customer vision, subject matter expertise, and superior technology,” Poggi added.
