They strive to be the best fluid and power transmission company in the world, providing products, services, and solution that drive endless possibilities for customers.
Our Brief: Ambitious SAP Roadmap
Our client was embarking on a Greenfield SAP Roadmap, first focusing on SAP Finance (SAP FICO) and Non-stick Purchasing (MM), all to be run on SAP HANA.
We were asked to approach and engage two SAP FICO consultants and one SAP MM consultant to assist the team with implementing this into the business, with the target to go-live after 10 to 12 months.
The Challenge & Our Approach: Quality & Knowledgeable
As this was a global rollout to several countries, we identified that the challenge would be finding quality consultants who were based close to their European Head-Office. We needed to find and engage with consultants who had the knowledge and skillset to implement SAP FICO and SAP MM on HANA in multiple countries, and support after go-live.
Working Relationship: Communication is Key
Due to it being a new SAP roadmap, we had an initial face-to-face meeting to discuss their needs. After this initial meeting, weekly calls were set up to discuss the candidates we had presented, to schedule interviews, and to be introduced to other parts of the business so that we could better understand the needs of different departments.
They were an ideal client to work with, as feedback was swift, interviews were scheduled promptly, and their decision on whether or not to hire was made within a week of the initial interview.
Overall, the turnaround from receiving the brief to placing the three consultants was between two to three weeks. All of this was supported by the fact that the client knew that Ntrinsic could deliver on time and within budget.
We successfully placed the three new hires, adding strong consultants to our network and showcasing what Ntrinsic can do in a short turnaround time to build a strong and hopefully long-lasting business relationship with the client. The fast turnaround was thanks to an already strong network of consultants, sourcing new candidates and the hard work and dedication. It was also down to the hard work and dedication of Ntrinsic’s team, as they ensured only the best profiles were presented to the client on time and within budget.
Our client gave us great feedback regarding the three consultants and were very happy with the service. We also received feedback from the new hires themselves, who were happy to be part of an interesting project.
