Cerro Negro and BNB

CCN implemented SAP in order to centralize and standardize business processes.

 

The challenge of the project was to unify control and management of the company; four different business units, four different information systems, and the geographical distribution of the plants in Córdoba and Buenos Aires (Campana, Olavarría, Pacheco, City of Buenos Aires) should operate with the new SAP system in concert.

As a consequence of the organizational changes that the group was going through, they considered it necessary to implement several improvements in their information systems.

Therefore Cerro Negro chose SAP as the world-class ERP system in order to centralize and standardize business processes, and hired BNB as the consulting company to implement the system.
