Manila, Philippines – NTT DATA Partnered with P.J Lhuillier, Inc (PJLI), the parent company of microfinancial services giant Cebuana Lhuillier, in the implementation of the SAP solutions-S/4HANA (ERP System) & Ariba (Procurement System) early this year.
Project CebONEa aims to help PJLI to further enhance their procurement process by better management of their Sourcing events and Suppliers. Part of this is a unified integrated system that fast-track the procurement department’s delivery of service to its 8,000-strong workforce by introducing the following capabilities: track and trace their sourcing requests (via Sourcing Module) and orders (via SNAP Module) until completion. Meanwhile, PJLI suppliers can now send all documentary requirements, check status of their accreditation, and performance ratings via Supplier Lifecycle Performance (SLP) Module. The goal of the Shared Services Center (SSC) is to automate and digitize the previous manual processes that hamper the delivery of service.
This is still in line with the company’s journey towards digital transformation.
Ruth Viray, group head for SSC, enthuses, “More than ever, our goal is to ensure that SSC is able to deliver a service that is both efficient, fast, and convenient to our clients, while making sure that we uphold the high standards we follow during the procurement process.”
NTT DATA and PJLI celebrated the first milestone of the project on the first day of August 2022; two modules from SAP Ariba - 1) Supplier Lifecycle and Performance and 2) Sourcing. The other SAP Ariba module, which is Snap Buying went live and completed the following month.
“NTT DATA’s proven capabilities and implementation quality on SAP Solutions, together with PJLI’s determination to serve their stockholders better paved the way for the timely realization of the project. NTT DATA is honored to be a partner in PJLI’s commitment to pursuing excellence through their digital journey.” Poch Reyes, NTT DATA Philippines’ President and CEO stated. This momentous milestone for PJLI’s digital transformation journey streamlined core business processes to create a unified business data and efficiently upgraded solutions functionality and vendor management system.
