To meet these objectives, the group launched a program called “AKKA Towards Innovation”. To support this, Delaware utilised its industry expertise, deploying SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Concur for expenses management.
Delaware built a template for AKKA that incorporated all of the standard processes and best practices that would be deployed in the first four countries. Adopting this standard solution allowed AKKA to deploy SAP S/4NANA Cloud faster and more economically, whilst still respecting the regulatory compliance requirements of each country.
The Delaware deployment allowed AKKA to leverage relevant capabilities within the SAP suite while still deploying in a similar timescale and cost to other products in the marketplace.
This approach allowed AKKA to gain efficiencies in all its divisions and reduce the cost to serve. By upgrading its back-office functions, it can now support growth without increasing cost, as well as benefit from a solution that will enable a better integration of end-to-end project management, resource engagement, retention and customer billing.
