SAP system rollout

In connection with the purchase of Alima Gerber, it was necessary to rollout the SAP system in the new entity. This resulted from the company’s policy to implement the same IT system for all its markets and companies, in line with Nestlé’s business principles.

SAP Rollout

Read Case Study

Hicron took part in the SAP system rollout project from Nestle to Alima Gerber as one of the implementation partners. The task of Hicron consultants was to analyze the current domestic and export sales processes at Alima Gerber and adjust them to the processes in place at Nestlé in accordance with the template provided.


Hicron was chosen for this project due to consultants knowledge of FMCG business processes in large international companies (like Kompania Piwowarska) and broad experience in rollout projects. Hicron consultants were responsible for translating business processes into SAP system functionalities and indicating areas where company’s template solutions don’t cover the existing business processes of Alima Gerber.

The rollout for Alima-Gerber resulted from the policy of Nestlé, which aims to implement the SAP system for all its markets and companies, while maintaining compliance with Nestlé’s business principles. This allows us, among other things, to standardize business practices and makes it easier to monitor and implement changes in the company at the central level.
