Mexico’s Cemex, S.A.B. de C.V. announced recently the successful execution of its integration to SAP-centric enterprise platform for its operations across all business lines in Mexico, Spain and Costa Rica. This platform is already implemented in other operations, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and France, among others. Cement, ready-mixed concrete and aggregates operations are now using one of the most advanced enterprise application software available in the market.
Cemex achieved this integration in record time with the help of a transformation team that included key representatives of the different business operations and expert guidance from individuals in the internal Cemex business process areas. In the next 12 months, the integration process will continue in Central and South America, Europe and Asia. “We are very proud of these achievements. They show that Cemex people are fully engaged in making the company more efficient,” said Lorenzo H. Zambrano, chairman and CEO of Cemex. “The commitment and the discipline of the implementation teams and the response of all users to this new technological platform have exceeded our expectations, ensuring the success of our operations for years to come.”
During the project, the company received support from its subsidiary, Neoris, a global business and IT consulting firm with extensive experience in SAP integrations. Said Eduardo Guerra, Senior Vice President of Processes, “The coordination between country presidents and their teams with the Processes area and Neoris has been a clear successful collaborative effort allowing these major achievements for our company.”
