Rocket Consulting and SAP to Demonstrate Benefits of Digital Supply Chain

Joint Supply Chain Execution event announced for 17 November SAP supply chain and mobility specialist, Rocket Consulting, will bring the benefits of the digital supply chain to life at an event it is co-hosting with SAP. ‘Transform Your Supply Chain with Digitalisation’ is being held at SAP in Vanwell Business Park, Maidenhead on 17 November 2016. Sponsors include Approyo, Descartes and Honeywell.

The objective is to demonstrate how a digital supply chain execution platform brings enterprises up-to-the-minute information and analytics, allowing them to manage processes in real-time and shift from a reactive to a proactive and predictive management approach. This optimises customer service, maximises profitability, and minimises administration and expenses.

The event will include a presentation from Rocket’s award-winning customer Arla Foods that will illustrate the tangible results of SAP extended warehouse management, yard management and dock appointment scheduling, and interactive supply and demand management. There will also be hands-on demonstrations from partners, showing the current and best in practice voice solutions and the latest innovations in mobile real-time visibility, which include hardware, integrated transport management supplier platforms and HANA cloud technologies. In addition, Rocket will be showcasing a range of real-time insight and data visualisation tools and the live application of IoT (Internet of Things).

Markus Rosemann, Vice President Logistics, Extended Supply Chain, SAP SE explains: “Rocket Consulting has extensive experience and strong customer references around the digital transformation of the supply chain for SAP customers. This forms the basis for ‘Transform Your Supply Chain with Digitalisation’, which will allow other enterprises to explore what is right for their business needs.”

“We see first hand how a digital supply chain transforms our customers’ businesses,” explains Lewis Marston, CEO at Rocket Consulting. “This event will give other organisations the opportunity to see the benefits on offer and to find out more about working with Rocket and our partners to transform their own supply chain to meet the customer service expectations of our fast moving digital economy.”

Chris Carter, CEO at Approyo, says: “To demonstrate our full SAP supply chain product range in the HANA environment in the UK, it is critical to work with the right partner. An established supply chain execution specialist, Rocket Consulting, which has a solid business reputation, provides an ideal fit and the event is an important element of our global focus.”

Pol Sweeney, VP for Sales and Country Manager at Descartes says: “Our focus is to facilitate supply chain execution by providing customers with real-time visibility on the carrier activity undertaken by third party global logistics networks once this is outside the boundaries of their own organisation. SAP’s technology and Rocket Consulting’s knowledge and implementation skills are a core part of this process and this event is a good opportunity to further strengthen those relationships to enhance the service we can provide to SAP users.”

Justine Clark, Industry Marketing Manager, Transport and Logistics, Europe at Honeywell says: “Digital supply chain execution puts the emphasis on the end-to-end process and using technology to enable efficiencies. Rocket’s SAP expertise allows it to address each constituent element and select core partners that enable the complete SAP platform. This event provides us with the opportunity to demonstrate the role that we play in that process and what we can offer customers to help their operations.”

Free to attend, ‘Transform Your Supply Chain with Digitalisation’ is aimed at senior decision-makers, predominantly in the manufacturing and retail sectors. More information and registration is available here.
