A leader of the Polish cappuccino coffee market, Mokate SA, will be using SPRINT – preconfigured SAP system prepared for medium sized companies. The project is conducted by BCC.
Selection of SPRINT followed a thorough analysis of Mokate financial and logistic processes, presented in form of a business project. The project, also conducted by BCC, enabled precise definition of the scope of the future implementation and specification of the recommended organisational changes.
Mokate management expects that the implemented SAP solutions will help them to gain a significant competitive advantage, mainly due to accessible multi-layered sales reports and profitability reports and also due to efficient tools for sales, production and expenditures scheduling with stock levels optimisation facilities.
Mrs. Teresa Mokrysz, Mokates owner, said: "Mokate is a core Polish company that during its ten years of operation has grown from a little family company into the branch leader and one of the most well known Polish companies. I am convinced, that usage of SAP solutions will help us to strengthen our position on the Polish market and provide conditions for further development – without limitations imposed by those IT solutions we have been using so far ".
Mr. Marek Tarnowski, Mokates President of the Board, says: "We have chosen BCC due to its extensive experience gained during implementation projects carried out in many food companies. Our choice was also supported by a fact, that we would be able to use SPRINT and, consequently, considerably reduce the costs and time needed for SAP implementation".
SPRINT is a preconfigured solution designed by BCC enabling quicker and cost-effective implementation of SAP in medium sized companies. SPRINT is the sole preconfigured solution certified by SAP Polska. So far, SPRINT has been implemented in Elite Cafe and in twelve publishing and printing companies belonging to an international media group. At the moment SPRINT is being implemented in five Polskie Wydawnictwa Profesjonalne (PWP) entities.
Mokate is the largest Polish producer of cappuccino coffee (with approximately 70% market share). Mokate also produces "MOKATE CAFE INSTANT" instant coffee, "Biały Miś" cacao, drinking chocolate, "Carmen" powdered cream and "Mokatella" – the only diet supporting coffee available on the Polish market. Mokate products are exported to over 30 countries.
