“We now see our master data as a strategic asset” Steve Filreis, Pratt Director of SAP Programs


Business Goals

  • Business Growth – expansion of manufacturing sites required enhanced planning, and potential acquisitions would require confidence in consolidation and reporting
  • Business Efficiencies – need for increased financial compliance delivered through a standard process that would not disrupt the higher value activities of the financial team
  • Business Effectiveness – through control of information on a central platform, the company desired insights extracted out of their data in order to drive accountability

Implementation Highlights

  • Decrease Business Risk – Update the fragile reporting system that wasn’t sustainable or repeatable
  • Consolidated and Centralized Models – Update previous personalized planning models requiring high degree of communication and chance for error (plus risk of attrition)
  • Sales & Operations – Broaden limited insight into plant Sales and Operations
  • Better Decision Making – By updating into robust reporting controls that enable nimble decision making
  • Speed Up Feedback – Real time reflection in business changes
