Conquering the challenge of implementing - SAP in Latin America

  • How do I rollout my global template to Latin America?
  • I understand my global business processes but what do I need to plan for regarding localization in Latin America?
  • My SAP environment for Latin America has grown into a patchwork of different bolt-on solutions and 3rd party providers for managing compliance. How can I standardize my business processes and maintain compliance on SAP?
  • How do I manage regulatory changes on an on-going basis and still enable SAP to be my system of record for our Latin American operations?

The Situation

Implementing or “rolling out” SAP in complex markets such as Latin America presents many challenges and issues that require careful planning and consideration. More and more companies are extending their footprint into these emerging markets with the strategy of using an existing global template as the baseline for the implementation but are not sure how to address the unique legal and regulatory requirements that need to be in place to operate successfully in the country.

Origen approaches rollouts and re-engineering projects to Latin America through dedicated, country-specific assessment workshops that help you plan your implementation or upgrade project accordingly.

Through these workshops, Origen is able to devise and recommend the best strategy for approaching the specific project and the specific requirements that need to be addressed from a localization perspective. As a result of this exercise, Origen consultants can detail which processes can be standardized or would need to be adapted to fit the new environment, country-specific characteristics such as fiscal reporting or e-invoicing are clearly pointed out with recommended solutions/deployment strategies, and lastly, measures are taken to address the project’s various organizational and cultural factors to ensure effective change management and overall project success.
