Gujarat Reclaim and Rubber Products Ltd while implementing ISO 14001 and adopting eco- friendly practices realized the need to form linkages with the suppliers and customers across the globe.GRRP wanted to have efficient business processes that would earn for it the reputation of a company that is easy to do business with. GRRP decided to deploy SAP to streamline its business processes and have a singular view of its businesses.

GRRP has implemented FICO (Finance and Control), PP (Production and Planning), QC (Quality Control), MM (Materials Management), and S&D (Sales and Distribution) modules of SAP. The implementation was divided into five phases: preparation, blueprint, realization, final prepration and go-live. One of the main challenges that GRRP faced was in training their employees from diverse social and professional backgrounds, and getting them to work together. To counter this, GRRP worked closely with its implementation partner Patni to define a change management roadmap. Patni involved all the users right from the blueprint stage of the implementation cycle and conducted extensive training sessions for users who were not comfortable with English, as good command over the language is a pre-requisite in using the SAP system.

GRRP claims, post implementation, they are able to adhere to delivery dates for products as well as control parameters like freight costs, packing costs and costs due to material rejections. Also this has allowed GRRP to offer flexible pricing which it was not able to offer in the previous system. GRRP is planning to implement Plant maintenance module and Business Intelligence
module in future.
