Acclimation, SAP Gold Partner, has been selected by DuluxGroup PNG as its implementation partner for an SAP Business ByDesign rollout across its operations, providing more visibility and control across the business for both the Australian head office and the local team in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

The wider business group decided to upgrade the PNG system to align with DuluxGroup operations in Australia and New Zealand, which were already using SAP. Acclimation was selected as the preferred implementation partner due to its proven reputation in the industry as an SAP Gold Partner.

Simon Barstow, general manager, DuluxGroup PNG, said, “Deploying the new solution was a critical step for the team, as it lets us create proposals and quotes more easily, process orders and remotely check inventory, as well as communicate with the Australian office more efficiently.”

By deploying SAP Business ByDesign across DuluxGroup PNG’s operations, and integrating inventory, orders, sales, manufacturing, and shipping.

In addition, the implementation helped local PNG salespeople turn around accurate quotes more efficiently, delivering a sales uplift. Deploying SAP Business ByDesign also provided access for the DuluxGroup PNG team to inventory analysis that let the team identify and reduce stock adjustments by more than 80 per cent.

Cameron Sherrard, managing partner, Acclimation, said, “By deploying SAP Business ByDesign, DuluxGroup PNG can extract more detailed data on its products and stock, helping decision-makers better understand the data available. Implementing this new solution helps DuluxGroup PNG provides data and insights that can be used for more informed decision-making on forecasting, stock, and production.”

Simon Barstow said, “The implementation was smooth, and working with Acclimation has been a true partnership. SAP Business ByDesign gives us full control and lets us move faster. With data and insights at our fingertips, we can make more informed decisions on forecasting, stock and production to help us maintain market share in a competitive market.”
