MPIC first to adopt RISE with SAP for digital transformation

Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC) has tapped technology company SAP for its digital transformation efforts hoping to put in place seamless business operations.

MPIC has a diverse set of assets held through its operating companies with several subsidiaries covering toll roads infrastructure, power and water utilities, healthcare institutions, among others.

MPIC partnered with SAP to consolidate, modernize, and standardize its enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems on a single platform through RISE with SAP, a Business Transformation as a Service (BTaaS) offering. Powered by SAP S/4 HANA digital core in the cloud, MPIC can streamline operations across its subsidiaries, gain insights into end-to-end performance with process analytics and simplify its accounting, financial close, treasury, and risk management processes.

“Dealing with several business models has resulted in a disconnect across our ERP applications and non-standardized operational processes in our organization, thereby leading to a lack of visibility into real-time data and insights,” said Chaye Cabal-Revilla, MPIC’s Chief Finance, Risk, and Sustainability Officer. “By partnering with a trusted technology advisor like SAP, we hope to realize our business transformation strategy, standardize core processes, facilitate data-driven decision-making with analytics and look at developing new digital business models in the new normal.”

Cabal-Revilla is also responsible for the digital transformation at PLDT and Smart Communications when she was the chief financial officer. The company adopted SAP S/4 HANA ensuring a smooth transition from manual to digital processes.

“Powered by SAP S/4 HANA digital core and connected to SAP Business Network, MPIC will also gain access to suppliers, asset intelligence, and logistics trading partners for business collaboration while building resiliency against disruptions and optimizing operations, predicting needs, and enabling proactive responses as they accelerate growth and scale for the digital future,” said Edler Panlilio, managing director, SAP Philippines.

SAP has also most recently introduced its SAP Product Footprint Management solution that lets companies calculate carbon footprints for their products and across the value chain.
