Fujitsu had previously been involved in conducting ICT architecture surveys for Raisio. So, it was quite an easy decision for Raisio to opt for Fujitsu and SAP, and the project was kicked off without further delay in August 2004. The new ERP solution was deployed in the domestic animal feed industry in May of the following year, in the Food unit at the beginning of 2006 and a year later in the Ingredients unit.
As the SAP implementation progressed, Raisio mulled over different options for application management.
“It didn’t take too long before we started to become inclined towards outsourcing when we were convinced that it is possible to actually make it work,”
says Jyrki Paappa, Chief Financial Officer, Raisio.
