JG Summit Holdings Inc., one of the largest, most diversified conglomerates in the Philippines, has chosen to implement SAP S/4 HANA in its quest for enterprise-wide digital transformation.
From humble beginnings
In 1957 Universal Corn Products, Inc. was established to operate a cornstarch plant in Pasig City, the company has grown to include more than 200 companies covering everything from air transportation, hotels, real estate and telecommunications to food manufacturing, petrochemicals, power generation and real estate.
“We only expect good things to happen moving forward. We know that SAP will help us remain competitive at every step of our journey towards digital transformation through their breed of innovative solutions, specifically S/4HANA, over the coming five years,” said Carlos G. Santos, CIO, JG Summit Holdings.
Further use of SAP software
Although JG Summit has just recently deployed S/4HANA, they have been running SAP software including Concur and SuccessFactors for some time, so SAP was a natural choice when it came to the organisation’s digital transformation journey. SAP is fully supportive of JG Summit’s vision.
“SAP is uniquely positioned to help our customers compete and adapt in the digital economy. With SAP S/4HANA at the heart of the intelligent enterprise, our customers can reimagine their business with a digital core that provides real-time insights and agility. We believe that the best run SAP, together with JG Summit’s vision to be the leading digital conglomerate in the Philippines, with our full support will be able to realise that ambition,” said Scott Russell, president, SAP Asia Pacific Japan.
“Customers in today’s digital shift expect great service experience among all platforms. The challenge for us now is to effectively use the latest technologies that would support a more immersive and interactive customer experience,” said Lance Gokongwei, president and CEO, JG Summit Holdings.
