Founded in 1874, Orica is the world’s largest provider of commercial explosives and innovative blasting systems for the mining, quarrying, oil and gas, and construction markets. Orica realized that to better serve customers, the company had to migrate its users from legacy SAP and non-SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to an automated system that would help users process sales orders, contracts and financial models to supply goods, and improve material requirements planning forecasting. Users include subject-matter experts, business executives and owners, and supply chain employees, among others. Lack of standardized business processes led to low visibility into the company’s performance. The need for a scalable enterprise solution was evident, as Orica’s teams in multiple countries had to rely on disparate processes across the major mining markets. The company reached out to Cognizant for help.
