THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
In the quagmire of the covid-19 pandemic, businesses around the globe are witnessing unprecedented turbulence and market disruptions. A term that gets thrown around quite often nowadays is “digital transformation.” Today, the concept of digital transformation revolves around the ability of a business to generate and deliver high values; and ERP platforms are at the center of this change. ERP is no longer just a substitute for existing legacy systems but an essential box in the checklist for realizing global business transformation. Companies are attempting to transform their product-centric business models into service-oriented ones, optimize value propositions, and develop standardized systems, data, and operations leveraging ERP as a facilitator. To ensure customized and efficient ERP implementation, companies today critically evaluate the contents that consulting firms provide while the vendor’s reputation, scale, and brand become secondary factors. In essence, end-to-end assistance, strategy planning, business transformation, and change management must be the prime offerings of any ERP consultancy firm. MIR, a Tokyo-based company, delivers the aforementioned services and empowers businesses to visualize and realize their transformation aspirations. The firm is composed of a select group of elite SAP consultants who proactively address the ever-rising demands of APAC’s business ecosystem.

The SAP implementation process commences with a planning phase where a comprehensive discussion is conducted with prospective clients to determine their goals. Elaborating more on this, Norimasa Yamashita, Executive Officer of MIR, says, “We ensure that there is consensus among the stakeholders and top management regarding the SAP implementation objectives and roadmap, which is critical for guaranteeing an effective transformation.” To propose a model that would greatly complement clients existing workflows without causing disruptions, MIR’s teams carefully analyze the business pattern within the scope of SAP implementation where essential operations such as production, sales, procurement, and accounting are thoroughly studied.
