Fact Sheet — Fonterra increasing efficiency with SAP Fiori Apps


Fonterra created SAP Fiori apps in less than 12 weeks and saved 3.08 million USD per year in the process.

Fonterra needed to find a way to reduce the amount of time spent on administrative tasks so they could increase tooling time and value-added activities. They were also looking for a solution that would reduce waste and the number of times individuals were doing work over again due to error. Being out in the field added an additional requirement – the ability to integrate RFID and do it all offline.

This is when Fonterra reached out to our partner Zag and together they developed a set of SAP Fiori apps for multiple devices all powered by Neptune Software. The initial pilot was completed in 12 short weeks.

Through these apps, Fonterra is able to provide the executive team with a savings of over $3.08 million per year. On top of this, they are now able to spend more time on maintenance and less time on admin work. Their workforce now has the information they need to complete their tasks at their fingertips. They are saving time entering data into their SAP system and overall, the workforce is extremely happy with the shift to modern technologies. Implementing these apps continuously shows Fonterra the ROI of modernizing.
