Echelon recently announced a successful greenfield implementation of S/4HANA for CRH America Materials, a division of an international group of diversified building materials businesses which manufacture and supply of a wide range of products for the construction industry.
Echelon was instrumental in implementing a greenfield SAP S/4HANA to support a new line of business for CRH AMAT in the U.S. The implementation employed the Activate methodology but also used the CRH global ECC system deployed in Europe as a process model for business best practices. This allowed the team to accelerate the initial phase of the project and align the new greenfield system’s design with the time proven practices embedded into their European system. The result is that the new North American template combines the trusted processes from the global company’s industry experience with the S/4 best practices and creates a template that is almost completely standard SAP.
The project scope was complete supply chain and financials implementation in a manufacturing environment. CRH has gone live with two phases of the project with the first very successful implementation in January 2019 and the second just implemented in May. Echelon provided strategic analysis and consulting during the solution evaluation and selection process as well as helping design the high-level approach and planning. Echelon was also the System Integrator for the implementation and is continuing to work on further implementations with CRH.
