2018 has been a landmark year for ESK – Sonepar India full of action true to the Goal of the Year PROCESS TRANSFORMATION. During this year ESK India not only achieved the business growth of 40%+, but also transformed the IT backbone of the Company.
It gives us immense pleasure to announce the successful GO LIVE of new ERP – MICROSOFT(MS) DYNAMICS D365 for Finance & Operations on 21st of Jan 2019 in ESK India. With this ESK India not only becomes the 1st to implement MS D365 in Sonepar group, but also the 1st company in its category and 16th overall in India to Go Live on MS D365.
Last 6 months of implementation period has been a journey with mix bag of challenges and hard work, though it is always wonderful to accomplish the milestone well within time and budget. This has been possible with collaborative efforts and close co-ordination between cross functional and cross department teams and amazing stewardship by the entire leadership team.
It has been a great Learning and Unlearning experience to improvise and enhance supply chain operations – the Core strength of Sonepar Distributor Business, injecting Operational Excellence with strong IT backbone.
Further, during 2018, apart from the implementation of MS D365, we also accomplished our dream project of being independent with our own independent IT Infrastructure to enhance productivity by establishing High Performance controlled network by connecting all our offices and warehouses on MPLS network, reducing dependence on China infra for internet. ESK India is also well on its way to implement the Sonepar Group O365 project with all Domain servers already hosted on cloud in India.
Looking forward, all this is just a beginning from Process Transformation to Process Excellence which will automatically lead to Business Excellence in 2019-2020, with further work on EDI, DMI, BI, PIM, E-Webshop and other value additions to be carried out.
