May 21, 2019: Marston’s, one of the UK’s leading brewers and pub operators, has furthered its partnership with Edenhouse Solutions as it looks to drive continued innovation across key business areas.Marston’s first installed SAP technology more than 20 years ago, with Edenhouse acting as its SAP support partner since 2011. The two are now strengthening their relationship to strategically identify where and how Marston’s can leverage new technology to better serve its customers.
Solution architects at Edenhouse have been drawing out a roadmap with Marston’s to pinpoint which business areas are ripe for transformation – these include warehouse management, analytics and distribution, as well as Marston’s finance operations which are currently run on SAP software.
Following completion of the roadmap project, Marston’s will be perfectly placed to make the next step in its digital journey and migrate to SAP’s next-generation ERP solution, S/4HANA. It can then start to take full advantage of advanced capabilities, such as real-time insight on data and a personalised, responsive user experience.
Phil Court, Head of Tech Delivery at Marston’s, commented: “With such a large and diverse customer network, it’s essential that we continue to innovate in order to keep up with their demands.
We value our SAP partner as much as our investment in the tech itself – uniting our industry expertise with Edenhouse’s knowledge of the software is a winning combination. The roadmap we’ve been building together is helping us to clearly understand how operations are running and where we can drive efficiencies.”
Paul Solomon, CEO at Edenhouse, explained: “With all our customers we aim to build long-term strategic partnerships that ensure they are taking the right path on their transformation journey and maximising their SAP investment.
“Marston’s are now at a great milestone on their SAP journey, undergoing important preparations for their migration to S/4HANA. Having worked with Marston’s for the best part of a decade, we are incredibly proud to help guide them through this exciting period and look forward to seeing them benefit from future digital innovation.”
