AgriOne: THE SAP BUSINESS ALL-IN-ONE CERTIFIED SOLUTION FOR AGRICULTURAL COMPANIES AND COOPERATIVES

Consolidation: following the recent mergers and takeovers,
the new perimeter of the Charentes Alliance cooperative
encompasses more than 5000 active members. The plant
production, agricultural supply, wine-growing, farming
and livestock activities spread over some 235,000 hectares
in Charente, Charente-Maritime, and Dordogne. Because
the group’s long-term development involves modernising
and improving its competitiveness, SAP All-in-One now allows monitoring and finance
rules to be harmonised group-wide, and the AgriOne certified vertical solution provides
unified management of business processes of the cooperative’s branches and activities.

The Group boasts a wealth of skills, with more than 625 employees across a range of activities such as plant production, agricultural supplies, wine-growing and garden centres, supported by central services that provide the cross-functional resources required for the smooth operation of the group.With membership of more than 5000 farmers, Charentes Alliance is the top agricultural cooperative society in the Poitou- Charentes region. THE NEED FOR HARMONISED FINANCIAL STANDARDS AND BUSINESS PROCESSES Created by the merger of the Charente agricultural co-op with the Syntéane agricultural co-op in 2009, the group wanted to promptly lay foundations that would allow it to benefit from the economies of scale and synergies generated by the merger, to guarantee long-lasting growth. Reactivity in the unification process of the two cooperatives was a priority. « We have laid down group managementrulesanddirectives, and we have become more competitive. » One of the first tasks was to define monitoring and financial standards for the entire cooperative. This effort to modernise tools and improve competitiveness therefore turned towards an All- in-One SAP solution, which is particularly recommended for the setting up of integrated real- timeoperationalprocesseswithreportingfunctions that are sophisticated and highly successful yet user-friendly. The very complete range of SAP All-in-One functionalities,basedonbestpractices,isavailable as standard in a library of ready-to-use modules. Consolidation: following the recent mergers and takeovers, the new perimeter of the Charentes Alliance cooperative encompasses more than 5000 active members. The plant production, agricultural supply, wine-growing, farming and livestock activities spread over some 235,000 hectares in Charente, Charente-Maritime, and Dordogne. Because the group’s long-term development involves modernising and improving its competitiveness, SAP All-in-One now allows monitoring and finance rules to be harmonised group-wide, and the AgriOne certified vertical solution provides unified management of business processes of the cooperative’s branches and activities.

  2. 2. EOZENCLIENTTESTIMONIAL AGRIFOOD -SAPBUSINESSALL-IN-ONE/AGRIONE « AgriOne has enabled us to sustain our internal and external growth, and this information system is proving to be a competitive advantage - a strategic plus - because it is flexible and durable, and its wealth of functions makes it easy for us to open up to other business sectors. » Dominique Simon Information Systems Director Charentes Alliance Group This exhaustive range has provided a solution to all the immediate functional requirements of the group, whilst future developments can be contemplated with flexibility and peace of mind. Starting from this SAP All-in-One standard ERP basis, the AgriOne preconfigured vertical solution was then deployed. AgriOne was developed by EoZen - SQLIGroup especially for agricultural companies and cooperatives to manage every branch of the business, especially collection and agricultural supplies. BEST PRACTICES, DELIVERED QUICKLY The help of an integrator partner with dual expertise in best practices and SAP solutions as well as agricultural businesses sped up integration by reducing deployment times, but without interrupting production. The evaluation and control of budgets and deadlines also contributed to the successful merger of the two cooperatives. REAL-TIME ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND TRANSPARENT, CONSOLIDATED INTEGRATION What are the benefits of the solution deployed? More specifically, access to the right information is now controlled: whatever his or her role in the company, every user can access the information of interest in real time. The financial reports of eachentityareissuedinfullconsistencywithGroupguidelines, with perfect readability of all transactions. Themanagementandvaluationofstocksandsilosisconducted in real time, in an integrated and transparent manner. The reports and dashboards are based on reliable key performance indicators, also in real time. The branch-by-branch consolidation of activities is operational.Thus,for example,the group’s wine-growing and popcorn activities range from production to marketing to the end customer, including the product processing, packaging, and transport phases in between. The solution provides visibility over all processes fromoneendofthechaintotheother,evenwhentheprocesses are shared between several legal entities.
