Ashok Leyland deploys SAP applications across all its core functions

Chennai / Mumbai — Ashok Leyland (ALL), the Hinduja Group flagship, has deployed an integrated SAP-based IT solution to manage planning and supply chain processes across core functions covering all 7 manufacturing plants and dealership locations in India. The solution leverages SAP’s best practices for the automotive industry and enables ALL to seamlessly integrate operations, increase efficiency and manage the growing global demand for its vehicles. The implementation will also improve forecasting capabilities and create a transformational foundation for analytics.
Speaking about the development, Mr. Vinod K Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland, said, “While our earlier homegrown IT platform was sophisticated and robust, our decision to migrate to the state-of-the-art SAP applications was dictated by the need to accommodate our global complexity. This marks a significant move up in our endeavor to improve operational efficiency and thereby enhance customer experience. This is an important step towards achieving our vision to be globally among the top 10 truck and top 5 bus manufacturers.”
“Our association with Ashok Leyland reflects our continued commitment to deliver integrated solutions that meet the evolving needs of the automotive industry,” said Peter Gartenberg, Managing Director, SAP India. “I am confident that the SAP deployment at ALL will provide the right IT platform to drive their initiatives in becoming global leaders in the automotive space.”
