The Client: Arvato Bertelsmann, a leading European consultancy to the Public and Private Sectors.

The Requirement: To resource the delivery of a flagship SAP solution into Central Government. Incorporating the newest versions of S/4HANA, 3rd party plugins such as SF and Jaeger, all hosted on a brand new AWS platform provided by their infrastructure partner. A broad variety of SAP consultants had to be deployed quickly, SC/BPSS cleared.

The Solution: Deployment timeframes were just 2 weeks. We provided consultants skilled in: ABAP, PI, Data Migration, SRM, OTC, PTP, HCM, FI, CO, BI, Technical Build Manager, Portals, Basis, Roles & Admin, IDAM, SF, S/4 HANA and an SAP Project Manager. Technical requirements changed as the project evolved from base level ABAP to new and uncertified SAP modules at the time, such as Grants and Funds Management. The team grew to a total headcount of 75 across the term of the project.

  • Security clearance was checked and they were referenced prior to submission.
  • High-level SAP technical testing ensured technical quality.

The Value: We offered a unique fixed pricing model demonstrating significant savings. Our internal team and Account Manager handled everything from initial sourcing and identification, through screening, all the way to deployment.

  • Quality focused process, no duplicated profiles, no variation in rates.
  • One point of contact with a deep understanding of the project.

The Feedback: “We had quite a demanding requirement to stand up an SAP Build team capable of delivering a challenging programme of work at very short notice. Not only were Fuse up for this challenge, they exceeded it. Within a matter of weeks the team had landed and hit the ground running. The whole boarding and security process was seamless, with positive continued contractor aftercare. The date the team have hit every major milestone presented to them ensuring the project remains on track.”
