How do you feel about this story?


delaware Philippines, a global leader in delivering advanced ICT solutions and services, proudly unveils the successful implementation of SAP Ariba and SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for Aboitiz InfraCapital (AIC), the infrastructure arm of the Aboitiz Group. This achievement marks a significant step forward in its continuing digital transformation efforts and enhancing the company’s overall efficiency, encompassing both procurement and asset management.

The deployment of SAP Ariba, a leading digital solution renowned for its robust spend management capabilities, signifies a pivotal moment in AIC’s journey towards optimizing procurement processes. This transformative solution equips AIC with the tools necessary to transact with greater agility, harness sustainable sourcing savings, and foster resilient supply chains.

Additionally, delaware Philippines successfully launched SAP S/4HANA EAM, which marks a significant milestone in AIC’s digital transformation initiatives. This implementation not only enhances asset performance but also positions AIC as a forward-thinking infrastructure leader committed to prioritizing digitalization in their operations, which is considered asset intensive.

The integration of both solutions to the S/4HANA Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system empowers different personas in AIC’s ecosystem—buyers, suppliers, asset technicians, alike. With SAP Ariba, buyers gain unparalleled control over the entire purchasing process, leveraging insights to drive cost savings and uphold ethical sourcing practices. Simultaneously, SAP S/4HANA EAM is designed to help tackle the challenges faced by modern asset technicians and operators by helping drive effective asset optimization strategies.

For delaware Philippines Partner and Delivery Head Rosette Carrao, the successful implementation of these solutions into AIC’s processes stands as a testament to the company’s commitment to fostering improved business management enabled by technology, a move they wholeheartedly support.

“The SAP Ariba implementation encompasses Supplier Lifecycle and Performance, Sourcing, and Commerce Automation modules, all designed to streamline operations and elevate vendor engagement. Similarly, with all maintenance orders (preventive, corrective, and emergency) being processed via EAM, integrated with previously delivered Finance, Materials Management, and Controlling modules, AIC gains full control over every asset operation. This optimization of sourcing processes, centralization of information and risk management, and leveraging of automation are all pivotal in achieving their goal for business transformation,” explained Carrao.

The successful implementation would not be possible without the help of the amazing team behind delaware and AIC who worked hand in hand and fostered teamwork. For delaware Philippines Senior Vice President for Customer Success Simone Pigason, they made sure that both teams will work together in a safe, engaged, and collaborative environment for this project and for the overall partnership.

“Since it’s important for us that both organizations learn and grow from each other while doing this project, delaware even conducted a Design Thinking workshop on Business Transformation Management about project management to strengthen the relationship between two teams and make the implementation of SAP Ariba, SAP S/4HANA EAM and other upcoming projects, successful. This was also our gateway to build a lasting, impactful, and valued relationship with AIC,” said Pigason.

AIC Head of IT & Digital and Vice President Raymund Ramos echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the unwavering commitment of delaware Philippines and its team to implement this project.

“We extend our gratitude to all individuals involved in this milestone. Everyone’s unwavering support and diligence from the beginning of the project until we went Live are instrumental as we usher in a new era of efficiency and growth for AIC,” Ramos reiterated.

As AIC embraces this innovative solution, it reaffirms its commitment to operational excellence and strategic foresight in the dynamic landscape of infrastructure development.
