Boston Scientific offers a broad product portfolio that includes: Vascular Stents, needles, defibrillators and many others. The company headquarters is in Boston with a single subsidiary in Indonesia. The main Boston office see SAP® ECC on premise R3. SAP® Business ByDesign® was selected to enable a 2-tier ERP strategy for the Indonesian distribution subsidiary.
Localization was a challenge, as Indonesia was not on the list of countries for which SAP® Business ByDesign® offers a solution. Thus, taxes and compliance had to be built from scratch by ERP logic, in addition to extensive training due to the language issue.
ERP used a ‘train the trainer’ approach to help build self sufficiency. Now three years after the fact, the system is still in use.
