Our client is the leading global food services company, and long term strategic partner one of the world’s largest fast food retailers. Several years of rapid organic growth had led to the development of separate operational entities across Europe, APMEA and the US. Our client was looking for a way to unify these disparate operations to create greater economies of scale and to transform its in-house and outsourced technology capabilities into a driver of business value and growth.
A far-reaching sourcing programme designed to leverage the combined scale of our client’s Logistics businesses in Europe and Asia by integrating the two regional operations to create a combined operating model. This integrated model included a closely aligned technology sourcing approach and the creation of a Cloud-first approach and shared centres of excellence in both regions designed to propagate innovation and develop a best practice regional / group ‘umbrella’ governance structure.
