“Atos Origin wins Sapforum05 Award”

Milan, 2 August 2005

Atos Origin, a leading international information technology services provider, has won the Sapforum05 Award for the strategic vision and the speed/simplicity with which it implemented the MyPMI consumer beverage computer system, designed to meet the competitive development requirements of Sibeg, a company operating in the beverages production and distribution sector.

Sibeg's requirements, a company that bottles and distributes Coca-Cola Company products all over Sicily, included business performance monitoring, real time availability of data relating to profitability, marketing expenses control, and analysis and reporting activities.

The solution to these requirements was the preconfigured Atos Origin MyPMI consumer beverage, with which Atos Origin integrated its SAP NetWeaver platform, created by collaboration and order entry with the commercial division via the SAP Enterprise Portal.

The solution devised by Atos Origin enables representatives to manage all communications with the central system, enter orders, invoices and payments and check the progress of these orders. In addition, the project included an integrated materials traceability system using advanced wireless tools. The system was produced in one year, an extremely short period of time given the complexity of the project, which involved new computer systems for the whole company.

“We are pleased to receive this recognition which demonstrates our capacity to meet our clients' needs and guarantee the achievement of their business development and innovation objectives, in record completion time. A winning approach confirmed by the client's testimony during the event”, declared Gianluigi Di Francesco, CEO of Atos Origin in Italy.
