Challenge

Landmark needed to meet compliance deadlines and curb excessive procurement spends.

Based out of Dubai, the Landmark Group is a multinational retail giant, with 2,300 stores in 22 countries and a number of partners/in-house brands. This created a highly complex sourcing and procurement landscape, leading to:

  • Nearly 8 billion AED ($2.1+ million) spent on non-trade projects
  • Lack of institutionalized capex control
  • No centralized system for corporate projects management
  • Limited time to achieve VAT compliance, without disrupting in-store operations

The client realized the need to digitize procurement, and collaborated with TCS, for a transition to Oracle Cloud-based ERP.

Solution

Taking a Machine First™ approach, TCS decided to automate key tasks across the sourcing-to-onboarding pipeline. A detailed blueprint was outlined, in collaboration with business stakeholders, finance managers, and divisional heads of Landmark’s different group companies to understand the operational, technical, and legislative touch-points underlying its vision. This helped find pain-points and recommend standard procedures for non-trade project management. As a result of this analysis, TCS:

  • Utilized Oracle Cloud ERP to transform the sourcing and procurement process
  • Custom-configured the Oracle Cloud suite in-line with Landmark’s unique requirements 
  • Leveraged TCS’ PaaS capabilities to right-size the solution
  • Helped adopt cloud-based financials with OCR support for automated invoice processing 
  • Automated the vendor onboarding process, removing manual errors
  • Retrofitted Oracle eBS R12, retail management system, and point of sales systems for VAT compliance
