Vaillant Group Partners with TCS to Drive its Growth and Transformation Program
Expanded Partnership will See Tata Consultancy Services Build a New Digital Core to Support Vaillant’s Business Process Transformation and Future Growth
FRANKFURT | MUMBAI, July 30, 2020: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has expanded its partnership with Vaillant Group, a global leader in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology, to streamline the latter’s business processes and implement those on a single, digital enterprise process platform to support its business model transformation and future growth.
Family-owned Vaillant Group has a presence in more than 60 countries worldwide. In some markets, the processes are highly localized, resulting in siloed data and individual IT structures. To support its growth plans, Vaillant Group plans to implement a unified digital process platform that provides a single source of truth for data and enable enterprise agility.
TCS leveraged its contextual knowledge of Vaillant Group’s business to propose a future-proof, robust and flexible digital core solution using SAP S/4HANA and Salesforce. The harmonized end-to-end global business processes and better use of data will help Vaillant Group speed up decision-making and support its global market expansion plans. The digital platform will also help the company accelerate its transformation to a digital-first organization.
“We need a partner who supports us with technology and expertise to quickly scale new business models globally,” said Mathias Stecher, Group Director – Business Processes, Vaillant. “Over the last seven years, a trusted collaboration with TCS has been established. With a strong partner, the transformation, which requires flexibility and steering, can be executed. With TCS’ global capabilities in delivering large and complex business transformation engagements, we are able to accelerate the necessary worldwide standardization of processes.”
“Progressive manufacturers are accelerating their core transformation initiatives to build agility, resilience and adaptability into their business models, so they can lead in the new normal,” said Santu Mandal, Head, Manufacturing Business, TCS Germany. “We are delighted to deepen our relationship with Vaillant Group and partner them in their growth and transformation journey.
