Mercury Holdings Selects SAP To Drive Operational Excellence

Ireland’s largest engineering services company standardises processes onto my SAP Business Suite

DublinSAP today announced that Mercury Holdings, Ireland’s largest specialist in mechanical, electrical and fire protection services, has selected mySAP Business Suite for Engineering and Construction. The solution will help Mercury deliver turnkey projects: from tender submissions, through design, planning and installation to improve the operational speed of the company and increase its competitive advantage.

The SAP solution will enable the company to consolidate and standardise processes across the worldwide Mercury Group, delivering greater integration and transparency of information, particularly around financial and project data. Using implementation partner, Diagonal Consulting, the company will initially deploy the SAP solution across its business in Ireland before rolling it out to its operations in Poland, Russia and the Middle East.

Philip Adams, Delivery Manager, Mercury Holdings, commented, “Ultimately this is about delivering a better service to our clients. Having company wide access to real-time, reliable information, together with improved reporting and analytics, means we are able to meet client needs faster and more effectively. The industry expertise built into the SAP solution and provided by Diagonal meant we were confident that we were benefiting not only from a world leading software solution but also from industry best practices, to ensure a successful implementation and high return on our investment.”

Suzanne McClelland, Account Manager, SAP, added, “Mercury is a growing company, and it was important that we were able to demonstrate that SAP is a good decision not just for today but also for tomorrow. Organisations of all sizes rely on SAP to help meet their growth objectives whilst delivering efficiency gains from the start. SAP for Engineering and Construction is a robust solution with many years of best practice built in. This is a learning that comes as standard for SAP industry solution customers.”

Bob Pidgeon, Project Manager, Diagonal Consulting, said, “Diagonal are very pleased to be working with Mercury on this exciting project. Diagonal already has a reputation for successfully delivering SAP solutions across a wide range of business sectors. The award of the Mercury contract will build upon previous industrial experience and further enhance our detailed knowledge of the construction industry. In return, it will deliver significant benefit to Mercury and further increase its competitive edge.”
