HP to transform Molson Coors Brewing’s finance and systems

Infotech Lead America: Molson Coors Brewing Co. has tapped HP to transform some of the brewer’s finance and HR processes and systems to reduce costs.

To increase efficiency and improve access to critical information, HP Enterprise Services will support Molson Coors’ migration from
regional support to a cost-efficient and flexible HP cloud environment.

The cloud environment, according to a statement from HP, allows Molson Coors to scale resources up and down as business needs change.

HP claims that its improved Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) platform offers clients more robust workflows, while integrating tightly into enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to improve operational effectiveness.

In addition, Molson Coors’ move to a cloud hosting environment via the new HP BPO platform will standardize HR and finance processes globally to their corresponding business applications.

By better aligning processes and applications, Molson Coors can easily expand into new markets more quickly and cost-effectively.

“In the evolving beer market, we look for business solutions that help keep us nimble and flexible, so that we can focus on brewing great beer brands for our consumers,” said Gavin Hattersley, chief financial officer, Molson Coors Brewing Company.

Molson Coors will receive BPO services from HP’s centers of excellence in Canada, Costa Rica, India, Poland and the United States.

HP’s delivery model — that combines the power of HP technology with experienced professionals around the world — will enable Molson Coors to benefit from better flexibility and cost efficiency while minimizing risks.

“With top brewers joining forces to compete, it’s critical for Molson Coors to use the latest processes and technologies to drive even more operational efficiency,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president and general manager, Americas, HP Enterprise Services.
