COTY, the global cosmetics company, faced a challenge following its acquisition of several brands from Procter & Gamble: how to onboarding numerous employees located across the globe, prepare data for the new ERP systems and update its data management processes.
Our longstanding relationship with P&G since 2008, coupled with our founder Jef Minsart’s consulting experience with Wella (acquired by P&G in 2003), positioned us uniquely for this project.
Familiarity with the legacy data and the team gave us a strategic edge in facilitating a smooth transition.
The project spanned a year, involving a coordinated effort across 40 team members in 7 countries over 3 continents. Our commitment extended a few weeks post-migration to ensure a smooth transition. The outcome was highly successful: data integration issues at go-live were minimal and did not hinder critical business operations at any of COTY’s plants.
Our industry knowledge, coupled with a strong focus on structured project management and stakeholder engagement, led to a successful integration that positioned COTY for continued success in its expanded global operations.
