The selection of mySAP Business Suite is designed to provide the company with a common information systems platform to effectively integrate business processes within the group.
As one of the world's largest convenient food and beverage companies, PepsiCo wanted to achieve maximum operating advantage from its combined businesses.

The implementation of the new system is over a multiyear timeframe for PepsiCo. Specific plans for prioritisation and sequencing are under way.
