Data Migration at FMC Health and Nutrition

Successful transition to SAP

Successful Transition to SAP

FMC Health and Nutrition is a division of the Specialty Chemicals Group of FMC Corporation, one of the world’s leading specialty chemical companies. Its products, complex blends of carrageenan, alginate, Avicel® microcrystalline cellulose, and konjac, improve the stability, efficacy, and sensory characteristics of foods, pharmaceuticals, personal care, household and other products.

As part of FMC Health and Nutrition’s strategy to expand its portfolio of naturally sourced specialty products, FMC acquired two businesses, South Pole Biogroup Ltda. in Chile and Phytone Ltd. in the United Kingdom.

Data migration specialist Type 2 Solutions handled the migration of both acquisitions’ sales and distribution data and processes into FMC’s SAP system.

End-to-end Data Migration

“ By keeping the entire migration project in one hand, from legacy system back-engineering through loading into SAP, we managed to cut out the complexity of multiple layers that is typically affecting projects of this kind. In combination with our iDQM technology, applied to quickly organize distributed data collection, FMC was able to quickly integrate sales and distribution operations into their global customer service network, hereby significantly extending the market reach of the two businesses. ”
