Counting the Cost of Global Business
Shell Oil Products (Shell OP), the worldwide fuel and lubricants businesses within the Royal Dutch/Shell Group, is using the Magnitude to collate global cost data in a consistent format, bringing transparency and speed to performance analysis. The solution will help to monitor and reduce long-term operating costs, and will drive standardization and efficiency in Shell OP’s local operating units.
“The key advantage is that Magnitude (Kalido) allows us to get global information in a standard format without having to standardize the configuration of our local ERP systems. That significantly reduces implementation costs (because ERP standardization would otherwise occupy considerable time and IT resources), and it allows local operating units to stay flexible.”
“Magnitude massively simplifies and accelerates the collation of cost data for benchmarking purposes, and entails only a single piece of work for each operating unit. Ultimately, the solution brings detail, speed and transparency to our global cost data, and helps us to identify cost saving opportunities.”
