Beam Suntory is the world´s third company in the Premium alcoholic beverage sector. It has a portfolio of popular trademarks such as Jim Beam, Souza, Canadian Club, Courvoisier and local brands such as Fundador, Larios and DYC.
Beam´s Head of Business Intelligence and Integration, Javier Espinosa de los Monteros, shares his experience with Befree:
“We have been working with Befree for 8 years. Our partnership is excellent, they meet our expectations and this makes our everyday work easier”.
Beam has a solid IT structure and a highly-qualified workforce. The company has been using SAP for many years and always looks for innovative solutions. Its team is currently implementing SAP HANA.
“For the projects that we undertake, always led by our internal team, we need highly-specialized professionals who have to provide solutions from minute one. This is Befree´s added value. Its professionals have always been very skilled technically and have adapted to the work team easily“.
“When I require consultants from Befree for a SAP assignment, I expect them to be technically top-tier, understand our business and be flexible. Working for Beam on a SAP project means you could be in Madrid today and in Kentucky tomorrow.”
Internal team sizing is usually one of the most important decisions for CIO´s in big companies. Javier gives us further details on his approach:
“It is important to have a quality internal team in place. This is what gives stability to our departments. Having experts in every area is quite difficult. We can count on Befree and its flexibility with this since they are able to provide a top-level SAP BW Consultant at short notice and for the requested length of time”.
“I would recommend Befree without a doubt. They have an in-depth knowledge of the sector, they work fast and efficiently, and above all, they are honest.”
