The ICC runs simple with SAP Business One – SAP and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have teamed up to make this year’s ICC World Cup “the most digitally advanced in ICC Cricket World Cup history” through the power of SAP Business One.
SAP is not only working with the fans, but also with the ICC to help them to run simple. All the financial management for the tournament is being run on SAP Business One, due to its simplicity, cost efficiency, and how quickly it can be implemented – in this case it took only six and a half weeks. It was also important for the ICC to choose a system flexible enough to report across varying budget levels and three different currencies – Australia, New Zealand and U.S. dollar.
Luke Spano, the financial controller for the World Cup event, describes SAP Business One as their “single source of truth.” He explains that having access to real-time data and insight for a tournament such as this is crucial for accurate on-the-spot decision making and that having all the data in one location enables ICC to fulfil all their reporting needs. According to Spano, this not only adds “real business value to the entire organization,” but also allows the team to focus on the real-time analysis and insights, which means that everything runs smoothly. SAP Business One aims to enable small and midsize businesses to better manage every aspect of their operations, ranging from financials to sales and customer relations.
This purpose has been fulfilled with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, which according to Greg Miller, Vice President and General Manager of Global Partner Operations, SAP Australia and New Zealand, is “a true example of a lean and agile small business running simple.”
