De La Rue Digital Transformation Initiatives

About the Customer

De La Rue plc is a British banknote manufacturing, security printing of passports and tax stamps, brand authentication and paper-making company with headquarters in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England.

Scope and Challenges

By the end of 2016, De La Rue decided it was time to take steps in solving the problems the business was facing some time. Among other challenges the main goals they wanted to achieve by getting themselves into a digital transformation were: Multiple systems in multiple locations running different processes on different systems, many of which were inadequately supported; Time lost pulling data from the system to make the best business decision possible; Need for a solution that serves as a platform across the company to support state-of-the-art business processes with consistent, real-time data in a unified way.

Outcome and Implications

The digital transformation process for De La Rue started with the help of their implementation partner Itelligence Group. They transitioned finance program from Sage X3 ERP to SAP Business ByDesign, a cloud-based ERP solution with a value of over £5M. De La Rue continued the transformation with the implementation of the supporting technology such as SAP BPC, Concur Expense Management System, and Travel Management System.

With SAP Business ByDesign, De La Rue consolidate multiple Finance EPR systems, migrated and consolidated the AP, AR, O2C, R2R and GA finance functions from multiple teams to a single team.


"With SAP Business ByDesign, we move toward one blueprint on how to do business across the company, equipping people to focus on what they do best and with the data to make the best possible decisions." Keith Robinson, Finance Transformation Program Director, De La Rue Plc.
