Konvergent’s long-standing experience in supporting BT’s HR departments led to an engagement from their Senior HR Management Team.
We helped them to set their strategy, work through their long-term goals for the organisation and develop a target state architecture. The latter was informed by HR market factors, employee imperatives and best HR practices.
We used a business capability-led approach to reach out to Supply Chain, Finance and Procurement. The idea was to fund a joint investment for an integrated ERP solution aligned to the overall digital transformation strategy.
We continue to support BT’s HR through the RFI and RFP process, helping them select an ERP solution vendor that will deliver strategic HR functionality.
Arup recognised that the shortcomings of their HR technology footprint posed a significant operational and commercial risk. Calling on Konvergent’s experience of HR digital transformation, they wanted us to help board members and HR leaders understand the scope of their technology needs, capability gaps and need for technology market insight.
This led to the company’s first global investment in HR technology, a digital HR strategy and alignment with their global Cloud strategy. Our accelerated approach supported Arup through RFI/RFP, business case development and global HR systems implementation across five regions and 38 countries.
This would not have been possible without our team’s focus on simple messaging, engaging visuals and outstanding collaboration.
Our technological impartiality ensured a successful RFP process (though both of the final global ERP vendors wrote to complain of bias against them!).
“The Konvergent team has been simply amazing! Two and half years into the project, they are still getting rave reviews from global and regional leads.”
