British American Tobacco Enters Into Exclusive Partnership with Manufacturing Execution System Vendor

British American Tobacco has elected to standardize on Apriso's FlexNet as its exclusive manufacturing execution system software solution.

This decision was based on BAT's 10-year working relationship with Apriso, during which time the flexibility and scope of capabilities of Apriso's solutions have been utilized at six sites now live across the globe. Apriso's solutions help BAT to effectively meet today's rigorous production, warehouse logistics, quality and regulatory requirements.

This enterprise agreement ensures FlexNet will be deployed at BAT's strategic factories to help better manage manufacturing operations.

"We have already improved operational efficiency, quality and traceability within primary and secondary manufacturing processes while simplifying SAP ERP integration with shop floor operations," said Ian Geraghty-Bellingham, Global IT Manager for Manufacturing, at BAT. "Our next step is to expand upon our successful Apriso partnership to achieve even further operational efficiency as we strive to achieve a more holistic, global approach to manufacturing operations management."
