Business continuity through service excellence
Daikin Europe offers a broad range of products and solutions for industrial, commercial and residential use. The product line is structured around 4 major pillars: heating, air conditioning, applied systems and refrigeration. Delaware manages the SAP applications, including the day-to-day operations, incident handling, problem management, changes requests and consultancy.
Joachim Verplancke, Section Manager IT Development (IT Center EMEA): "We've found in Delaware a solid partner in managing the big volume of SAP IT improvement requests from Daikin business users across Europe. Our collaboration has led to an increased speed of execution through an SLA-based service model but also a cost-competitive offering by GLocal (offshore and local) implementation teams. On a regular basis, we challenge Delaware to continuously improve together with us, taking into account technology innovation, customer needs and economic challenges.”

The power of ‘GLocal’
By applying our GLocal approach, we make a real difference, offering tailor-made support based on our customers’ individual needs over time. Our approach combines the best of both worlds: local proximity through on-site support that is integrated with the customer’s team complemented by global resources for increased cost efficiency.
We choose not to have one location delivering all services in different shifts, with a low cost focus, but have developed a clear vision on following our customers, wherever they are located. This approach is complemented with our global delivery centers, each of them focusing on a specific set of competences. They can be involved in the follow the sun chain in a supporting mode, with a positive impact on the cost picture, or they can be fully used as a competence center, in a more factory based approach.
