Philippine Airlines (PAL), Asia’s first commercial airline, is set to modernize the company’s key business processes – finance, procurement, supply chain, and human resources – by partnering with NTT DATA Philippines to fully implement SAP solutions.
The partnership brings together NTT DATA’s best-in-class global IT services with SAP’s intelligent enterprise solutions to support PAL’s goal of achieving full digital transformation
“Being a pioneer in the aviation industry, we are intent on implementing 21st Century technological solutions to improve our business processes,” said Nilo Thaddeus Rodriguez, PAL Chief Financial Officer. “A true digital transformation will strengthen interdepartmental collaboration and promote sound decision-making as we tackle the challenges of global competition. This will benefit our customers who look to us for reliable service as the nation’s flag carrier and largest international airline.”
“We expect the new business solutions from NTT DATA and SAP to help equip our PAL leaders with the right data at the right time to make sound decisions that will allow the airline to quickly adapt to change,” said Alvin Kendrich Limqueco, PAL Senior Vice President for Supply Chain Management. “This project will help make PAL stronger, more agile and more resilient as we continue to fulfill our mission of bridging the Philippines and the world with our signature Buong Pusong Alaga or heartfelt service.”
NTT DATA Philippines’ President and CEO, Pocholo Reyes, shared “We are proud to be Philippine Airlines’ innovation partner to accelerate their digital transformation. Our team is committed to the success of PAL’s transformation journey by implementing NTT DATA & SAP solutions to help them increase operational productivity, enhance enterprise decision-making capabilities, and improve employee experience.”
NTT DATA and SAP will work together in preparing the runway for PAL’s flight towards an established digital business system, assisting their commitment to be stronger and better positioned for the future.
