Los Angeles-based feature film production, financing and distribution company, Broad Green Pictures earlier this year became the first in the media and entertainment industry to implement the SAP S/4HANA Finance solution.
Broad Green wanted to implement a cost-effective finance and accounting solution that will be scalable as the studio grows.
The SAP S/4HANA Finance will provide Broad Green with an integrated real-time enterprise resource planning system, enabling more structured accounts to help meet external and internal reporting requirements, and streamline data sets to improve financial control. The solution integrates with multiple applications including third-party rights management systems, indirect procurement and SAP HANA Live. The integration will provide one platform for Broad Green to access data and information in real time to inform financial reporting decisions.
Broad Green has signed a three-year agreement with Capgemini, which will provide implementation and hosting services, license re-sale and application support through its OnePath offering.
“Capgemini’s collaborative approach meshes well with our people-first culture, and was a big reason for our decision to work with them in implementing this system,” said Jeremy Fuchs, chief technology officer, Broad Green Pictures. “This project is an important step toward our larger goal to provide a modern infrastructure and resources to our team and filmmakers.”
Capgemini is hosting the application via Amazon Web Services (AWS), using its Orchestration Management Platform End to End (COMPLETE) business cloud platform that will enable Broad Green to scale activity based on project needs in a cost-effective manner.
“Broad Green prides itself on pushing boundaries as a new player, and we approached this project, the first of its kind in the industry, in the same way,” said Andre Merikyan, vice president for media and entertainment of Capgemini in North America. “SAP S/4HANA Finance provided us with a new way to implement SAP software in this industry. We’re excited to continue to work with Broad Green as they grow.”
