Business Case

  1. Introduction / Background

Healthy Living Pte. Ltd. (HL) is a major contributor on nutrition, health and wellness. It is an international company, based in Singapore with its global IT shared services known as Global IT Services (GITS) located in Malaysia. The company has boarded on a new project to expand their supply chain operations. The earliest wave will be concentrated to South East Asia and the implementation will be organized by markets. Currently, markets located throughout South East Asia are using locally developed application to record supply chain management activities information. The first-level support (L1) is being rendered by local IT and second level (L2) is maintained by local application vendor.
