Staples (formerly Corporate Express) had a national program to implement the Manhattan Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) across major warehouses and SAP WMS across smaller sites. This was required as a precursor to the implementation of SAP.

They required an experienced Project Manager to ensure that the multiple complex implementations are implemented the required budget and timescale. This program of work is being closely followed by the rollout of SAP as part of the NXtgen initiative.

Business Challenge

Staples also required assistance with Test Management, Go Live Support and Integration Planning to SAP.


CMC provided project management guidance and assistance to the in-house and vendor teams.

The project was successfully rolled out to Erskine Park, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane. Staples staff were mentored and a skills transfer focus was maintained to ensure internal support capability and independence were achieved at the earliest possible time.

CMC's Project Manager did an excellent job. His attention to detail, clear communication skills and ability to manage resources through the various project phases was highly valued by our organisation. The project was completed as per the agreed timeline and budget. We would highly recommend CMC to other companies embarking on a major project rollout
