Dickinson + Associates Announces Successful Go-Live Implementation of SAP Software at MOD Pizza

Chicago, IL — June 28, 2018 — Dickinson + Associates announced that its client MOD Pizza went live on SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Cloud in September 2017. The SAP public cloud solution is designed to support the store construction, procurement and accounting operations for this leading chain of fast casual pizza restaurants. MOD Pizza, recently named the fastest growing restaurant chain in America by Technomic, is headquartered in Bellevue, WA and currently has over 340 locations and 7,000 MOD Squaders system-wide across 27 states and the UK. Known for its people-first culture and commitment to providing opportunities to individuals who often face barriers to employment, MOD’s mission is to use the business as a platform to make a positive social impact

Through a close partnership, Dickinson guided MOD Pizza through the selection and implementation of the cloud ERP system. MOD chose to become an early adopter of SAP S/4HANA Cloud as it could enable simplification and standardization of their business processes, without the expense and overhead associated with traditional on-premise solutions.

Commenting on the successful implementation, Joe Dollries, Vice President, Delivery at Dickinson + Associates said “MOD Pizza has fully embraced the public cloud for all of its Business / IT solutions. With the SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Cloud project, they adopted the built-in SAP Best Practices to standardize their business processes supporting their goal of real-time insight to their business performance.”

Bob Barton, CFO for MOD Pizza added, “As we continue our rapid expansion, leveraging the right solution for immediate insight to our performance is an important step forward for us.”  Bob went on to say Dickinson has been a great partner for MOD, “They demonstrated their business and SAP Cloud ERP knowledge and led us through implementing this very new technology while helping us adopt, and where needed, extend the SAP S/4 HANA Cloud solution to help MOD fit to this Best Practice solution.”
