Univar Solutions

Univar Solutions is a leading global specialty chemical and ingredient distributor representing a premier portfolio from the world’s leading producers. Their IT team is always looking to maximize their value and help the company become the most valued chemical and ingredient distributer on the planet.

As Univar Solutions approached the end of a long-term IT sourcing agreement, they were looking at options to improve their capability and value. They partnered with Syntax to create a dedicated AMS model supporting SAP, Salesforce, as well as infrastructure areas.

Download this Success Story to discover how Univar Solutions benefited from having Syntax as an extended office, including:

  • How the Syntax low cost, high touch, and “nearshore” AMS model helped Univar Solutions successfully utilize a number of benefits not offered through the traditional “farshore” India support model
  • Completion of significant divestiture, including cloning the SAP, Salesforce, and supporting application environments
  • Network design and implementation as the result of a significant acquisition

We always seek to add the most valuable resource to the team. We have a great blend of local resources and nearshore with our partner Syntax. Every individual on our team brings a unique value, but in general we see around 85% of the productivity from our extended team at Puebla, compared to the productivity we have with our United States-based consultants, at around 65% of the cost.
