The systems will be Unicode compliant and the project involves implementing SAP ERP ECC 5.0 with AFS 5.0, BW 3.5 and CRM ISA 5.0. Installation will commence immediately at Burton's Burlington headquarters.
"Our company is growing at a rapid pace and we need an ERP solution that supports the evolution of our business, especially given our recent expansions into apparel. After careful consideration, we chose to move from SAP's standard ERP processes to the AFS version that allows a multi-dimensional inventory view of our supply chain," said Michael Abbott, senior vice president and COO at Burton. "SITA CORP and attune were the ideal implementation partners because of their respective expertise and track records within NetWeaver, CRM and the apparel and footwear applications."
"The AFS solution will make a huge impact on Burton's business processes. Sales, customer service, purchasing, planning and inventory management will all be significantly simplified with BW reporting delivering the intelligence to more effectively run their business. The implementation of SAP AFS, as well as BW and CRM is one that will support Burton's growth well into the future," said Rom Reddy, CEO and president of SITA CORP.
Coming off the heels of the recently announced SITA CORP and attune consulting partnership, this project brings further acceptance and validation to the need for these combined skills and expertise in the marketplace. The project is anticipated to take approximately one year for complete implementation, training and knowledge transfer.
