A US Footwear Company needed a new ERP platform to accelerate operations and enable future growth. Drawing upon its global reach, knowledge of local markets and experience with leading edge SAP technologies, Accenture implemented SAP Apparel and Footwear Solution (AFS) ERP for 16 countries within 18 months. Accenture also leveraged SAP HANA and SAP HANA-Live for real time analytics-driven business intelligence, marking this as the first time SAP HANA and SAP HANA-Live had ever been implemented on SAP AFS. The newer, more scalable platform will give the company greater control over its supply chain and enable productivity gains, optimized costs, stronger data reporting and better business decision-making. These outcomes will contribute to the company’s profitability and ability to pursue future growth and expansion into new markets.
