JGB Distributing Inc., North America’s leading distributor of the Invisible Fence product line, was experiencing chronic inefficiencies with its legacy accounting system. Modules weren’t integrated, resulting in cumbersome and time-consuming order entry. JGB wanted an ERP solution that could grow with their business, create operational advantages to expand market share, introduce efficiencies and tools to increase customer convenience and take advantage of 24/7 access to key financial metrics for improved decision-making.
After selecting the SAP Business One ERP solution, JGB enlisted Softengine Inc., an SAP Business One reseller specializing in wholesale distribution and manufacturing, to perform the implementation. Softengine expertly managed an amazingly fast-paced rollout of the system and worked hand-in-hand with JGB staff to help them achieve mastery and self-sufficiency through targeted training. One of the most innovative features of the new system is the “dealer order pad,” which is essentially an online store, featuring customized online catalogs for each dealer.
With SAP Business One on-board, JGB has enjoyed dramatically increased efficiency, resulting in the successful recruitment of new distributors and the capability to fold in new operations and expand their business without having to add new staff. According to Cliff Kinzig, JGB’s CFO, “Softengine did an incredible job – the consultant provided in-depth tutorial services, sitting down with our users day after day, showing them how to utilize SAP Business One…. The money was well spent.”
