StyleWest - SAP & Softengine Position Fashion Wear Company For Its Next Growth Stage

The Challenge

StyleWestStyleWest supplies flip-flops, swimwear and coordinated rainwear to high-fashion retailers across the U. S. The company’s existing entry-level accounting system had been overwhelmed by an ever-increasing number of users and files, causing it to slow to a crawl or simply crash. Faced with inefficiencies, incompatible software and unconsolidated data, StyleWest searched for a replacement that would consolidate the entire company on one platform, support multiple divisions and adhere to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

[quote]Softengine was there to hold our hand and listen to our concerns, both from a budgetary and a customization standpoint. They were very flexible and really tried to have our best interests in mind in installing and tailoring the system to our needs.~ Robert Angstadt, director of operations, StyleWest[/quote]

The Solution

StyleWest management selected Softengine to implement SAP’s Business One ERP solution. Within the space of less than four weeks, Softengine had completed and tested the application and delivered user training, and the system went live two weeks later. Coordinating with Softengine, management worked to create a clear implementation outline that established minimal customization (adjustments confined to the look and feel of the sales and accounting functions) while still tailoring the software to their exact specifications.
