Bauer Performance Sports adopts Attune's SAP AFS solution

Apr '14
Attune Consulting, a premier global solutions provider to the fashion and lifestyle industries, announced the success of its partnership with Bauer Performance Sports Ltd. (BPS).
 
attune worked with BPS to implement the SAP AFS (Apparel and Footwear) 6.5 platform across two companies that form BPS’s lacrosse business. The implementation has enabled BPS to integrate the companies to meet the increasing demand and seasonal deadlines associated with purchasing lacrosse equipment.
 
“Maverik and Cascade combine to represent one of the largest lacrosse equipment manufacturers in the world,” said Anne Marie Doucette, director, information services, at Bauer. “With attune’s help, expertise, and manpower, we were able to quickly integrate product management systems across these two companies. For any business acquisition a seamless integration is critical, but it’s more essential in a seasonal industry like lacrosse.”  
 
BPS is a leading developer and manufacturer of ice hockey, roller hockey, lacrosse, baseball, and softball equipment, as well as related apparel. Following the acquisitions of Maverik Lacrosse in 2010 and Cascade Helmets in 2012, BPS established a new and expanding presence in lacrosse, one of the fastest growing team sports in North America. 
 
To take advantage of the opportunity, BPS needed to integrate the acquired companies and gain control over key processes – from production planning and inventory management to sales distribution and financial controls. While Maverik was running on an older version of SAP AFS, Cascade was using a legacy system – requiring both a significant system upgrade and first-time implementation of SAP. attune’s team of experts worked with BPS to implement SAP AFS 6.5 across the companies and create a scalable enterprise architecture that operates seamlessly with BPS’s existing technology environment.
 
“Our goal in working with BPS, as with every one of our fashion and lifestyle clients, is to ensure the technology solution we implement will support their growth objectives,” said Ingrid Zohar, project manager at attune. “With BPS, we focused on tailoring the SAP AFS implementation to address requirements for the successful integration of their lacrosse business and provide a foundation for the future. BPS’s confidence in the expertise of our team has led to a strong and valued partnership.” 
 
attune continues to provide BPS with on-going solutions support through its Managed Services Practice. This service offers a comprehensive portfolio of business process, technology, training, and support services based on attune’s years of industry experience and knowledge of SAP AFS and Retail leading practices.
