SAP America, a subsidiary of SAP AG has introduced service offerings in North America specifically designed to help companies in the apparel and footwear, retail and wholesale distribution industries leverage IT for maximum value in the current economic climate. Bundled with a customer's software license agreement, fast-track implementation services from SAP reduce implementation time by 30 to 40 percent and overall cost of implementation by 20 to 30 percent, and provide best practices and expert consulting for retail, point-of-sale, manufacturing and wholesale distribution.

Apparel and footwear manufacturers, retailers and wholesale distributors have many similar business challenges, including limited supply chain visibility, declining customer loyalty, shorter product lifecycles and inadequate IT landscapes. Fast-track implementation services from SAP provide best practices for industry scenarios and the tools needed to plan, complete and expedite the configuration and implementation of proven SAP industry solutions. With expert SAP guidance, customers can get up and running quickly, thus having the ability to become more profitable, agile and customer-centric in less time.

"Protecting customer relationships is critical to most companies' success, whether they are a retailer, distributor or manufacturer," said Jeff Roster, vice president, Research, Gartner. "A company's ability to offer outstanding customer service is often hindered by issues like shortened product cycles and inventory management. Companies are looking for an easier and more cost-effective way to improve their overall operation by addressing their specific industry challenges with minimal business disruption."

Offering industry best practices and consulting expertise, SAP fast-track implementation services help customers easily implement solutions that address their critical industry needs and challenges including:

The SAP(R) Point-of-Sale (SAP POS) application integrates back-office and third-party solutions to enhance profitability, conduct multiple transaction types, protect customer data and enable rapid and efficient customer check-out.

To help retailers improve multi-channel efficiency, promotions and merchandise turnover, fast-track service for SAP(R) for Retail solutions helps connect financials, planning, buying, supply chain, store and multi-channel, analytics and POS integration. The service was also designed to meet the needs of retailers with a wholesale distribution channel.

The service for apparel and footwear manufacturers can help companies drive innovation, accelerate growth and increase margins more quickly. Best practices enable customers to use the industry solution to adeptly handle large volumes of data, create effective marketing strategies and manage partnerships and licensing agreements.

With the service designed for wholesale distributors, companies can take advantage of the best practices that enable better insight across their entire business network in order to better manage suppliers and improve service. Through better financial visibility, improved inventory and warehouse management and optimized operations, distributors can improve their overall margins.
