CIBER Enterprise Solutions, a division of CIBER Inc, has won a $2.5 million contract to implement SAP applications for Buffalo, New York-based New Era Cap, a global manufacturer of baseball hats and the largest baseball hat manufacturer in the U.S. When complete, all of New Era's operations and manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Europe will be operating on the new platform.

CIBER will implement its QuickWear solution to replace six existing information systems at New Era. These systems did not easily share data, so that data entry and reporting activities were somewhat complex. In addition, they were not specifically designed to meet the needs of firms in the apparel and footwear industry.

CIBER's QuickWear solution is a qualified SAP Business All-in-One solution and was designed to meet the specific needs of apparel and footwear companies. QuickWear provides a pre-configured, fixed price, fixed timeline approach to implementing the SAP Apparel and Footwear application.

QuickWear handles the complex style-color-size dimension and pre-pack requirements unique to the apparel and footwear industries and helps companies streamline their supply chain, inventory control, and order fulfillment processes. QuickWear can be up and running quickly, typically within 20 weeks.

As a final part of the project, CIBER will provide system training to New Era's staff.

The only apparel maker licensed to produce Major League Baseball caps, New Era Cap designs and creates more than 34 million licensed and non-licensed caps annually. New Era has experienced rapid growth in recent years, in part because of the firm's ability to capitalize on current trends, such as the influence of hip hop culture on fashion.

To accommodate this growth and maintain its commitment to customer service, the firm needed to replace its computing system with one that is more robust and provides better integration of financial, accounting, manufacturing, and customer data.

"CIBER's familiarity with our industry was impressive, notably their depth of knowledge and their experience," said Jack Mehltretter, Vice President of Information Technology for New Era Cap. "We recognized that their experience in SAP applications and pre-configured QuickWear solution would help significantly reduce our implementation time and costs."
