GREENVILLE, SC – ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), the leading international value-added distributor of specialty technology products, today announced the successful implementation of its SAP® Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in its European operations.
On February 2, 2015, ScanSource began using the SAP ERP application in Europe to support its growing business, as the ERP system allows for the enhancement of business processes and creation of efficiencies to meet the needs of its operations globally.
“SAP is the market leader in enterprise application software, and we are delighted to have the capabilities that the software provides. As we continue to broaden our worldwide footprint, it’s imperative to have an efficient, flexible, nimble organization to ensure our focus remains on continuing to provide the highest-quality experience for our reseller and vendor partners,” said Blake Zemp, CIO, ScanSource, Inc. “Our team's dedication and effort resulted in our going live in Europe on time and on budget, and our European vendor and reseller partners have a stronger partner with a stable and scalable system to meet their needs and support their future growth. The Europe implementation lays a solid foundation for our transition to this new system in North America later this year.”
SAP Consulting Services acted as the prime system integrator on the project, which leveraged the best practices of SAP for Wholesale Distribution software solution. Using SAP’s innovative technology, including its SAP for HANA high-speed data analytics platform, the project was completed within its 13-month timeframe.
