As an adolescent I made some extra money by selling candy to my schoolmates. I liked selling – but I was never quite sure how much candy I sold each day, how much money I earned, and how much candy inventory I needed to handle my demand. A math whiz I was not. As it was, I probably lost money. I could have used a friend with a calculator.
There’s a lesson in there somewhere … if you can’t do it yourself, find someone who can. Wouldn’t it be great to have expert resources that could help you solve your IT infrastructure issues on your terms?
SAP Services is doing just that. Take the manufacturer Schaidt Innovations, for example. Newly formed from a parent company and in need of a complete ERP infrastructure, Schaidt did its homework and found that around 85% of the manufacturers it reviewed were using SAP ERP powered by SAP HANA. Sold. The only thing standing in the way was the timeline. Schaidt needed everything implemented within three months.
Other vendors told the company it was impossible. Cue SAP Services. Using scalable and secure cloud solutions from SAP and the SAP ERP for Manufacturing rapid-deployment solution, SAP Services implemented a functional system within weeks and had the full system up and running within Schaidt’s three-month window. While SAP’s expert resources implemented its system, Schaidt kept its focus on the business. In addition, with SAP Services, Schaidt now has access to dedicated, problem-solving support for any complex business scenarios – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
As a result of implementing solutions from SAP, the company now has a scalable foundation for growth that allows for smooth, reliable, and cost-effective delivery of new technology. Schaidt can even flexibly adapt to new industry requirements and add more modules, through the cloud and at any time, with SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud. Now it can move into supplying new industries and it has a competitive edge with faster processes.
