New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Computer Generated Solutions (CGS), a leading global provider of technology solutions, announced today that major handbag manufacturer LeSportsac, a division of global sourcing specialist ITOCHU Prominent USA LLC (IPUSA), has successfully implemented the BlueCherry enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.
With the recent acquisition of LeSportsac license for North America and other territories, it became necessary for IPUSA to upgrade their operational and financial controls and have complete audit trails for each transaction. Additionally, they sought to improve costs, reduce lead-times, and improve on-time shipping to trading partners.
“We needed to make a swift and seamless transition that would enable the LeSportsac division to run under the same centralized data repository as our other divisions,” said Matthew Amato, Vice President of Operations for IPUSA. “With a confirmed track record of high customer satisfaction and its ability to streamline business processes at all levels, CGS’s BlueCherry ERP solution is an ideal choice for our operations. Couple that with an on-time delivery well within budget, and we couldn’t be more satisfied.”
“The CGS and IPUSA project implementation team worked together on this project and achieved a quick ROI through improved customer deliveries and inventory management,” said Kishin Datwani, Director of Business Systems and IT for IPUSA.
This BlueCherry implementation will allow LeSportsac to obtain complete visibility throughout the entire supply/demand chain as well as automate previously manual processes.
“We are tremendously pleased to be growing our alliance with IPUSA,” said Paul Magel, President of the Application Solutions Group for CGS. “By implementing BlueCherry ERP, LeSportsac will gain the support that will allow the division to decrease costs and improve visibility, enabling them to enhance their entire scope of business practices across the board.”
BlueCherry ERP was installed with totally integrated EDI, including 3PL EDI communications, and a BlueCherry ERP interface to the SAP-FI accounting module present in all ITOCHU global operations.
