Greenwood Village, CO, United States, 2014/01/13 - Ciber announced that it teamed up with Bridgestone, the world’s largest tire and rubber manufacturer, to successfully implement SAP® Business Suite software for Bridgestone in Australia - CIBER.com. NYSE: CBR
In the application rollout, Ciber consolidated and standardized Bridgestone’s operations systems for more than 250 stores and distribution centers across Australia.
“At the start of the project, we initially underestimated the project’s scope and complexity,” said Andrew Moffatt, managing director at Bridgestone in Australia. “Ciber stepped in to provide Bridgestone Australia with technical and business leadership, delivering a successful implementation and go-live of SAP software for our tire division. We are very pleased.”
Providing a custom implementation to meet Bridgestone’s needs, Ciber deployed SAP software for finance, merchandising, sales, logistics, warehousing, process integration and more. Ciber’s implementation of the SAP ERP application replaced legacy applications and involved integrating approximately 50 interfaces to mission-critical business systems for points of sale, freight forwarders, car manufacturers, fleet partners and banks.
“This implementation was a huge project requiring input from most areas of Bridgestone across Australia and New Zealand,” said Jonathan Bucktin, managing director for Ciber in Australia. “We were thrilled to see Bridgestone Australia sell products and deliver to customers from day one of the go-live in Australia.”
