TRCC Wins SAP® HANA Innovation Award at SAPPHIRE NOW 2014


TRCC Transforms Operational Decision-Making and Wins SAP® HANA Innovation Award at SAPPHIRE NOW 2014

Decision First Technologies BI Nirvana in 90 Days Delivered ROI for TRCC within two weeks of Go-Live

ATLANTA, GA – June 19, 2014 – Textile Rubber and Chemical Company (TRCC), an SAP® mid-market customer, recently transformed their Business Intelligence program with the help of Decision First Technologies (DFT), Enowa and SAP® HANA, debunking the myth that SAP HANA is primarily a large enterprise solution.

Utilizing DFT’s BI Nirvana in 90 Days program, SAP® Business Suite on HANA, and migration performed with Enowa, TRCC not only identified product line inefficiencies costing the company thousands of dollars a day, but they also saw a four–to-six time improvement in reporting performance, a simplified IT landscape and a real-time, data analytic platform that allows for future growth. These powerful results caught the attention of SAP who awarded TRCC with a Trailblazer Innovator Award on June 3rd at SAPPHIRE NOW 2014.

“We are incredibly happy about the recent SAP award and the industry recognition it brings,” remarks Bo Coppinger, Director of IT for TRCC. “DFT’s BI Nirvana program really helped pave the way by providing a realistic roadmap for implementing real-time operational analysis within 90 days. DFT has the unique ability to understand the needs of business users, as well as a complete understanding of the functional capabilities of the SAP technologies, which is a critical factor for success.”

Needing to maximize their SAP Business Suite on HANA platform, TRCC brought DFT in to deliver a custom dashboard allowing executives to quickly view KPIs for financial, sales and operational data. They also needed drill down capabilities that tied data discrepancies back to sales orders, work orders or accounting documents. This allows TRCC executives to make educated businesses decisions based on fact, not inferences, as well as proactively monitor the health of their company.

These significant improvements are exactly what the SAP HANA Innovation Awards honor. Seeking companies who use SAP HANA to drive innovation and positively impact their workforce, partners, customers, and society, SAP recognized those traits in TRCC and honored them with a Trailblazer award.

“TRCC’s Trailblazer award is a nod to the significance of their BI transformation,” remarks Steve Freeman, DFT’s Vice President of Operations. “We are proud to have helped them find the right technology, the right process and the right people to bring about significant improvements in the way they define, view and utilize data. That’s what our BI Nirvana in 90 Days program is all about, and it’s why we continue to see tremendous customer success.”
