Vision33 Inc. and EcoMotors International Partner for Implementation of SAP Business One to Manage Growth Following Breakthrough Innovation
CHICAGO, IL October 25th, 2013 – Vision33 (www.vision33.com), an SAP® gold channel partner, today announced that EcoMotors (www.ecomotors.com) has chosen Vision33 as its implementation partner for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The solution includes the SAP® Business One application, implementation services, training, and Vision33’s renowned TOTAL Care support program.
Recognized in 2012 by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer for breakthrough innovations in propulsion systems, EcoMotors has the potential to revolutionize the transportation industry; designing and developing powertrain packages 10-15% more efficient, smaller, lighter, and less expensive to manufacture than conventional internal combustions engines. The company’s belief that technological advancement is the key to reducing carbon emissions, has led its team of engineers and designers to develop patented technologies for a wide range of propulsion and power-generation applications. EcoMotors is developing the high-efficiency opoc™ (Opposed-Piston Opposed-Cylinder) engine for use in cars, light trucks, marine applications, agricultural vehicles, stationary generators – anywhere conventional gas or diesel power is utilized.
“Developing innovative technologies like the opoc™ engine, EcoMotors has the potential to transform the world. Bringing to market advanced new technology requires a robust ERP platform firmly in place to handle the building, and complex systems necessary to support large scale operations and take advantage of global opportunities,” said Colleen Hitchins, EcoMotors’ SAP Project Manager. “EcoMotors required an ERP solution that was both robust and extensible, meeting the growing global demand for innovative technology that will enable reductions in greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiencies.”
Founded in 2008, EcoMotors’ innovation led to fast-growth - requiring the implementation of a business management solution to support its operations. After diligently evaluating the top solutions on the market, it became very obvious that SAP Business One was the only contender. SAP Business One was chosen unanimously by the EcoMotors team as the preferred platform to integrate, financials, purchasing, and inventory management, job tracking and longer term manufacturing requirements.
Steve Rafac, Vision33 general manager Mid West Region, added, “We believe SAP Business One is the perfect fit for EcoMotors to support the level of growth achieved by their revolutionary technology business, as they have outgrown the capabilities of a small business solution. They really needed a solution that would support this continued level of growth. We knew SAP Business One transformative technology would provide the most value to EcoMotors and scale with them as they continue to grow.”
EcoMotors recognized that selecting SAP Business One was only half the equation; it also needed a local partner that understood the automotive industry and the company’s strategic growth objectives. “Vision33 was clearly the right partner to work with EcoMotors,” added Colleen Hitchins. “As a successful, fast-growing business also running SAP Business One, Vision33 has the unique insight and expertise to help EcoMotors leverage the investment to handle the manufacturing and distribution requirements of breakthrough propulsions systems.”
