Vancouver, BC – October 20, 2014 – Vision33 today announced that Blu Bathworks (blubathworks.com), a modern bathware design-house and manufacturer based in the heart of Vancouver’s design community, has chosen Vision33 to implement the SAP® Business One, business management software designed for growing businesses. Vision33, one of the largest SAP gold channel partners in North America, welcomes this well-recognized, eco-friendly brand into its large family of Vancouver-based customers.
Blu Bathworks is a design-house and manufacturing company that produces bold, custom bathware and distributes these pieces throughout the world. In order to grow global operations, the company identified the need to transition from its current accounting software to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. After examining several software solutions on the market, the Blu Bathworks team decided on an integrated solution that would help solve some of their current struggles with manual processes and profitability tracking.
“Unlike the old system, SAP Business One has the functionality to track landed costs without having to spend days searching for it,” explained Michael Casale, Controller for Blu Bathworks. “We were challenged by a disjointed system and manual processes, and couldn’t perform proper analysis to collect data. We needed a solution that could track profitability and grow with our company.”
The decision to work with Vision33 was not only based on the company’s wealth of expertise, global network and resources; it was the local presence that made the difference. “We look forward to working together with Blu Bathworks in the implementation of SAP Business One,” said Peter van Leeuwan, General Manager – BC Region at Vision33. “For Vision33, we are continuing to grow our local customer base and, through our local and extended team across North America, we are continuing to help growing companies see the value the right technology can bring to their business.”
Implementation consulting and planning has started between both teams; Blu Bathworks is already looking forward to the future with an automated, reliable system that will integrate their operations and financials for better access to real-time information and the ability to run forecasting reports.
