BEARPAW Footwear Implements Softrend Systems’ Foundation 3000™ Business Operating System
PRLog – April 25, 2012 – Citrus Heights, CA —BEARPAW Footwear, a global leader in footwear, has implemented Softrend Systems’ Foundation 3000T™ as its main business operating system. BEARPAW, which was previously operating on a less efficient system, hopes this transition will keep the 11-year old company ahead of the pack with updated processes, while increasing global market share and growth.
After several weeks of analyzing their current system, BEARPAW General Manager and Controller David Young sought to integrate a new business operating system that would foster efficiency and further expand the brand into the 21st century. According to Young, the criteria were simple. Young explains, “I searched for a windows based system that was intuitive to use, requiring little training and could provide total visibility up and down the complete supply chain.”
With over 15 years of experience working with EDI systems, Young adds, “an equally important criteria for the retail world was a very efficient system to move data to and from customers and vendors electronically, meaning a strong EDI solution was required.” Young ultimately found the solution in Softrend’s Foundation 3000T™ BOS, which, he describes, had incomparable intuitiveness and complete EDI integration.
BEARPAW’s foresight and overall vision impressed Softrend Systems and the two companies have worked hand-in-hand to create a system with a shared vision that plans to place BEARPAW as a global leader in its field. “Our ERP software and the technical collaboration between the two companies will keep BEARPAW Footwear out in front for many years to come,” says Michael Wong, CTO of Softrend. “With the advent of offshore manufacturing affecting onshore businesses, applications like Foundation 3000™ address mission critical efficiencies for companies like BEARPAW Shoes, who use third-party manufacturers in other parts of the world.” Since the decision in December of last year, BEARPAW has brought up the software as needed and has made many customizations seamlessly while going live. According to Young, the footwear brand is on target to meeting its obligations with its customers moving forward.
