ThoughtFocus, an SAP partner, today announced its participation at the SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 16–18 in Orlando, Florida. ThoughtFocus will be presenting Digital Transformation strategies based on its recent experience in Manufacturing and Aerospace and Defense with SAP’s S/4HANA® Enterprise Management suite.

ThoughtFocus is one of the few companies with experience in large scale greenfield implementations of S/4HANA. The company recently announced one of the first greenfield implementations of SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management in North America by completing two successful roll-outs of SAP S/4HANA at the Parts and Bus divisions of REV Group, a $2B specialty vehicles manufacturer.

Commenting on that roll-out, Prashanth Sharma, ThoughtFocus’ Vice President, Manufacturing Solutions said,

“Our client, a leading manufacturer of specialty vehicles like Fire and Emergency, Recreational Vehicles, Buses and Industrial vehicles gave us a mandate to bring uniformity in operations while delivering transformational efficiency in 13 different business units. Our solution with a greenfield implementation of S/4HANA is delivering on that transformative change. Our client is pleased with our many program rollouts. We delivered on an exceptionally aggressive schedule while SAP S/4HANA itself continues to evolve. This is a landmark achievement in the SAP community.”

The implementation transitions all of REV’s Champion bus brand’s business processes from its legacy system to SAP software, including sales, production, purchasing and logistics, warehouse management, quality inspections, and finance and accounting. This transformational solution uses elements of the SAP vehicle manager application and variant configuration while leveraging standard SAP software functionality and best practices throughout the end-to-end process.

ThoughtFocus is participating at SAPPHIRE NOW to show customers how to optimize digital transformation initiatives while achieving operational goals.
