Super Sailmakers is 20 000th SAP Business One customer


SAP AG has announced the 20 000th customer for SAP Business One. Super
Sailmakers, a one-stop shop for all sail needs founded in 1973 and based in
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, selected SAP Business One to support all core
areas of its fast-growing and increasingly international business.

It took only one product demonstration from SAP partner Netsirk to convince
the company to replace its legacy system, and only 30 days to turn the
decision into business value. Now, SAP Business One, together with the
complementary e-commerce solution Netsirk Credit Card Processing by SAP
partner Netsirk and Third Wave Ship Link by SAP partner Third Wave Business
Systems, form the one-stop business solution for Super Sailmakers.
Of Super Sailmakers' 15 employees, eight work with the integrated business
management application to run the entire business, from closing deals,
producing and shipping products to customers and resellers on time, managing
the financials, tracking production, expanding the relationships with the
business network, to delivering various services.
"We are considered a small company, but as such our business is highly
diversified and shows high growth rates, which makes it hard to find a
suitable software solution," says Bob Meagher, vice-president of Super
Sailmakers. "With multiple locations selling directly to sailors, boat
dealers and manufacturers in the United States, Caribbean and Europe, we
needed to consolidate our management and operations in a single platform,
integrating our high-end services to large cruising yachts with our unique
requirements as a sailmaker for smaller boats.
"SAP wasn't really on our minds, but SAP Business One, combined with the
knowledgeable solutions and customer-focused record of Netsirk, clearly
addressed our unique business needs best and met our expectations for
ease-of-use, flexibility and affordability."
