KUFNER’s story is an excellent example of why United VARs was founded in 2006.
Back then, when the small group of SAP Value-Added Resellers came together with an idea, it was to devise a plan to create a global community of partners. The vision was to help customers deal with their business objectives across all of their operations internationally. This would be realized with the provision of in-country partners familiar with local and legal requirements, and with specific industry knowledge. Find out more about the project by watching the success story.
Kufner is a global player in the textile industry, represented in over 70 countries with their partners.
Andreas Krall, CEO, Kufner Group: “Before we introduced SAP ERP here, we had a different software application at each location and it was very difficult to combine all these results and figures in one software.” “This made us choose SAP, where we work with the same software worldwide and thus all data is available on one basis.” “We would not have been able to implement this without United VARs.”
Alexander Herfort, Business Development Director, United VARs: “If we look at all the locations at KUFNER, there isn’t just one KUFNER and that’s where the strength of United VARs comes in to play.”
70 members, 100 countries
United VARs is a strategic alliance of SAP consulting firms in 100 countries around the world. We have local resources on the ground in the same time zone, understand when there is a response in the cultural context and then implement the change on site in the best possible way.
Michael Zitz, CEO, All for One Group, understands the importance of United VARs members working together to achieve maximum success for clients internationally: “All for One is a founding member of this network and we help our customers in their subsidiaries to implement a global approach but always with local contacts in their countries.” “The big advantage for KUFNER and the cooperation with the United VARs network is quite clear - to have a contact person for global topics, while successfully looking for the implementation in the individual regions and countries with a local United VARs partner, and finally realizing and implementing it.”
Kufner’s project was rolled out in 12 countries, each with many different regulations in the area of financial accounting, which can entail complex dimensions.
With the collaboration of United VARs members: All for One Group, Seidor, Answerthink, KBJ and Redpoint Solutions, the client got complex SAP ERP implementation project in scope, on budget and on time.
