Apico International is the UK’s leading parts and clothing distributor for motocross, trials, supermoto, trail riding, enduro and quad racing, and has sole distributor status for many of the world’s leading off-road brands.

The history of Apico is closely intertwined with that of motocross itself, having been founded in 1984 by triple World Trials Champion Yrjo Vesterinen.

Five years ago, Apico International was using a different business system. Although well known in the motor racing industry, it was difficult to develop and didn’t allow for integration. They reached a point where they had enough of not being able to link different processes together and decided to look for an alternative.

The decision to buy a new software system for managing their wholesale distribution business was not an easy one to make, but they felt that it was time to change with the changing economic environment.
After investigating several systems, they opted for SAP Business One and since then have seen an increase in growth.

“Since implementing SAP Business One, our turnover has increased by around 20%”

Anna-Lena Erikkson, Director, Apico International

The efficiency and level of support available was a major factor in their decision. They also found that it was easy to create new reports and analyse business data, which has helped them to improve the way they manage the company and improve control over their processes.

By implementing SAP Business One, Apico is able to manage all of their products and services more efficiently, with greater transparency and control of costs

Instead they focused on how SAP Business One would deliver the benefits we needed, which was what we really wanted to know. The payback on the SAP Business One software has been just twelve months”

This SAP Business One case study focusses on QED Group, who are a growing supplier and distributor of a large range of security equipment and consumables, to the security market both in the UK and across Europe.

They supply an extensive range of high quality domestic, commercial and industrial security products to trade customers, electrical wholesalers, hardware stores, general merchants, builders merchants and auto-electrical retailers.

QED provide an excellent level of after-sales service with access to all spare parts along with technical support for installation problems.

Before implementing SAP Business One, QED had several different computer systems but mainly used a bespoke software package.

When this became dated and QED found that the support service was becoming progressively less effective, particularly when it came to integrating with the supply chain, the management team made the decision to develop a structured plan for migrating away from their current solution.

When researching which business-wide ERP software to implement next at QED, they viewed eight or nine different types of software. They evaluated functionality, ease of use, and how each system was designed to meet QED’s specific business needs.

Then QED chose SAP Business One.

“The SAP Business One system means that once we have made our checks, we are always able to deliver on our promises.”
Matt Philp, Managing Director at QED Group

QED found that SAP Business One significantly reduces the chance of human error. Because of the way the software streamlines and enforces steps that must be made, it is impossible for customers to be mis-quoted.

With SAP Business One, QED were able to eliminate mistakes and streamline their processes and ensure that each and every customer order was completed accurately and without fail.
