This SAP Business One case study shows how Apico International increased their turnover by 20% since implementing SAP Business One
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%”

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
