Creative Distribution Revolutionises Operations with SAP Business One, Signum Solutions and Boyum Usability Package
Creative Distribution, a leading B2B video game distributor, has experienced remarkable growth and diversification since its inception in 2003.
The company has expanded into video game publishing, toy manufacturing, and direct-to-consumer offerings. In an exclusive interview with Creative’s Commercial Director, Craig Lewis, we discuss how hosting SAP Business One with Signum Solutions and utilising the Boyum Usability package has been a game changer for the company.
According to Lewis, “The new setup put in place by Signum allows us a lot of flexibility.” This increased flexibility and efficient business processes have enabled Creative Distribution to better respond to clients’ needs and serve customers more effectively.
Lewis also notes, “Signum’s hosted SAP Business One solution takes away all the pain of hosting the application yourself.”
Creative Distribution has come a long way since its early days. With a staff count of 15 in 2003, the company now employs 75 people, thanks to significant growth during the 2008 recession.
To cope with the expansion, the company needed to invest in larger warehousing, additional staff, and better systems. However, their outdated in-house systems were not being actively managed by experts in the field, leading to the decision to migrate to a hosted solution with Signum Solutions.
“Working with Signum has meant we are now using fully up to date solutions and have experts on hand to help us evolve and grow as our business changes,” says Lewis. The migration to Signum Solutions’ hosted platform has provided Creative Distribution with numerous benefits, including remote desktop access, SAP delivered as an app, and cloud-based access. This means users are no longer restricted to accessing the system from pre-configured machines. The platform’s scalability is also set up on a per-user basis, making it easy and cost-effective to add new members of staff.
While there were some initial performance issues stemming from the intense use of SAP and the many customizations carried over from the legacy system, Signum Solutions worked diligently to identify and optimize the system for increased performance levels.
User feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with fewer complaints than before the move to the hosted solution.
SAP Business One and Boyum products are revolutionizing the way businesses operate. With SAP Business One, companies can manage all their business processes in one place, from accounting and finance to inventory and customer relationship management. Boyum products add even more functionality, allowing businesses to customize SAP Business One to meet their specific needs.
According to Lindsay Pointon, MD of Signum Solutions, “SAP Business One and Boyum products are a winning combination for small and medium-sized businesses. The integration between the two solutions allows for greater visibility into operations, improved decision-making, and increased efficiency. It’s a game-changer for companies looking to grow and succeed in today’s competitive market.”
