When it comes to NZ SAP rollout... Briscoe's will never buy better

New Zealand retailer Briscoe Group has completed its implementation of the SAP HANA platform, through enterprise consulting services firm RealTech.

New Zealand retailer Briscoe Group has completed its implementation of the SAP HANA platform, through enterprise consulting services firm RealTech.

“On the Monday after going live,” says Jeffrey Westcott, IT manager at Briscoe Group, “the majority of our reports ran significantly faster.

“Our experience is that people don’t like to wait. Any delay can be discouraging.

“The upgrade to SAP Business Warehouse on SAP HANA was a performance step change and has taken us a step closer to real-time analytics.”

In providing the implementation services, Andrew Spicer, managing director, RealTech says SAP HANA has made a “significant difference” to the speed of Business Warehouse reporting for Briscoe Group.

“There are a lot of inter-related variables that have to be accounted for when migrating to SAP HANA,” Spicer adds.

“We have developed a methodology that helps us specify the individual steps that need to be completed, required resources (including additional expert resources from our partner Sentio), estimated person-hours and anticipated benefits.

“As a result, we can provide firm ‘go-live’ dates and accurate cost estimates at the outset.”

Echoing Spicer’s comments, Westcott says RealTech and Briscoe Group have had a long and successful relationship in New Zealand.

“When RealTech commits to a project, they do it right the first time and on time,” Westcott adds.

“So when we made the decision to implement SAP Business Warehouse on SAP HANA, there was really no discussion. RealTech was our preferred partner.”

With 80 Briscoes Homeware, Rebel Sports and Living & Giving retail outlets around New Zealand, Westcott says Briscoe Group captures thousands of individual transactions every day.

“We value our data,” he adds. “We load large volumes of data into our data warehouse on a daily basis that is used to support merchandising, marketing and financial decision making.

“With the faster processing due to SAP HANA, we can now access this data more rapidly to enhance and support our decision-making across all of our brands.”
