Leading North American producer of ready-to-assemble furniture migrates from IBM iSeries architecture to SAP S/4HANA in the cloud.
Symmetry a leader in enterprise application management, hybrid cloud hosting and GRC solutions, partnered with Sauder Woodworking to migrate their SAP environment from ECC EHP 6 and PPDS Rel 714 to SAP S/4HANA 1709 and HANA 2.0.
A family-run business based in Archbold, Ohio, Sauder embraces sustainability measures that reuse and recycle more than 98% of its solid waste materials. Sauder combines 80+ years of American manufacturing experience with expanded global sourcing capabilities to meet the needs of consumers and retail customers. The company currently offers nearly 50 furniture collections that enable everyone to experience the joy of affordable style.
A long time SAP user, Sauder made the choice to be an early adopter of SAP S/4HANA® to take advantage of new functionality rather than investing time and resources to build its own customized solutions. Recognizing the looming support deadlines for the legacy ECC software, Sauder wanted to set its own timeline to deploy and optimize the new suite, rather than defer and be rushed to change modules. They turned to Symmetry to optimize and deploy their new environment, while migrating off the IBM i-Series.
