Meet the 2019 Speakers

Being in tech for more years than she is willing to admit, Mary Coppard finds engaging with customers to be one of the best parts of her job. Currently, as part of the Strategic Sales team for SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign at SAP, Mary spends her time convincing people of the value good enterprise software brings to small and midsize customers. She has spent over 15 years in SAP Business One channel in North America and has loved being involved in the success and growth of customers and partners in the fast-changing business climate. Although not recognized as a shy person today, Mary was coached as a young adult to take up acting to learn how to speak in front of crowds. She has since acted in many amateur plays and says that the chance to be the emcee at Biz.ONE was something she has been training for all her life. When not waxing poetic, Mary struggles to pass Grade 1 piano and to bake a perfect genoise sponge. Mary lives in Toronto with her two fellas: Sammy the cat and Darryl…in that order.

ISlide’s Use of Innovation with SAP Business One in the Cloud to Reach New Customers

Justin Kittredge, founder of ISlide, knows the meaning of value. During his appearance on Shark Tank, he turned down an investment offer that didn’t match what he knew ISlide was worth, so Justin and his team have since worked tirelessly to continue growing their business. What ISlide really needed in order to grow was the ability to create new sales channels through fast deployments of customized microsites, a new customized customer experience rather than a generic experience, and all of this in a fully integrated system. Justin knew the way to get there was by finding a way to reduce initial capital investment and create more flexibility with the cloud.

Using SAP Business One and especially relying on cloud technology, ISlide has seen an increase of revenue, more customers, higher customer satisfaction, process automation, and more as well as better data analytics. Now that marketing is fully tied into B2B, customers have more options today and their needs are addressed proactively. ERP and cloud innovation help ISlide understand its customers, enabling higher levels of customer satisfaction along with increased revenue.

In this inspiring keynote, you’ll hear from an entrepreneur who knows value when he sees it—or hears it. Join Justin for this fascinating story of a company that lets people stand in what they stand for.

An Extensible Platform for Growth: SAP Propels Your Business Forward

The SAP Business One Digital Core is what enables you as you spearhead disruptive opportunities for doing business. But how can a piece of software that has been around for decades still be part of leading digital change within organizations? By creating an extensible platform that connects to the tools you need and anticipates the features you require, SAP supports your growth with an eye on the future.

In this session, Rainer Zinow will dive into detail about the SAP Business One development process and how the entire SAP team prepares for a digitally enhanced future. Don’t miss this session for an exciting inside look at the direction of SAP Business One.

ISlide’s Comprehensive Approach to B2B Management Drives Customers and Revenue

ISlide found itself in a predicament not unlike many other organizations using SAP Business One: a patchwork assembly of disparate technology that did not allow ISlide to quickly adapt to changing customer needs and emerging business trends. Without an integrated solution, ISlide was unable to create a consistent framework for affiliates or generate useful information out of the vast amounts of customer data. By developing a strong relationship with Focused Impressions, ISlide was able to leverage the FocusPoint e-commerce platform to create a comprehensive and fully integrated B2B management system that provided new customer insight through effective customer analytics.

In addition to creating an innovative and easy B2B experience that addresses customer needs, ISlide increased its revenue and customer base as well as developed new revenue channels that weren’t available previously. ISlide was able to lower its ongoing operating costs as a result of automation and was able to redeploy some staff members to other critical business tasks.

Businesses that don’t innovate or adapt will be at risk of losing customers and revenue. Join Paul and Ed in this session to learn from their insights and see benefits inside your own organization.

The Engagement Trifecta: Beat the Odds and Create a Winning Culture

Each individual influences a culture. It starts with you! This session breaks down your day into three distinctive sections. You will discover how much power and control you have in your life that directly reflects on the atmosphere of where you work and live. Learn how to make deliberate choices that will impact how you live, work, and play.

Because I Said I Would

We live in a society that often does not respect the importance of a promise. It is too easy to say, “I’ll get to it” or “tomorrow.” In many ways we have become numb to disappointment and broken commitments. This expectation starts to fade into our character as individuals. Amanda Messer believes that every individual has the strength to become a person of their word. As the co-founder of an international social movement, Amanda shares her insights and actionable ways to become better at fulfilling commitments. She inspires others to become more accountable to their promises through compelling and real-life examples from the because I said I would movement. Amanda convincingly illustrates how integrity and keeping your promises are forever interwoven. She discusses how holding ourselves and each other accountable truly changes humanity for the better.

How to Work Together With Your Partner…But Separately

From Chaos to Harmony: How Favorite Fishing Managed Explosive Growth Across 3 Brands

Managing three different company brands amid an explosion of growth comes with a host of challenges. Add a disparate technology stack with conflicting systems, and anyone would be at their wit’s end trying to make sense of it all.

Not one prone to panic, Winston Tucker knew that in order to channel the immediate success his companies were experiencing into sustained growth, he needed to put together a long-term plan that would give him a platform that would integrate data from across the various businesses into a single source of truth. He also knew that too many customizations would leave him slowed down by lengthy upgrades when it came time to update his systems. With the help of some smart partnerships, Winston spearheaded a plan that brought harmony to his company out of a cloud of chaos.

In record time, the team integrated solutions to better manage tens of thousands of parent purchase orders across more than 20 trading partners, supporting direct-to-consumer shipments, special/custom orders, and anything else customers have asked for. Built-in flexibility allows each business unit to run its operations to match customer expectations while eliminating manual processes and stress for DRI. The retail teams use one screen for visibility to all orders, and the best part is the company can confidently say, “yes” when a retailer asks if EDI trading requirements can be met.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Dynamic Computer Corporation is going through some changes, preparing to scale and refining its corporate strategy. This includes some changes in leadership and the way Dynamic looks at SAP Business One® as an enabler. With Boyum Usability and RFgen already purchased and yet to be implemented, Dynamic had to regroup, needing to move the company forward and take advantage of what was available. Like the child in the Dr. Seuss story “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” there were many places they could go—good and bad. Dynamic needed to learn how to approach this journey and get its best ROI along with internal buy-in from executive leadership and users.

With a fresh approach and some capable add-ons (Boyum Usability, RFgen), Dynamic rebooted its SAP initiative. Using lean concepts along with continuous-improvement tools, Dynamic was able to create a new road map, then worked along with its integrator to make significant progress. The organization is now on a value-added path with support from all stakeholders, realizing real business benefit.

Key takeaways:


  1. Getting the organization behind the system as a competitive differentiator

  2. Leveraging the 7 wastes of Lean and other continuous improvement tools for change management

  3. Building a business case for change grounded on Lean concepts

  4. Building a road map to keep everyone on course and help the senior leadership, user community, and integrator to take SAP Business One to a higher level of business enablement

Reinventing Your Business with SAP Cloud-Based Solutions

A familiar struggle in business is identifying common problem areas that impact not only the culture of the company but also the efficiency and attitude of the team. Implementing SAP Business One as a cloud-based ERP system has allowed us to ask better questions about our business and see relevant data that was not possible in our previous software.

As a family-owned business for 60 years, we continue to strive for a culture of excellence, and SAP has brought efficiency and a higher standard for manufacturing accuracy, customer communication, and overall revenue. We have seen a dramatic increase in sales revenue since implementation, including reduced overhead and notable increases in the productivity, efficiency, and attitude of our team. Our team spends less time with internal paperwork and more time with customers and vendors, which is an obvious “win” for our organization. Since the implementation, we have asked more hard questions about how we run our business and “why.” This has effectively reinvented our entire core business and allowed us to remain relevant to the marketplace.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Increased sales revenue

  • Improved operating efficiency

  • Reduced overhead/operating costs

I’m New to SAP Business One. How Do I…?

SAP can be a bit overwhelming the first few times someone tries to use it. There is a lot of power and functionality under the hood that may not be easy to find for a first-time or newer user.

By taking some of the more commonplace tasks (creating a sales order, looking up a product in inventory, entering a new business partner, etc.) and giving a few step-by-step instructions, along with some tips and tricks, we hope to provide an easy introduction to SAP that people can take with them to the other sessions as well as back home.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Provide a high-level introduction to some basic functionality in SAP.

  • Provide some tips and shortcuts to use within SAP.

  • Provide an environment for new users to ask basic questions.


 

The Power of Automated Business Process

Nowadays, e-commerce has become a basic tool that helps business grow. It is not just about having the tool itself, but the challenge lies in how to maintain the combination of desired business process, customer satisfaction, and the right technology running behind it.

Bailey’s runs SAP Business One and multiple e-commerce platforms. As the business continues growing, we have hundreds of thousands of customers and products with thousands of attributes and product options. It was a big challenge to maintain the huge volume of daily B2B and B2C transactions and the wide variety of attributes on products level and on the business partner level while abiding by our firm standards and data security policy.

To aid with that, ITM Development provided fully integrated SAP Business One solutions and customized e-commerce development, including full synchronization between SAP Business One and all e-commerce platforms and marketplaces, fraud detection system, return merchandise authorization (RMA), and Authoriz.net, all within one single version of SAP Business One, which can also monitor correct data flow and accuracy of data integrity. A customized development of Magento was also needed, such as a complex product page with information coming from multiple resources (attributes, files, UDT), and a complex filtration mode and custom shipping method required unique capabilities.

Now we are proud to have fully automated business processes, and as result, we could be able to reduce the operational costs and avoid human mistakes to increase the productivity and the revenue accordingly.

How Corporate Culture Can Make or Break Your SAP Innovation Strategy

Are you looking to get more out of SAP Business One by improving processes, integrating with third-party software, moving to HANA, and taking advantage of mobile? Are you working on anything innovative with SAP Business One that’s going to be a game changer and set you apart from the competition?

Without the right corporate culture in place, these plans will likely fail. As Peter Drucker said: "Culture eats Strategy for breakfast".

Tim Guest is managing director of SAP Business One user Zoedale Ltd in the U.K. and has firsthand experience of this. After implementing SAP Business One in 2014, Zoedale Ltd went on a three-year cultural change program, which saw 50% of its existing staff leave. In 2019 the 15-person team is working to a set of values and principles; the culture really is about challenging the status quo and constantly looking at ways to improve processes.

This session will give attendees a few simple steps to help them define their values and principles and create a culture that not only accepts change but also drives change.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Learn how culture can help achieve your business objectives.

  • Define a set of values and principles aligned with your strategy.

  • Build a culture that drives innovation, change, and improvement.

Advanced SQL Queries: Business Intelligence from Your Intelligence

Learning SQL is an investment in yourself—or your staff—that helps make the most of your current technology investment. SAP HANA and Microsoft SQL are themselves powerful business intelligence tools that can be used to great effect. Come see a tutorial on writing analytical SQL queries using the more advanced features of your system. We start with an unremarkable “select” statement and build on that using joins, groupings, aggregates, and window functions to get informative and actionable intelligence. The content of this session applies equally to Microsoft SQL and SAP HANA.

Key Business Benefits:


  • We make the most of our investment by building our own reports.

  • The body of our SQL knowledge is kept in the database itself, ready for study.

  • Our SQL experience leads to easier integrations of other SQL-based systems.

No More Hand-Keying Orders!

With its four associated companies, Design Resources Inc. (DRI) must take in orders from a huge variety of customers in a wide variety of formats. Processing orders for custom-decorated apparel from college bookstores across the U.S., major sports leagues, a direct-to-customer BigCommerce website, and a sales rep team distributed across the U.S., the IT team at DRI has listened to the business, which says, “We don’t want our team hand-keying orders.”

The IT team has designed systems to take in orders in EASI, SPS Commerce’s RSX, custom XML, PromoStandards, intercompany (within SAP), BigCommerce API, and direct to database. By parsing these formats into our database and then providing standardized views to make the information look the same to our users and to SAP Business One, the business can then either automatically import the orders or allow users to approve orders for import using a web portal.

We will look at how DRI has utilized custom, in-house-developed tools and reseller tools such as Third Wave Systems’ BizWeaver and Orbis Software’s TaskCentre to drive its companies a little bit closer to 0% manual order entry every day.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Eliminate data entry errors.

  • Get orders into the system and to the warehouse for fulfillment fast.

  • Allow our team members to perform more fulfilling work.

Redi Bag Targets Transportation Savings Using SAP Business One UDO Capabilities

Redi Bag USA is a plastic films manufacturer that provides plastic bags, films, and containers for the grocery, industrial, and health care market segments. As Redi Bag USA grew in size, we needed to add additional capability to aggregate shipments into truckloads with stop-offs to ship more freight on fewer trucks.

You will learn how Redi Bag, in just eight weeks, designed, built, and implemented a load-building module that easily allows aggregation of multiple orders delivering into one or many customers on a single truckload. Hear about how Giancarlo, VP of technology at Redi Bag, worked with Daryl, VP of operations, on devising the functional specs and implemented them using SAP Business One.

We will walk you through the journey on how Redi Bag is leveraging this custom load-building module in SAP Business One and how it drives other efficiencies and automation. The automation frees up valuable time from our shipping staff to focus on delivering the shipments on time, without damage, and at the most cost-effective mode of shipment.

Building an Accountability Culture of Learning and Innovative Thinking

Looking at my business, I used to think, “somebody should fix that problem.” Then I realized I am that somebody and accountability started with me. I overcame my delusion, but I realized that to have accountability from my team, they had to know the end game. This meant total transparency of the company’s vision and long-term goals at every level of the organization. SAP Business One provides the foundation for data transparency to accompany our process and leadership transparency.

In this session, Milena Radakovic, president at Nexus Exhibits, will share how the single most costly business issue today is the inability to effectively execute key strategies. She will describe how, after three years of transformation, Nexus now has a high-performance team culture of accountability and innovation to be proud of. Learn strategies that you can use to build a culture of trust that motivates people to accomplish more.

How a Wholesale Distributor Doubled Its Efficiency with WiSys

Ram Products is a wholesale distributor of repair and maintenance products, offering the immediate delivery of managed product from mobile warehouses. Ram products had several operational challenges related to speed and accuracy in the operations of purchase order receiving, production, in-transit transfers, picking, and cycle counting. These processes were either slow, prone to errors, or required more than one person to complete these tasks.

To resolve these challenges, James Shotts, director of operations for Ram Products, chose to implement a warehouse management system (WMS) solution in the warehouse. Ram Products spent considerable time evaluating WMS solutions before selecting WiSys. The organization’s evaluation was based on how focused the WMS company was on SAP Business One, experience with HANA, ability to demonstrate the product, and cost.

This session will be a deep dive into RAM Products’ WMS transformation as James shares its journey that doubled efficiency, automated workflows, and decreased the number of times that product needed to be touched and validated by people in the warehouse.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Doubled efficiency in the purchase-order receiving process

  • 30% increase in shipping capacity

  • Decreased number of required people by 50% in the in-transit transfer process

Workshop 3: Advanced Queries and Mastering SAP Crystal Reports

SAP Business One has some amazing capabilities to make your data work harder for you. But are you taking advantage of all the tools you have at your disposal? Do you know how to configure reports to get just the right information that you and your team are looking for?

In this workshop, you’ll take a deep dive into understanding and creating complex queries that can give your organization a better grasp on core business performance metrics. We’ll start with some of the basics like table relationships and commonly used tables in SAP reporting. From there, we’ll start to look at the more advanced functions like SQL views, stored procedure, and SQL commands.

Maximize Your SAP Business One Investment with Integrated E-Commerce

Organizations want to focus their attention on business expansion, but many are bogged down by the hassle of having to integrate the software and connectors that make up their complex e-commerce ecosystems. Especially when handling large-scale accounts, businesses want to minimize manual workloads and maximize automation. This is integrated e-commerce’s sweet spot.

Still, many organizations are turning to shopping cart software or interfacing solutions: approaches that create more siloes, are traditionally kept separate from the ERP, and require data synchronization and replication. That doesn’t have to be the case.

Join us for a deep dive into how the Sana application can solve key challenges for SAP Business One users.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Discover the benefits of integrated e-commerce.

  • Learn how to maximize existing technology investments.

  • Reduce time and resources for e-commerce projects.


 

E-Commerce Helped This Distributor Drive More Business – But Where Are They Now?

Hummert International, an 80-year-old family-owned horticulture equipment distribution company, sought to optimize its online sales in 2018 after decades of success with traditional channels. At the time, its existing web store offered minimal flexibility, a weak customer experience, and little back-office integration.

Choosing Sana Commerce, an e-commerce platform that directly integrated with Hummert’s SAP Business One ERP, helped Hummert double its online conversion rate and drive 25% more new business in the first year after its new-and-improved web store launch. The organization did so by optimizing its customer experience with advanced segmentation, an enhanced product catalog, and a more streamlined purchase journey.

But where is the organization now? Have its wins continued in year two?

Join our session for more on how Hummert International’s e-commerce success has evolved in 2019, including insights on how it has benefitted from guest checkout, how the company is enabling better online self-service, and how it has reduced internal order processing workload by 50%.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Discover the key benefits of integrated e-commerce.

  • How to overcome common e-commerce challenges.

  • Learn how integrated e-commerce can help drive more business.

International SAP Business One Intercompany Integration Challenges

At MES, we have implemented SAP in Hong Kong, U.S., Mexico, India, China, and now Poland. Most SAP Business One implementation partners have limited experience in implementations in multiple countries. As we implement across different countries, we have had to do:


  1. Customizations required for specific countries

  2. Examinations of intercompany settings, which if not done correctly can wreak havoc on supply chains, operations, and financial statements. This has limited user history with implementations in multiple countries.


SAP Business One is the system we use to track critical metrics of on-time delivery, supplier performance, financial statements, and quality data. Global IT Manager Chhaya Gala will present and discuss the pitfalls and challenges we experienced while implementing SAP Business One globally and what we learned from them. We will also present some of the countermeasures we put in place and customizations we did to make the implementation an ongoing success.

 

Delivering on the Promise of Reliable, Self-Service Business Intelligence

Dennis, VP of operations and supply chain at Arani, recognized the need for improved operational efficiency that the company could manage in-house. The organization needed a more reliable and scalable analytics solution.

Arani’s existing SAP Business One framework was unable to provide the types of reports needed. As a result, Dennis spent a significant amount of time manipulating SAP Business One data to then start creating a lot of reports in Microsoft Access and Excel. As the business continued to grow at a rapid pace, the management team was unable to make proactive decisions due to its limited insight into crucial information and its reactionary approach to reporting.

With help from NewIntelligence, Arani implemented a suite of analytics software that not only met Arani’s current needs but also allowed for the company’s continued growth. Knowing Arani’s team was not fully armed with an IT department, NewIntelligence identified the following top priorities: data integrity, reporting efficiency, and self-service.

Building the Arani solution took just 68 days from kickoff to rollout. The new solution was adopted quickly companywide. Arani operations, executives, sales, and marketing teams now rely on the ability to create, schedule, and distribute custom reports daily.

Through the Arani experience, NewIntelligence developed the SAP B1 QuickStart analytics solution. Now, SAP Business One users facing similar reporting and analytics demands can take advantage of NewIntelligence’s SAP B1 QuickStart solution. Business professionals are equipped to create and analyze their own sophisticated SAP Business One reports and dashboards with little training and no help from IT.

We will demonstrate how you can save a significant amount of time manipulating SAP Business One data and be able to create reports on your own. As a result, management can make proactive decisions based on critical company data and avoid reactionary reporting.

We will show how NewIntelligence’s SAP Business One Quick Start analytics solution utilizes a suite of IBM Analytics software that provides operations, executives, sales, and marketing teams the ability to create, schedule, and distribute custom reports daily.

Digital Transformation: Why Should I Care?

Digital transformation: everyone and every business is hearing these words and instinctively knows they are important. Still, getting on the path, setting the stage for the future of business, and making the investments necessary to undertake this transformation are difficult decisions. What do others in our small-and-medium business sector think? What are others actually doing to stay digitally connected to their customers and supply chains? Are there real examples of artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning, or are they just talk?

Key Business Benefits:


  • Hear what others are saying.

  • Learn about working digital transformation examples.

  • Learn what others in the SMB world think is important.

CRM for More Than Just Your Sales Team: Managing Customers Inside and Out

Many organizations use CRM software to enable sales teams to track customer information and manage active deals. But customer relationships start long before the sales cycle begins, and they continue long after it ends. There are other relationships to manage in the business, too. What about key suppliers and ongoing activities with them? The accessibility of customer information among internal teams, including interactions and status, shouldn’t be ignored either.

When businesses ask about CRM, they often focus on sales and tracking active deals. But where do the deals come from? Increasingly, businesses are employing digital marketing to “fill the funnel” and are becoming more focused on tracking social media and website visitor behavior. Consider the possibilities if this information were directly accessible to the entire organization in your CRM system. This is possible today.

Connecting People and Process to SAP Business One

While small and midsize enterprises’ (SMEs) awareness of potentially transformative technology—such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, etc.—is increasing, one thing remains true: In many ways, most SMEs have still not fully leveraged the more fundamental power of connectivity, mobility, integration, and process automation within their organizations and ecosystems. As such, the businesses are also not fully leveraging the power of the source of truth they've invested so much in, the ERP (SAP Business One).

In this session we'll take a close look at a variety of situations within SMEs from different sectors of business where people, process, and SAP Business One were not connected. We’ll examine the problems that caused and the digital solution they deployed to get connected and the benefits they derived from it.

We'll conclude with tips for targeting areas to “get connected” and return hours to staff and management for higher-value activity.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Streamline and modernize employee, supplier, and customer interactions.

  • Replace old processes and interactions with preferred digital solutions.

  • Reduce costly errors, returning time to staff and management.

Workshop 2: SAP Business One Integration Framework: Making the Most of SAP’s Toolbox

In your growing business, it’s increasingly critical to have integration between your different systems and to automate data transfer between existing systems. To optimize daily work and to reduce data inconsistency, you must integrate different data sources.

How a Wholesale Distributor Doubled Its Efficiency with WiSys

Ram Products is a wholesale distributor of repair and maintenance products, offering the immediate delivery of managed product from mobile warehouses. Ram products had several operational challenges related to speed and accuracy in the operations of purchase order receiving, production, in-transit transfers, picking, and cycle counting. These processes were either slow, prone to errors, or required more than one person to complete these tasks.

To resolve these challenges, James Shotts, director of operations for Ram Products, chose to implement a warehouse management system (WMS) solution in the warehouse. Ram Products spent considerable time evaluating WMS solutions before selecting WiSys. The organization’s evaluation was based on how focused the WMS company was on SAP Business One, experience with HANA, ability to demonstrate the product, and cost.

This session will be a deep dive into RAM Products’ WMS transformation as James shares its journey that doubled efficiency, automated workflows, and decreased the number of times that product needed to be touched and validated by people in the warehouse.

Key Business Benefits:


  • Doubled efficiency in the purchase-order receiving process
