Torelli Races for the Finish Line

Team Torelli is tensing for the final assault. As you read this, CEO Todd Linscott and his small crew of hardworking Torelli Bicycle Co. employees are huddling with small-business implementation experts for Navigator Business Solutions, who have flown in to finally flip the switches on Torelli's new production ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution from SAP.

Team Torelli is tensing for the final assault. As you read this, CEO Todd Linscott and his small crew of hardworking Torelli Bicycle Co. employees are huddling with small-business implementation experts for Navigator Business Solutions, who have flown in to finally flip the switches on Torelli's new production ERP (enterprise resource planning) solution from SAP.Just days ago, Greg Woodward, Navigator's project leader on the SMB technology makeover project, filed this video report on last-minute preparations for Torelli's business systems transformation.

"We are in the final stages now of actually going through and prepping the site for it to go live," Woodward explains. The tension is palpable, as even Greg's "lovely sidekick Zara" demonstrates her readiness to break away from her role as the family dog to lend a paw to this exhilarating enterprise.

"Now that [Torelli has] had the opportunity to actually interact with the sandbox test site, I'm starting to migrate data over from that sandbox environment to what will be their production environment, ultimately," Greg explains.

Stay tuned as we learn details of what's in store - literally and figuratively - for Torelli's retail business as it makes the final transition from its old single-purpose accounting system to a state-of-the-art ERP environment that provides real-time, end-to-end business visibility.

What do you think will be Torelli's biggest gain from implementing an SMB ERP solution from SAP? Will it be the ability to support foreign currency exchange rates right out of the box, or the easy access via software as a service (SaaS) availability of integrated accounting, customer management, inventory management and more? And once Torelli goes live with its new implementation, will Greg finally have time to play ball again with Zara?
