Shoof needed a solution that could cope no matter how big they became. They chose SAP and Soltius

There are tools to help with calving and lambing, feeding and disease control. Having the right tools for such animal husbandry tasks can make farms more efficient and animals more productive.

Farming equipment company Shoof specialises in these hard-to-source items. During the past 15 years, the company - a successful family-owned business - has built up a catalogue of more than 8000 products.

For more than 10 years, the company had relied on a DOS-based software system, supported by a range of other packages – including MYOB for financials and a range of smaller Excel and Access-based programs – to manage its stock and purchasing activities.

After a comprehensive review, the company chose SAP Business All-in-One, and Soltius, in order to improve the structure of its operations; to increase efficiency and visibility; and to ensure that ongoing business activities could be closely monitored and documented.

Soltius worked closely with Shoof to establish whether the pre-configured aspects of SAP Business All-in-One needed to be changed to suit existing internal processes. Because of Shoof’s complex supply chain and large number of suppliers and customers, the software required some configuration, however around 80 percent was able to be used in its delivered form.
