Behr America, the U.S. subsidiary of Behr GmbH & Co. based in Stuttgart Germany, is a joint venture with DaimlerChrysler and a global supplier of climate control and engine cooling systems to the automotive and truck industry. “We chose itelligence, a partner on previous North American SAP solutions implementation projects, because our legacy systems would be integrated rapidly and affordably with a solution rich with automotive industry functionality,” said Frank Mueller, Behr America’s CFO.
itelligence migrated Behr Dayton’s accounting, procurement, projects and logistics systems from DaimlerChrysler legacy systems, 40 total, to mySAP Business Suite all within one year. In eleven months, itelligence Consulting successfully implemented mySAP Business Suite, in addition to SAP for Automotive, SAP’s industry specific solution for automotive companies. “SAP is proud to add Behr to its already large list of satisfied automotive clients in the mid market automotive supplier market place,” said Greg Mekjian, vice president of SAP for Automotive, SAP America, Inc. “The idiosyncrasies of the automotive supplier industry require the deployment of a fully integrated software solution that helps provide complete and proven business processes. SAP for Automotive fulfills this requirement by supporting the specific-business processes within all types of automotive companies, including original equipment manufacturers, suppliers, importers, wholesale and retail distributors, and service outlets.”
Prior to Behr Dayton, itelligence had implemented the mySAP Financials solution at Behr’s five other North American locations. Today, all of Behr’s users of SAP solutions, including the 400 at Behr Dayton, can enjoy the benefits of increased worldwide visibility and strategic decision-making.
