Retailers see real value in working with Software AG
Abercrombie & Fitch
This leading retailer says its services engagement with Software AG was the best holiday-readiness money IT has ever spent. Software AG conducted load and stress testing on a business-critical system, brought in R&D to resolve a configuration issue and got the solution into production one week ahead of schedule. As a result, Abercrombie & Fitch was able to make every call center connection to its ordering system without issue on the biggest demand days of 2012.
“The consultants were very quick to respond, very professional and very knowledgeable on their products and their advice for a solution.”

Using the webMethods integration platform, 7-Eleven is experiencing dramatic benefits in both its demand chain and internal operations. Thousands of invoices per month are now exchanged electronically with suppliers and synchronized automatically with the company’s financial applications.
“We view the webMethods product suite as a primary infrastructure piece for 7-Eleven...It is central to our strategy to improve business processes, provide real-time analytics and to integrate disparate IT systems."
Keith MorrowVice President of Information Systems
Leading Asia-Pacific fashion retailer Bossini deploys new applications and processes faster and quickly brings new partners on board using the webMethods suite. Factory order allocation has reduced from three days to one. Finance month-end closing was slashed from 25 days to seven. Developer and IT productivity is up 30 percent.
“The webMethods ESB is something that we treat as a ‘must have’ within our IT infrastructure; the absolute foundation for our IT road map.”

With webMethods BPMS, Dean Foods built a master item synchronization process for consistent data use across 32 business units. The results: lower overhead, reduced VAN transaction fees and the ability to introduce a new item to market five times faster.
“Implementing an enterprise-wide process has changed the culture of the company to work together to serve the needs of the customer. Customers can understand and purchase from us in a timely manner, and have the ability to react to what we are sending them in a more efficient way.”
