PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (May 25, 2006) — TBC Corp. has chosen software packages from SAP AG to consolidate its multiple subsidiaries onto a common platform, according to the software firm.
TBC, which operates retail and wholesale divisions as well as the franchised Big O Tires Inc. network, chose the materials to gain more insight into its core business processes and overall operations, SAG said.
“We realized that the business processes that we needed to implement were becoming more complex and the technologies that we currently have in place could not support them,” Larry Day, president and CEO of TBC, said in a SAG statement.
TBC selected the SAP for Retail platform as well as SAP NetWeaver. The retail package is aimed at increasing top-line growth, improving efficiency and managing the retail, wholesale and franchise businesses, SAG said. The NetWeaver package is designed to help the company share and consolidate business practices and processes to increase profitability and lower costs.
