REV Group is the largest manufacturer of specialty vehicles with 16 manufacturing plants across America producing over 26 leading brands in RVs, Ambulances, Buses, and Fire Trucks. When the company decided to bring about a transformational change in its business, it chose SAP® S/4HANA to deliver the uniformity and efficiency across its diverse operations. REV also chose ThoughtFocus as the technology partner to drive the multiple SAP implementations across its various locations.
ThoughtFocus today announced two successful rollouts of SAP® S/4HANA at the Parts and the Bus divisions of REV. These deployments are part of a series of rollouts scheduled over the next two years. This success marks a significant milestone, since REV is the first greenfield implementation of SAP® S/4HANA Enterprise Management in North America.
S/4HANA was the platform of choice for REV Group as it is best suited to meet the demands of a high velocity business enterprise. The multi-phase project began with a fast-start implementation of SAP® S/4HANA at REV’s fiberglass manufacturing plant in mid-2016 followed by REV’s Parts organization that integrated GenSuite’s eCommerce solution.
Earlier this month, ThoughtFocus successfully completed an implementation at REV’s Champion brand of buses. This implementation transitions all the Champion business processes from the legacy system to SAP, including sales, production, purchasing and logistics, warehouse management, quality inspections, and finance and accounting. The solution uses elements of the SAP Vehicle Management System (VMS) and SAP Variant Configuration (VC) while leveraging standard SAP functionality and best practices throughout the end-to-end process.
