New York, May 1, 2019 – Capgemini today announced it is working with Oracle NetSuite to help Max Finkelstein Inc. (MFI), a 100-year-old family owned and operated wholesale distributor of top tire brands including Goodyear, Bridgestone and Pirelli, migrate its on-premise enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to the cloud. By working with Capgemini and NetSuite, MFI will be able to take advantage of an integrated suite of cloud applications to enhance inventory availability and delivery services, automate manual processes and reduce IT complexity.
“We needed to rethink our technology infrastructure in order to meet changing industry and customer demands,” said Ira Silver, CEO and President, Max Finkelstein. “The combination of Capgemini’s deep expertise and strong implementation track record plus NetSuite capabilities will provide us with the insights and technology we need to successfully move our core business systems to the cloud. With this new implementation, we will be able to provide our dealers with the best products, training and business resources available to meet the challenges of today’s retail and wholesale marketplace.”
This new set up will enable MFI to streamline operations and gain a single view into key business metrics. By replacing its existing on-premise ERP system with an integrated suite of cloud applications, MFI will be able to eliminate previously manual and time-consuming processes and enhance financial reporting, sales and marketing operations. As a result, MFI will be able to enhance the customer experience and increase efficiencies across its business through better campaign tracking, analytics and reporting.
“The automotive aftermarket is facing drastic changes and disruption,” said Matt Haller, Oracle Go-to-Market Leader at Capgemini. “MFI is investing in the business for the long haul and we’re honored to be helping them with their journey to make proactive changes that will prepare them for the future.”
