Illinois Brick Company
Enterprise Mobile Solution Delivers Secure BYOD Using SAP
The Illinois Brick Company is the leader in brick distribution, catering to residential and architectural customers. As one of the largest independently owned and operated brick and masonry supply companies in the U.S., it offers the widest selection of brick from the largest and most respected manufacturing partners in the U.S.
Illinois Brick had the vision of leveraging its three-generations-old version of SAP to provide their field sales representatives with mobile access to orders and inventory data – without paying expensive system and contract upgrades. The company was also looking to the future and needed a solution that was flexible enough to grow with the needs of the company – which to them meant avoiding a tight coupling between the mobile device and SAP.
In approximately one month, SPR Consulting and Sitrion delivered an employee communications app that provided Illinois Brick with the solution they needed for their reps on the road – now and in the future.
