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.


“We selected SPR Consulting and Sitrion to help us meet our goals because they brought their depth of expertise with SAP and mobility without the hefty price we were being quoted by other solution providers,” said Scott Braafhart, IT Director at Illinois Brick Company. “They not only delivered a solution for the long term, but they also provided us with high-quality mobile access very quickly to help us be highly competitive.”
