Concept2 Partners with abas-USA for Enterprise Resource Planning

The platform combines manufacturing and distribution into a single system, and eases inter-company transactions

Sterling, Va. July 25, 2014abas-USA announced that Vermont-based Concept2, a manufacturer of indoor rowing machines and racing oars, selected Abas-ERP as its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. Concept2 is expanding its operations into Europe and needed a global solution.

“We needed an ERP platform that would combine both manufacturing and distribution into a single system, make inter-company transactions between the U.S. and Europe easier, and promote our team-based environment,” said Lisa Washburn, finance director at Concept 2.
It was more than just the technology, however, that helped make the decision for the Concept2 team. “We liked the people we worked with at abas,” Washburn said. “Like Concept2’s culture, abas was more personal than some of the larger companies we talked to, and the abas team offered many ideas for a successful implementation."
“abas-ERP is a great choice for companies like Concept2 that have geographically dispersed locations and complex processes,” said Alan Salton, president of abas-USA. “The software is powerful straight out of the box, but because it is built for flexibility, we can adapt it to the unique aspects of each company’s way of doing business.”
