CUB Engagement Summary
CUB engaged with FAIR Consulting Group to initially help set up their Hybris system. We provided a number of services to support CUB in becoming digitally nimble across its marketing and commerce channels for B2B. During our engagement, we supported their global rollout of SAP Hybris Commerce and provided guidance to their global SI teams. We also worked to update their Hybris Commerce version to the new CCV2 version. CUB then asked FAIR Consulting Group to provide enhancement work on a number of commerce-related applications and features to better prepare for the large migration initiative. Finally, we provided support in the migration and transition from CUBs on-premise set-up to the SAP Cloud platform.
This project aimed to help reduce inefficiencies, clean up the outdated systems and deliver an “end to end” transition, which gave CUB more control of their SAP services.
We worked with CUB to support their global rollout of SAP Hybris Commerce, we conducted Quality Assurance work and Architecture advisory to ensure project goals were met on time. We also worked with their global SI teams to stay on track in regards to design, scope and project deliverables.
We conducted a series of different enhancements for CUB on SAP Hybris Commerce to prepare for the update and migration plan.
We helped with the design and implementation of below enhancements to CUB’s SAP Commerce based B2B customer portal:
- Stock labels
- Product Recommendations
- Shoppable search dropdown
- Bulk import through import cockpit
- Reporting and email improvements
- SEO improvements
We updated CUB’s Hybris commerce application to the latest CCV2 version in order to help prepare for the migration of on-premise to SAP Cloud Platform. This project was highly technical and used an agile scrum team to deliver. Once Hybris Commerce was updated, our team began the migration from CUB’s internal on-premise servers to the SAP Cloud Platform. This project helped CUB to become more agile and lower operating costs dramatically.
