CARE (Collaborative Renovation Application Enablement) is the first step towards readying for S/4HANA or simply achieving better business results, with what you have already deployed.

Testimonials

  • “At Allbirds, we implemented SAP S4/HANA Retail Merchandise Management and FICO, including integrations with multiple external platforms, on a limited budget and timeline. The Blue Marble team intuitively understood Allbirds’s start-up culture and rapidly iterated with us to successfully achieve more than our original goals while being on time and within budget. While we designed for long-term scalability, we are seeing project ROI within the first month of launch, providing us with global omni-channel and supply chain optics that will ultimately help us better serve our customers. Post go-live, Blue Marble has been attentive and swift in any assistance.”

    Head of Finance, Allbirds

  • “Blue Marble re-designed our SAP grants management module in a way that simplified our data maintenance and derivations while expanding our capabilities and control. Brian and Casey set up grant budgeting to meet both external donor’s detailed requirements as well as provided a road map to integrate with BPC. Now we have the necessary real time budget controls, security, and sponsor reporting to roll out hundreds of our global grants. With less maintenance during the life of a grant and less reconciliation during the end of that grant’s life, WCS is able to focus more on conservation. Do it right the first time, use Blue Marble for your new SAP ERP public sector implementation.”

We are extremely happy with our working relationship with Blue Marble and look forward to a continued relationship.”

  • “Blue Marble successfully implemented SAP HCM Payroll for me on a fixed price contract. Blue Marble worked with my team to determine our true requirements and then found the right high quality resources who delivered on time and budget. If you want a ‘no nonsense hands on’ firm that tells the truth about the product and design options, I highly recommend Blue Marble for any SAP services.”

  • “Since 2002 CPS Energy has contracted Blue Marble Consulting INC to assess our latest issues then develop a customized SAP Project Systems week long boot camp for my Substation and Transmission Engineer super users every two years. As a company that has been live on SAP for over 10 years, Blue Marble is who we call when we need spot ‘Best in PS’ Services. Blue Marble not only knows PS accounting integration to CIP and assets but also in depth logistics including PR integration, materials planning, configurable standard networks, resource capacity management and date scheduling.”

  • “Blue Marble’s unparalleled experience with SAP public sector solutions made a key difference in the selection of BearingPoint over a number of SAP implementers including IBM as our system integrator. The Johns Hopkins University and Health System sale was over $250 Million in licenses and services. BearingPoint included Blue Marble as part of their team in the interview phase of our vendor selection process. The experience and knowledge displayed by this team was a key contributor to the selection of BearingPoint to the Hopkins Project.”

  • “Blue Marble delivered public sector requirements as part of the BearingPoint team including: $1.2 billion per year in sponsored research project funding using the SAP Grants Management, leading Public Sector Integration design sessions across all teams, SAP end user security definition of 40,000 HR positions mapped to R/3, BI, SRM, & Portal end user roles and implemented HCM Benefits. Blue Marble consultants also were instrumental in conversion data and balances strategy, testing, validation and execution of over 450 master data, open item, and balance load files for a ‘non-eventful’ go live. I highly recommend Blue Marble for their attention to detail, leadership, and expertise in SAP public sector.”

He was a critical team member in the successful implementation of a $100 million Finance, Human Capital Management and Reporting system across the MSU campus.”

  • “Zita, Kevin and Colleen worked as our consultants on the SAP acquisition of Qwest Communications into CenturyLink. As a company that has been using SAP since 2000 and has worked with many other consultants, Blue Marble consultants are the best I have ever worked with because of their knowledge as well as ability to learn our internal systems interfacing with SAP and customization. These consultants are personable, caring and “fit” right in with us and worked well with our team. Sometimes the personal aspect of working on a project this size is overlooked, but in my group it is important. We are all still in contact, both from a professional level and personal. They will always be first in our search for consultants for our SAP projects.”

  • “Blue Marble was an invaluable asset to our SAP roll out of the Project Systems module for revenue projects and billing. Our organization had initially hired another vendor but because of the significant number of issues we experienced we hired Blue Marble to investigate the root cause of our issues. Within a very short period of time, Blue Marble uncovered improper configuration and missing business processes requirements that were communicated early on in the project. As a result of Blue Marble’s analytical and technical expertise we are now on the road to recovery! I would highly recommend Blue Marble to any firm looking to implement SAP if you are seeking the “Right First Time” approach.”

  • “I would like to thank Blue Marble for all their support, outstanding attitude and the team spirit. Having help with the execution of all Tests Scripts, Training, Data analysis and SOP writing and interfacing with Deloitte was the key for the site to meet all corporate requirements and “Go Live” on time.”
