Case Study

Sporting Goods Manufacturing – Compliance Labeling with SAP Integration

About the Company

Sporting goods equipment manufacturer keeps moving with barcode labels that integrate with SAP and support online operations.

A global leader in sporting goods equipment markets many products under various brand names. Products are distributed by sales representatives and independent distributors throughout the world with a focus on building the company’s leadership position and market share. The company consulted with Peak Technologies for a barcode printing solution that fully integrates with SAP to keep products moving worldwide.

Business Challenge

The company had an existing BarTender labeling platform with SAP integration that serviced one of its sporting equipment divisions. During that implementation, issues occurred that impacted the business. The company needed a reliable and experienced consultant who could support the implementation of a BarTender-based printing solution that integrated with SAP – and also support another one of its divisions that needed printed UCC shipping labels.

The Solution

Peak Technologies, as a Certified Enterprise Partner with Seagull Scientific, designed and tested labels for up to 11 customers with compliance specification requirements and mapping to data files fed by SAP. Additional configuration of the SAP Commander – a file commander used directly within the SAP system – was also required for adding a new division and making it transparent to the existing implementation. Finally, Peak Technologies provided configuration, testing, and go-live support (both remote and onsite) to help bring the sports division online.

The Result

The existing integration techniques were re-used, reducing integration costs for adding the new division’s support from SAP. The company also realized the benefit of having a reliable and experienced consultant. Other benefits include:

  • Tested solution that works in real-world application
  • Expedited solution with no integration issues
  • Supporting new business division by making it transparent to existing users

Peak-Ryzex is now
Peak Technologies

The last few months have been incredibly exciting for our organization.  In early April, we changed ownership to Sole Source Capital, an experienced private equity company focused on the industrial services market and committed to our growth. With Sole Source’s support, we have added tremendous capabilities, resources, and industry expertise to the Peak portfolio through the acquisition of three companies in the last 60 days. 

Along with these exciting developments comes a renewed sense of commitment and purpose. To celebrate this exciting new chapter, we wanted to use this opportunity to reflect on our past, while looking forward to the future.  We are extremely pleased to announce that we have changed our company name to Peak Technologies, Inc. 

For many of our long-time customers, this is a return to the company name that had been in place since our founding in 1981.  When we merged with Ryzex in 2011, we combined our names to symbolize the union of two industry leaders.  But over the last few years, we have become ONE Peak, added additional capabilities, battled through a pandemic together, and feel that the time is now to re-brand the company as we look forward to the future.
