Peachtree Playthings Prepares for Expansion with BCG Systems and Business Process Review

UPublish story by Erin Lea

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 27, 2012 – BCG Systems, Inc., a provider of complete technology solutions headquartered in Akron, Ohio, today announced the completion of an in-depth business process review (BPR) for Peachtree Playthings, a fast growing multi-category company specializing in an array of affordable branded and licensed products ranging from stationery and art materials, to activity items and toys. The company, headquartered in Marietta, Georgia, started more than 20 years ago and has grown into an international operation with entities in the United States and Hong Kong.

As a privately held company, audited financial statements were never a requirement. However, as the company looked to grow and seek investment opportunities, they knew that pulling together consolidated financial data from their U.S. and Asian entities would prove challenging. With two main objectives in mind, the company sought a way to have all locations on one system that would provide the consolidated financial and sales data, as well as analytics, that they require, delivered in a very timely and accurate manner.

“BCG Systems’ recommendation was to go with NetSuite because it’s a cloud-based system,” stated Bob Creagh, CFO for Peachtree Playthings. “We are a small company with no IT department, meaning that when servers go down we don’t know how to fix it. When you utilize cloud-based systems like NetSuite, you maintain your infrastructure and give everyone access to business data no matter their location. ”

While the business process review conducted by BCG Systems brought with it an initial up-front investment, Peachtree Playthings viewed this as a small price to pay for ensuring the proper solution was selected. “We saw the value of this necessary step in the process and trusted that we were getting the best consulting advice for future success,” commented Creagh.

“What was very impressive with the BPR is how much the BCG Systems team got to know our business in the few short days they spent at our offices,” continued Creagh. “They know the systems. They know the people. They know where our shortcomings are. They know the process.”
