    About Havaianas

    Havaianas (Alpargatas USA) is a New York based company that was established in 2007. They are a distributor of Havaianas flip flops, espadrilles, and sneakers across the US, with their manufacturing headquarters at Alpargatas S.A. in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    This trendy brand is popular with Hollywood’s stars and retail consumers alike. Due to recognition from the fashion world/growing popularity over the past few years, Alpargatas had to address a boost in sales, while keeping their staffing levels consistent.

    Because of this influx of interest in their products, Alpargatas realized they needed to find a robust solution that would handle their complex inventory management requirements, while at the same time being cost-effective.

    Alpargatas’s main focus, Havaianas, has a strong presence not only in the US, but in Europe and the Middle East as well

    Key challange
    • To deliver the breadth of product choice (color, style, size, etc.), Alpargatas needed to manage a high level of product complexity in order to satisfy their customers
    • Keep growing the company while being able to cost effectively scale expenses
    • Creating a specialized solution to integrate with SAP Business One and help manage the high level of data in their systems
    Summary
    • In 2008, Alpargatas began working with Third Wave Business Systems
    • Third Wave, understanding the best way for Alpargatas to run SAP Business One, recommended a solution from Argentis, which specializes in the footwear and apparel industry
    • Third Wave & Argentis worked together to develop a detailed project plan to easily set up products with multiple attributes in the system
    • Repspark configured Alpargatas’s site to represent the complex orders placed by retail customers & Third Wave integrated the website
    Operational benefits
    • Alpargatas can now run their operations more efficiently with their data management solution based on SAP
    • They can keep resellers informed about new product lines & eliminate stockouts
    • Tighter overall integration – everyone, internally & externally, is more informed about the products
