Share this article:

Sport Chalet will implement a finance and merchandising system from BearingPoint Inc. that will let it establish a unified platform for Web- and catalog-based multichannel selling and distribution.

Sport Chalet, a $350 million regional specialty sporting goods chain with 45 stores in California, Nevada and Arizona, wanted an integrated system to provide visibility of key metrics to improve decision making and automate manual processes. The 10-month contract with BearingPoint, McLean, VA, covers the integration of the new SAP for Retail and mySAP ERP application throughout Sport Chalet's enterprise. SAP is a major provider of business software.

The company initially engaged BearingPoint in March to define requirements and select a new system that would serve as a foundation for its current operations and support store expansion and growth plans.

In addition to enhancing multichannel capabilities for Sport Chalet, Los Angeles, the new system will let the company's merchants, warehouse personnel, vendors and management analyze and research data more effectively for better inventory control.
