SAP Education Best Practice Award Honorable Mention: Uni-Select
Date: Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Time: 2:00 pm EST

In 2009, Uni-Select began a 24-month implementation of SAP ERP software in approximately 40 sites across North America. To reinforce more traditional training methods, Uni-Select created a Build-A-Car workshop, which involved small teams of employees building a child-size motorized car using a demo of the new SAP software functions, such as inventory, assembly, and billing processes. This successful gamification strategy succeeded in high levels of employee enthusiasm and rapid adoption of the new system.
