" How PFC Brakes Regained Control of Its Future on AWS PFC Brakes needed to replace aging, unreliable inf rastructure to regain control of business-critical processes. Here's how the company built a stable and scalable system by implementing SAP S/4HANA on AWS. CASE STUDY Who is PFC Brakes? Performance Friction Corporation (PFC) Brakes is a leading manufacturer of brakes and parts for automotive motorsports, cars, motorcycles, fleets, trucks, buses, and emergency vehicles. PFC Brakes' products can be found on fleets throughout the country, including police cars in North America, NASCAR, and emergency response vehicles. The Challenge As demand for PFC Brakes' products continued to grow, its aging SAP R/3 solution could no longer keep up with the increasing pace of business. PFC Brakes struggled with decades of custom code, an insecure middleware vendor, and an SAP system that kept crashing due to faulty integration. Oftentimes, this meant rebooting the SAP system multiple times a day. This put significant strain on the company's small IT staff, who spent a majority of their limited time fixing recurring issues—time that could otherwise be spent building new products and processes. PFC Brakes felt the negative effects of its outdated system, which was starting to slow down weekly business-critical processes and transactions. To get ahead, PFC Brakes knew it was time to finally invest in a major SAP upgrade and move to a cloud- based environment that could keep up with daily demands. But with PFC Brakes' IT team already at capacity, making that kind of inf rastructure change seemed complex, resource intensive and outside of their expertise. By leveraging Navisite's (formerly Velocity) application expertise and managed cloud services solutions, we are no longer at the mercy of outdated systems. We are back in control of our future. Now, we have the infrastructure and resources to help us focus on what we do best—manufacture, sell, and distribute premium brake products."
