Abstract Our IT consultant group, The Trisect, have been contracted by Unity Corporation (UC). UC is a mid size American company located in Greenville, South Carolina that provides a custom performance exhaust system for major car manufacturers. Recently, the U.S. economy has affected Unity Corporation in a negative way and became apparent after the first quarter numbers of 2008. Many of their manufacturing factories and offices were outsourced to cut the manufacturing costs. Unity Corp top management team tried to save the company with different management tactics, including restructuring the Information Technology Department. We would suggest that UC use the System Analysis and Program Development (SAP) software enterprise to restructure the IT Department as well as to cut the costs for a long run. We will explain to the Unity Corp Management team about how effective the SAP enterprise software suite is and the advantages of using Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software which comes with SAP. We will also demonstrate how SAP can be used for different department for instance it can help with the Manufacturing, Accounting, Customer Service, Management, Engineering, and even in the Shipping Department(s). Our restructuring of Unity Corp will absolutely be successful as a result of our solid planning, cost analysis, and the previous success stories about using SAP software. Our consultant group will introduce SAP Customer Relationship Management, SAP Enterprise Resource Planning software, SAP Product Life Cycle Management, SAP Supply Chain Management, and SAP Supplier Relationship Management to Unity Corporation.
