CUSTOMER: Surf Hardware
INDUSTRY: Wholesale / Manufacturing
PRODUCT: Sage Accpac ERP


Targeting the hardcore surfing market, Surf Hardware is experiencing substantial growth, and has ambitious ramp-up plans over the next couple of years, particularly in emerging European markets. Its patented removable surfboard fin system, Fin Control Systems (FCS), is dominating the global market, with the majority of new surfboards now using this innovative technology.

With such exciting developments came typical multi-office and expansion issues such as delayed and cumbersome reporting and data duplication or loss. To combat this, Surf Hardware determined it needed a single business management platform that would provide a strong and flexible infrastructure for its growth, and streamline and consolidate its operations, but not require investment in unnecessarily duplicated resources.


Surf Hardware has matched its business know-how and innovation with the hosted Sage Accpac ERP solution. When the solution is fully rolled out, any authorised Surf Hardware executive will be able to access the business system via a secure internet connection – from anywhere in the world.
