BATON ROUGE – The inaugural meeting of the Louisiana Chapter of the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group, or ASUG, will be held at the E. J. Ourso College of Business Education Complex on Monday, May 9.

The event is free and intended for all individuals whose companies either use SAP or are considering its use. It’s also an opportunity to connect with fellow SAP users and decision makers in the Baton Rouge-area for a day of education and networking opportunities.

The meeting will begin with registration and networking at noon and continue until 6 p.m.

Meeting topics include leveraging SAP as an agent of change, SAP and financials controls, and implementation stories from Community Coffee & Albemarle.

“Companies spend millions of dollars and invest years of effort to implement enterprise systems,” said Andrew Schwarz, professor in the Department of Information Systems & Decision Sciences. “I have found in my research that, oftentimes, companies struggle through the process, that it can take years to realize a return on this investment, and that the road to stability can be difficult and perilous.

“Opportunities such as this meeting are great for sharing experiences on effectively implementing SAP, avoiding the pitfalls and being able to learn how to leverage this investment for true organizational transformation.”
