WISE Leader – Robert Bolger – June 2017

Robert Bolger Vice President of IT – Phillips Van Heusen / Superba

Robert Bolger has been Superba’s Vice President of IT since 1986. Prior to that, Robert was the IT director of a company that was using the R4 ERP system. Superba’s president did a site visit and was so impressed with Royal 4 that he acquired the system. In 2007, Superba was purchased by Phillips Van Heusen, and Robert was tasked with evaluating other available ERP options to recommend for PVH. After tedious research on several systems Robert came to the conclusion that the best and most flexible solution available for PVH was the current R4 Enterprise ERP, making Superba one of Royal 4’s longest continuous customers at 31 years. For his dedication to Royal 4 Systems we are honored to induct Robert Bolger as the newest member of our elite coalition known as WISE Leaders.

Quote from Robert Bolger:

“I was certain that the right ERP solution would help us with our inventory control issues and process flow automation in our warehouse. Since implementing the Royal system our entire process was streamlined to meet high volumes, improve order fill rates and better serve customers.  We can truly better meet customer expectations with significant, accuracy and service improvements since implementing Royal 4. We are happy with Royal 4 Systems and have been a customer for over 30 years. Users like the screens because they have abundant data and they are fast. We interface with several systems such as EDI and Print and Apply. WISE also handles our shop floor processing. The working relationship we have with R4 is the best one we have when we look at all of our vendors.”
