Bernardo1946® – Revolutionizing Footwear Retail with Seamless Integration
Pioneering Footwear Excellence

Founded in 1946 by architect and best-selling author Bernard Rudofsky, Bernardo 1946 revolutionized footwear with its iconic Bernardo sandal, liberating feet from the constraints of 1940s footwear. With nearly 70 years of history, Bernardo’s designs epitomize luxury and style. Seasonally launching innovative collections, the brand remains dedicated to inspiring modern women. With a commitment to tradition, innovation, fashion, comfort, quality, and sustainability, Bernardo 1946 looks towards a future defined by its enduring legacy and contemporary vision.

Operating in the dynamic footwear space, Bernardo manages its expansive web business and web store, employing Shopify as the front end and SAP Business One as the robust ERP backbone.

Challenges Down the Road
Before integration, Bernardo grappled with challenges in integrating their Shopify frontend and SAP Business One ERP. The previous third-party applications they were using were falling short of meeting the expanding goals of the brand, offering limited customization options and lacking any real-time synchronization capabilities. Critical business processes and elements like inventory updates, returns, and credit memo synchronization were not efficient, and operations were hindered. The evolving business landscape for Bernardo 1946 demanded a more efficient integration solution as the manual order fulfillment process strained resources, even in the earlier stages of the company’s growth.
