YOKE Industrial Corporation
Manufacturing, Supply Chain
SAP Supply Chain Management
With 70 outlets worldwide, YOKE is internationally known for the quality, safety, and technology it brings to the development, molding, forging, machining, heat treatment, and finishing of its products. Its consistently sound operations are certified in at least six countries.
Since its inception, YOKE has targeted high-end markets for its products. However, after the financial “tsunami” that hit world markets in 2008, Steven Hong, president and CEO at YOKE, rethought the company’s approach to its markets. He decided to transform the company based on what he described as a “high-quality and inexpensive, fast-in, fast-out” strategy.
As part of its due diligence, YOKE carefully analyzed the cost structures of its previous production systems before introducing the new solutions. At the same time, the company adhered closely to the best practices supported by SAP – an important success factor in itself. The professional assistance provided by the SAP advisory team and the resulting reduction in unnecessary customization also contributed to the on-time and within-budget implementation.

YOKE is well along the path to success. The company has put into place a strong, stable, integrated IT platform, improved its overall production capacity and management efficiency, and transformed into one of the leading manufacturers of its kind worldwide.
Following the introduction of SAP Mobility, YOKE hopes to benefit from the convenience and immediacy it provides, which will further facilitate their business.
In the future, the company will use SAP HANA to provide all product sales–related data analysis to its business staff, at any time and from any location.
