Today’s Hydrel AG was sold by the Schaeffler Group to Wisi’on Holding at the end of 2016. This change meant that, as of May 1st, 2017, the existing SAP system and the IT infrastructure of the Schaeffler Group was no longer available.
The primary goal of Hydrel AG was, therefore, to launch a new ERP system on time and without any interruptions to production. Based on the existing requirements, the management decided to install SAP once again and commissioned Innflow with private cloud hosting and with the planning, implementation, and ongoing support of the new solution.
Innflow’s project method, which can be flexibly adapted to fit medium-sized companies, is SAP-certified and guarantees smooth and reliable project implementation.
Biosynth AG, a company headquartered in Staad (SG), Switzerland, was using the standard software SAP ERP ECC 6 EHP 7 to manage its business processes and provide administrative support. It was not yet utilising SAP NetWeaver Gateway or Web Dispatcher.
Biosynth was, however, already using the SAP module for warehouse management (WM) to oversee its storing positions. It employed batches to manage all of its inventory, and all of the inventory in WM was mapped by means of handling units. This enabled the company to map its warehouse processes in a very precise and detailed manner. Tracking was possible at both the batch and individual handling unit level.
The processes at hand needed to be posted directly within Biosynth’s SAP system (through SAPGUI), which required a great deal of operational effort. The frequency of error and resulting support requirements were also considerable due to the highly complex processes and many steps involved in using handling units.
GF comprises three divisions: GF Piping Systems, GF Automotive and GF Machining Solutions. Through its products and solutions, GF fulfils several primary requirements in its markets, including efficient resource management, energy conservation and miniaturisation.
Not long ago, its production facilities in Seewis (Switzerland) were running a custom ERP system that involved a locally developed warehouse management component and various peripheral systems. GF then commissioned Innflow to help replace its warehouse system with the SAP modules PP and WM. The resulting implementation was carried out in close coordination with the SAP competence centre at GF Piping Systems based on the detailed requirements of its key users. Thanks to a mobile solution that makes it possible to process incoming and outgoing flows of warehouse goods and operate conveyor vehicles, GF’s employees can now go about their work with greater autonomy.
To enable the company’s assembly and warehouse personnel to handle orders on their own, Innflow took advantage of its extensive internal expertise and outstanding knowledge of the processes at hand in devising a highly integrated application.
For more than a century, Landis+Gyr has been developing technologies that facilitate improved energy management. Its meters and energy management solutions enable utility companies and end consumers all around the world to optimise their energy efficiency, reduce their energy costs and make more sustainable use of related resources.
Before launching its «Optimus» endeavour, Landis+Gyr was already using the SAP module PS (Project Systems) to carry out its projects. In particular, its component reservation and delivery processes were mapped within the module. What PS failed to cover, however, was Landis+Gyr’s services in project planning and management, as well as in engineering. One of the main challenges thus lay in ensuring the high level of detail required in the company’s work packages and mapping task management in an integrated solution without sacrificing the application’s usability.
Here, Innflow succeeded in fulfilling the significant project management requirements at hand while making sure that the solution would be just as user-friendly as before.
