QSC Looks to Process-oriented IT Systems for Further Growth

IDS Scheer is also using the consulting solution ARIS Value Engineering, which ensures that the corporate strategy of QSC AG is reflected not only in the business processes, but also in the configuration of the business IT systems. In future, QSC AG will optimize its processes throughout the company using ARIS. Due the rapid growth of QSC AG in recent years, some commercial IT systems are stretched to their limits in terms of performance. In order to safeguard the further development of the company using IT, QSC AG is beginning by implementing mySAP ERP in the areas of Finance and Procurement by November 2006. Its implementation partner, IDS Scheer, is using ARIS for SAP NetWeaver to configure the new system so that it is able to support the necessary business processes.
IDS Scheer consultants are carrying out the implementation according to the ARIS Value Engineering (AVE) method. They can therefore be sure that the strategic business targets of QSC AG will be reflected in the optimized future processes and ultimately also in the ERP system. “The use of AVE is intended to ensure that the IT systems can keep pace with our strategic growth targets,” says Markus Metyas, Chief Financial Officer of QSC AG. “We are optimistic that we can exploit the further potential of our internal processes using business process management based on the ARIS Platform from IDS Scheer.” That is why the Quality and Process Management department has decided to use the products of the ARIS Platform. This will enable other specialist departments besides Finance and Procurement to be analyzed and it will be possible to optimize cross-departmental processes throughout the company in future.
“I’m glad the management of QSC has taken the decision to improve processes throughout the entire company in future with the aid of the ARIS Platform. This is a result of the implementation of the new ERP system in accordance with the process-oriented AVE method, which is already promising to be a great success,” emphasizes Helmut Kruppke, CEO of IDS Scheer AG. The Cologne-based telecommunications company QSC AG has one of the largest DSL networks in Germany and primarily offers corporate clients a wide range of linguistic and data services right through to complex solutions for broadband communication such as company networks (VPN) and managed services. In the medium term, QSC aims to become one of the top three German providers of telecommunications solutions for corporate clients. The company, which is listed in the TecDax, currently employs over 650 people following its recent acquisition of Broadnet AG.
