Folding Façades, Winter Gardens, and SAP

As a manufacturer of folding façades, winter gardens, glass canopies, balcony glazing, and commercial façades, SOLARLUX, which is based in Bissendorf, Germany, produces customized glazing systems that are sold in more than 50 countries.

“Our products are commonly customized for the buyer or made with a high degree of variation,” said Stefan Holtgreife, a senior manager at SOLARLUX. “These specifications will also apply to the SAP project.”

The company is replacing a heterogeneous system landscape that included several programs written inhouse with a company-wide solution based on SAP Business All-in-One, SAP NetWeaver Portal, and All for One’s industry solutions. All for One Midmarket AG will be responsible for the transition planned in 2009. Its Managed Services Center will also provide implementation services during the introductory period.

With the complete portal infrastructure and collaborative functions, SOLARLUX is aiming for simplified connections with its wide-ranging network of sales partners. The goal is to use the SAP system for integrated and cross-company collaboration, laying the cornerstone for successful growth.
