Two Sisters, same Partner

Honasco and Rollax are two automotive component suppliers headquartered in Germany. Honasco Kunstofftechnik manufactures injection molding components and complete systems, while sister company Rollax produces and sells mechanical ball-bearing systems for gear box, chassis, seat, and steering column components.

The two organizations used to operate a software solution combining MPMS (OSY), Varial, and Microsoft Navision. But now they have opted for SAP ERP, which enables them to both access the same data basis and perform cross-company analyses of their business processes.

SAP partner Steeb Anwendungssysteme took charge of consulting and implementation. After just three months, the application for financials and controlling went live, and one month later, Steeb partner KWP Kümmel, Wiedmann + Partner implemented the module for human resources. Some seven months from the start of the project, employees had the remaining applications for materials management, production planning, sales and distribution, quality management, and warehouse management at their fingertips.
