Steeb: kuehlhaus opts for SAP Business ByDesign

Internet service provider kuehlhaus, based in Mannheim, Germany, is yet another agency to opt for the SAP Business ByDesign solution. Steeb Anwendungssysteme took charge of the implementation.

In addition, the company – which currently has 35 employees– is planning to expand further. kuehlhaus first encountered SAP Business ByDesign during a customer project, when it linked a Web site to the solution using interface programming. The implementation kicked off in January 2011 and is slated to be completed by the end of the first quarter, giving 30 employees access to all applications.
