86 users will then be working in the areas of sales, production, materials management, controlling, accounting and HR. In addition to the production sites in Riedlingen and Königshofen, the construction material retailers in Riedlingen, Ehingen and Ochsenhausen will also be connected.
By migrating to ERP, Linzmeier is investing in innovative technology. The aim is to further increase the competitiveness of both areas of the company by increasing IT integration. Linzmeier is relying on itelligence as its consulting partner, as the Bielefeld-based company also offers licenses, implementation and maintenance from a single source in addition to its consulting services.
The itelligence consultants will replace the old systems Brain-XPPS and DCW with the combined introduction of it.engine and it.trade in production, materials management, controlling, accounting and HR at both companies. The production department at Linzmeier Bauelemente GmbH will benefit from the introduction of variant configuration due to its wide range of products from installation systems and components for roofs, ceilings, walls and floors. This will enable entire facades to be designed quickly, elegantly and in line with specific customer requirements using a large number of components. In the specialist shops, Linzmeier Baustoffe GmbH & Co. KG will benefit from the online checkout in it.trade, which is directly integrated into SAP.
Marion Vieweg, Project Manager at itelligence: “Linzmeier can streamline its IT processes by combining retail and production functions in one system. The costs of non value-added processes within the business areas and the specialist shops can be considerably reduced in particular. Linzmeier can also now process and evaluate the complex processes of the two very different branches in a single system, which also means that they have better control.”
