Exciting projects for the IT department
We provide a proactive approach to problem solving because we are more likely to help you avoid problems than to fix them. For this reason we carry out regular health checks of your system. We proactively monitor and optimise your IT performance. In close collaboration with your internal IT staff, our support experts can identify potential IT issues and help solve them before they become business issues.
Over the last ten years, the company's growth has accelerated once again: In 2008, Safety Control GmbH was acquired in Mühldorf, and in 2013, Böhnke + Partner GmbH in Bergisch Gladbach. From 2013 to 2014, a new production site in India, a new logistics centre in Wuppertal and a building complex with expanded production and storage capacities for the production site in China were created. In 2016, Schmersal founded the new business unit tecnicum for services and at the end of 2017 a subsidiary in Japan.
A coordinating, unified management team for all SAP services
By 2017, the ten employees in the central IT Services department in Wuppertal, supported by a number of Indian colleagues, were in charge of all the systems and users of the group. In particular, the company's SAP solutions tied up a large proportion of its IT resources. Schmersal uses numerous SAP products, including SAP ERP for business process control, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) or SAP Netweaver Business Intelligence (BI, formerly BW) warehouse management software.
In April and May 2014, the German-speaking SAP User Group (DSAG) e. V. interviewed 389 members on the topic Maintenance/Service & Support. Key findings are: The use of Standard Support and Enterprise Support remains the same in German-speaking countries. Enterprise Support requires more information about the benefits. DSAG members are largely up-to-date with their ERP systems. Over half use the latest versions of the Enhancement Packages. DSAG Survey SAP SupportThe relationship between Standard Support and Enterprise Support is, as in previous years, almost balanced. Austria deviates here with a significantly stronger use of Enterprise Support. "In German-speaking countries, users deliberately choose a support model and stick to it. The value is stable over the last few years and the readiness to change is low," comments Andreas Oczko, DSAG's Executive Board Member Operations/Service & Support. Only two percent of the support experts surveyed rely on third-party providers. Without a maintenance contract, one percent of the participants will be paid.
