‘Nothing done by halves’: the motto both partners abided by.
Whether logistics consulting, SAP consulting and development, project management, system setup support, or going-live support in a sweltering, 1200º oven: the status c team weren’t bothered by complex requirements or adverse circumstances. All areas from purchasing to production, from warehouse to shipping and sales, were converted to S/4HANA — including the integration of an embedded EWM for production supply and picking. Meanwhile, the specialists from Suportis AG in Ludwigsburg were hard at work for the Finance and Controlling area. They implemented the modules, trained the employees, and took over the follow-up support.
Great project success needs great teamwork.
At Wendel, as in every industry, what really counts is the right chemistry. A mixture of flexible, pragmatic, direct feedback and constructive criticism were needed — especially to address the operational area. And this is what every discussion and idea received. For Wendel’s employees, who had previously operated with completely different workflows for many years, this change represented a formidable challenge, but their wishes and comments played a major role in the process planning. Through intensive, on-the-job training, Wendel’s staff were safely prepared for the new and fully integrated system, interface, and process flows.
