SSA Global (NASDAQ: SSAG), a leading global provider of extended enterprise solutions and services, today announced the successful implementation of an extended SSA ERP solution at Hans Turck GmbH & Co. KG, a new customer in Germany.
Headquartered in Mlheim/Ruhr, Germany, Turck is a leading manufacturer of electronic components and solutions for industrial automation. In 2004, Turck decided to implement an integrated SSA ERP, SSA CRM and SSA eSales system, which went live earlier this year.
The SSA Global solution replaces a number of isolated applications and subsystems that had been implemented over the years and did not provide sufficient transparency and consistency.
SSA ERP now supports all purchase and sales processes. SSA CRM manages all customer data and allows for mobile connection of the sales representatives. SSA eSales provides a worldwide platform for real-time access to prices and inventory.
In the selection process, SSA Global had been short-listed together with four other software vendors. "We were looking for a new, integrated and future-proof solution that would support our processes and offer transparency worldwide", says Frank Schlieter, CIO, Turck group. Through all the stages of the selection process, SSA Global was clearly ranked first. The implementation of the new system went very smoothly, and the production and invoicing processes continued without the slightest interruption.
The new solution has seamlessly been integrated with the distribution center, which continues to be the leading system. Customizations were built to interface the SSA ERP solution with the distribution center software, processes and data formats. .
