Customers About ORBIS

‘Most of what We Learn, We Learn from Our Customers.’

Charles Lazarus

‘ZF has been working very closely with ORBIS, both nationally and internationally, for a very long time. For our SAP ERP rollout, we both decided on a somewhat unusual approach for operational reasons, and began with the logistics side. For the rollout to be successful, great dedication, flexibility and mutual trust was required from both parties. ORBIS never let us down – even in the diverse follow-up projects such as the migration to ERP or the rollout in our foreign subsidiary companies.’

Dr Otmar Welzel, Manager of ZF Getriebe GmbH and Group Vice President of ZF’s Car Transmission Group

‘We manufacture products in a large variety of models, and ORBIS’s expertise and innovative solutions have helped us achieve enormous increases in manufacturing efficiency: a 70% reduction in throughput time and a 30% reduction in stock. Overall, we are now able to incorporate 75% of all special orders into the manufacturing process directly, without any manual intervention from the technical department. We are very satisfied with ORBIS as our long-term IT partner, and it plays an important role in our company’s success.’

Norbert Müller, Chairman of the Managing Board for Rittal GmbH & Co. KG

‘We worked with ORBIS to redesign our sales, production and logistics planning and our international supply chain, and to illustrate them via SAP SCM. A great number of the requirements, such as extensive automation for deliveries to the distribution centers, needed to be designed and developed from scratch, so we were both entering unchartered territory. Even in critical phases of the project, ORBIS consistently focused on finding definite solutions and implementing them with care. We would always recommend ORBIS as a skilled and reliable business partner.’

Dr Wolfgang Neumann, Senior Vice President for Solution Management Region 1, Paul Hartmann AG

‘We particularly appreciate ORBIS’s skills and experience in German–French SAP projects. ORBIS has experienced multilingual teams with outstanding SAP and sector-specific expertise. ORBIS uses both German and French consultants, making it well-versed with national differences. Projects can be completed without any cultural or communication barriers.’

Ulrich Holzer, Principal for Corporate Controlling and Information Technology, Hager Group

‘We decided to work with ORBIS because of its excellent customer references, its many years of experience in CRM and PLM processes and its extensive SAP skills. We have come to value ORBIS as an IT service-provider that is geared towards finding solutions and providing good customer service, with consultants who possess outstanding expertise.’

Manfred Brillert, Head of Information Technology, hülsta-werke Hüls GmbH & Co.KG

‘We are currently working with ORBIS on roll out projects in 19 factories in 6 countries across Europe. We chose ORBIS because of its experience in national and international rollouts, its numerous international clients and its established multilingual project team. We were impressed with the company’s rollout strategy.’

Michael Rönneper, Director of Information Technology, Europe, Trelleborg Automotive Europe

‘ORBIS’s expertise in CRM and SAP is what makes it an ideal partner for successful rollouts and development of SAP Mobile Sales. ORBIS is able to successfully implement requirements that go beyond SAP application standards. ORBIS’s newly developed construction templates in SAP CRM Mobile Sales have enabled us to make our customer service workflows much more efficient.’

Gerhard Agena, Head of Computer Science, Hüppe GmbH & Co. KG

‘Our German–American projects are one area in which ORBIS’s consultants have greatly impressed us. They are skilled and have proven experience in SCM, they are multilingual and they display great commitment, completing projects without delay. We can look back on many years of successful collaboration with ORBIS, and continue to rely on their sound experience of specific sectors and their special expertise in the consumer products industry and logistics.’

Thomas Ochs, Head of Computer Science Department / CIO, Villeroy & Boch AG

‘We have been working on international projects in close collaboration with ORBIS since 1986. And not without reason. The close ties with the university guarantee innovative solutions that can be implemented in practice. At first, it was hard to believe that our company’s decentralized structure could be depicted in an SAP environment so perfectly, all the way through to the production stage. Ever since our first project together, ORBIS has impressed us with its expertise and practical project management.’

Otmar P. Schön, Managing Director, Hydac International GmbH

‘We value ORBIS as a long-term, flexible business partner with extensive experience in business intelligence and the consumer products industry. The Microsoft technology behind iControl makes it a future-proof investment. It has impressed us with its flexibility and exceptional value for money. The iControl analyzes help us to detect any problems early on and to react to them promptly. They have also led to much closer work with our sales representatives.’

Holger Voss, Head of IT/Organization, Schwarze & Schlichte Markenvertrieb GmbH & Co. KG

‘We use iControl to display and evaluate all of our statistics. iControl has enabled us to generate initial results rapidly and to be flexible enough to react to changes with ease. In addition to the good value for money, the skilled and experience ORBIS consultants have been a major help. We have worked with them to develop an outstanding data model: an investment that is still paying off to this day.’

Sven Albrecht, IT Project Manager, VK Mühlen AG

‘… being able to measure successes immediately has greatly increased our motivation when it comes to planning. For over a year now, we have been able to greatly reduce stock shortages for retail. This gives us more security in day-to-day business.’

Frank Kolz, Heads of Sales Administration, Wagner Tiefkühlprodukte GmbH

‘... our average plan variance for rolling monthly forecasts is 3–4%. This means that we are closely in tune with the real situation.’

Klaus Virnich, Manager, CFP Brands Süßwarenhandels GmbH & Co. KG
