The core competence of DÜPERTHAL Sicherheitstechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Karlstein am Main, which is part of the Hanning Group in Oerlinghausen, is in certified system solutions for process-optimized, secure storage of hazardous substances in safety cabinets. Bringing together research, development, production and full-service, the company's 90 employees offer their customers tailor-made solutions for a wide variety of requirements.
Expanding the business growth and being closer to customers require more standardized processes, mobile connections for employees and support through defined workflows. Based on these requirements, the management decided to implement the Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP solution for the future. Mapping the processes in standardized software and securing the investment and future use were decisive factors in the choice of theERP solution, with the goal of creating a basis for a long-term guarantee of economic development.
The COSMO CONSULT Group, the leading Microsoft partner for Microsoft Dynamics in Europe, was chosen as the implementation partner. The proximity of COSMO CONSULT’s branch in Münster, the size and experience of the software house, as well as the variety of self-developed industry and special solutions were factors in this decision. The first project step then consisted of reengineering the ERP system used at Düperthal to a current Microsoft Dynamics NAV version. Further parts of the company are planned in the next steps.
The close collaboration between management, COSMO CONSULT and key users produced a very standard-compliant solution, in which new requirements were also implemented. It was possible to avoid extensive customizing, above all because due to the rather large jump from the previous version to the current release numerous new functions were available. Further implementation in the other companies of the Hanning Group also facilitates future interactions between the group partners as well as facilitating cross-company reporting, analysis and consolidation.
