The project team gets on very well with each other. We were also impressed by the solution-oriented approach and the ability of the entire project team to make quick decisions!"

Hubert Buchsteiner, Group Vice President Purchasing, ZKW Group
Success Story

“We knew that this was apsolut’s first project for a health insurance company, but that didn’t matter. Because apsolut always listened to us, understood our requirements and finally delivered solutions. We could design different processes for direct and indirect purchasing. Together we work professionally in state-of-the-art mode.”

Michael Spiess, Chief Procurement Officer, Sanitas Krankenversicherung
Success Story

“With a partner like apsolut, not even a pandemic is able to stop us! When the project started, we were a little skeptical, due to the fact that the project team was unable to meet face-to-face. But we are now delighted to say that all our concerns have proven to be unfounded.“

Chandrashekhar Saldur, AGM - Global Procurement & Projects, ETG Group
Success Story

"apsolut demonstrated a high degree of flexibility and commitment during the project. The structured working methods and the dedicated team enabled us to meet the urgently needed go-live deadlines."

Paul Trautmann, Manager Procurement Processes & Projects, Röhm GmbH
Success Story

"We have never regretted our decision to rely on apsolut as our implementation partner. The preparation, support, and transparent project progress at all times convinced us. We are delighted to have apsolut as our partner for all questions relating to our SAP Ariba tool."

Marcel Krischer, Zentis GmbH & Co. KG
Success Story

"apsolut impressed us in our project , particularly because of the open and cooperative partnership. The project team gets on very well with each other. But we were also impressed by the solution-oriented approach and the fast and efficient enablement of our support staff!"

Annette Römer, Project Manager at McKesson Europe
Success Story

"When selecting our implementation partner, apsolut was able to prevail over internationally active competitors thanks to its excellent understanding of our requirements, openness in partnership, and great flexibility. Thanks to the very good cooperation with the apsolut team, we successfully completed the project and signed a support agreement for future developments."

Julia Graubner, Senior Procurement Project Manager, K+S
Success Story

„apsolut not only guided us through the project with utmost professionalism and a proactive approach – decisive was the fact that apsolut enabled us to operate the new tool independently and to control the next steps ourselves. In addition, thanks to apsolut, we have been able to establish the right network, including with the right contacts at SAP Austria. The project has been an overwhelming success and we have managed to foster an almost friend-to-friend relationship with the apsolut team."

Gerald Goldgruber, Strategic Manager for Process Management and SAP, Frutura
Success Story

"As our experiences with apsolut were so positive across all national companies, we have already doubled the number of monthly support days twice. Thanks to apsolut, we now have the resources we need to implement rollouts in other national companies. At the moment, they are ongoing in Spain, Portugal, Italy, and France.”

Sandra Mancino, Application Consultant, C&A

Success Story

‘We’re on the right track to being able to take full advantage of the potential that this transformation offers, as apsolut not only gives us the expertise that we need, but also has an incredibly agile and committed approach. apsolut no longer feels like an external partner to me, but more like an internal department, with whom I hope we can continue to work well into the future.’

Dr. Bei Mortensen, IT Business Service Owner – SCM & Manufacturing, GEA Group
Success Story

"A transformation program of this scale needs a strong internal team from Procurement and Internal IT, but of course also experienced and committed external partners. The most important aspect is that everyone then works together with passion and conviction towards the common goal. In addition to the strong know-how of the consulting implementation partner – in our case apsolut – a strong line of communication from the partner to the software supplier SAP is also necessary."

Martin Traxl, Head of Strategy & Digitalization, OMV

"Being able to design our purchasing processes flexibly, digitally and above all efficiently offers great added value. We will therefore continue to expand our system in the direction of SAP Ariba."

Armin Kaczmarek, Senior Vice President Corporate Purchasing, Vorwerk
Success Story

"From the beginning of the project, we have made a remarkable change together with apsolut. The Döhler employees find their way through the easy user interface without any prior knowledge of SAP. As a result, our purchasing department is no longer an operational procurement office, but a team of in-house consultants."

Shibu Palakalodil, Projektleiter SAP Ariba-Implementierung
Success Story

“apsolut impressed us in the project work with McKesson above all through the open and cooperative partnership. The project team gets on very well with each other. But we were also impressed by the solution-oriented approach and the fast and efficient enablement of our support staff.”

Annette Römer, Project Manager, McKesson Europe AG
Success Story

"apsolut has been supporting us in the ope-ration of our SRM system for 10 years. It does not matter whether we report a problem in the production system or want to discuss change requests. We are contacted by apsolut in a timely manner to resolve our concerns or discuss our requirements in detail. apsolut always provides the important piece of securi-ty in the background - if anything goes wrong, they always help quickly and straightforwardly."

Torsten Enseroth, SAP S/4HANA Solution Architect, Friedhelm Loh Group
Success Story

"Of course, we are immensely proud of how we implemented this complex transformation together. The always competent and more than punctual execution moved us to initiate a parallel project for partial process innovation in the ongoing project. Actually a no-go, but with apsolut no problem! With this positive experience, it was easy for us to initiate another project, which is currently being implemented. One thing remains to be said: Without the team around Bodo Hempelmann, this journey would definitely have been more difficult!”

Manuel Steffen, Project Officer Source-to-Pay, Evonik Industries
Success Story

"Together with apsolut, we started as a pioneer in Central Procurement and we are very pleased that we were able to reap the first fruits of this pioneering work so early on.”

Stefan Ehrhardt, Head of SAP Governance Purchasing, MAHLE
Success Story

„We were looking for a specific solution that did not exist yet. We didn’t want to compromise. So we looked for the right partner to model a flexible tool so that we could configure the specific processes ourselves. We used our expertise and creativity to make Squando our global supplier management tool.“

Ketylin Morello, Purchasing Strategy and Market Intelligence & Functional Product Owner for Squando, Schaeffler
Success Story

"Although personal contact was very limited due to Corona, a strong team formed during the intensive project phase. The decision-making paths at BITZER and apsolut were always short so that issues could be dealt with promptly and the planned go-live date achieved. The home office was not an obstacle, but also gave us the necessary flexibility for a project of this size.

All team members have done a great job, I have rarely worked so well with a consulting firm!"

Steffen Bauer, Project Manager, BITZER
Success Story

"When selecting a partner for our procurement transformation, a high level of technical know-how was of course also important to us. Here, apsolut was able to convince us with best practices from customers of a comparable size. The decisive factor in the end was the experience in change management! Only in this way were we able to introduce a fully-fledged procurement system that is also accepted by all employees."

Göktürk Simsekol, Digital Transformation Director, Flint Group
Success Story

“The cooperation with the international apsolut project team from Germany and India was very effective despite the tough schedule. Due to the high degree of standardisation and automation, we were already able to realise potential savings and, in particular reduce process costs.”

Markus Ortlieb, Director Global Procurement, ProMinent GmbH
Success Story

We were able to roll out Ariba very quickly, because we established a pragmatic and open culture of cooperation with the apsolut team from the very beginning, and we were prepared to systematically align ourselves with the standard“,

Sarah Eve Wiedemann-Geiß, who oversees purchasing and supplier management at Bausparkasse Schwäbisch Hall
Success Story

“In addition to the high level of expertise, what impressed me most about the apsolut team was the enormous commitment. We were very well supported throughout all stages and overcame all difficulties together”,

Anne Otto, Business Process Expert, Digital Solutions, JOYNEXT
Success Story

“We had many specific requirements and together with apsolut we found a solution for each one of them. We used to search for supplier information, now we do find it. We are really very satisfied!”

Tanja Sefrin, Project Manager, KUKA
Success Story

“For the new Ariba system, wewere able to onboard more than 1,400 users in three national subsidiaries with only little training effort. With regard to our Procurement processes, we have gained significant transparency and control.“

Jane Wanger, Global Procurement Systems & Support bei KSB
Success Story

„Every time we came up against an unexpected challenge during the course of the project, apsolut immediately showed up possible options to resolve the issue. We always knew to what extent we had freedom of movement within the constraints of the cloud solution.”

Linna Krasnikov, SCC System Administrator, Kärcher
Success Story

"The mix of virtual design discussions, system demonstrations and break-out sessions, supported by best-in-class tools that allowed us to annotate and track tasks and decisions during screen sharing, enabled us to work closely with apsolut even though distances of up to 12,000 kilometres had to be bridged. We were very pleased that both our projects could be successfully implemented with the help of apsolut."

Alina Aftene, Procurement Solutions Specialist, Delivery Hero

"With apsolut, we have gained a partner who has implemented our requirements effectively and efficiently in the configuration of Ariba in a practical manner and in a breathtaking amount of time. The customer-oriented approach was one of the main reasons why we also chose apsolut for the implementation of SLP and Contract Management."

Greater efficiency and transparency in Bruker’s tender bidding process

CompanyBruker
BranchHigh-performance scientific instruments and analytical diagnostic solutions
Number of employees7,500
Turnover2.4 billion US dollars
HeaquartersBillerica, MA, USA
  • Background

    Until the implementation of the apsolut eSignature Connector for DocuSign, Bruker’s signature process for quotes was cumbersome and lacked transparency. After creating a document in SAP, a PDF was generated to which an electronic signature was attached in a manual step. This meant that tracking the sign status was not straightforward. In the event of sickness or someone standing in for a member of staff, there was no simple method of checking if a specific bid had already been signed.

  • Application

    Initially, Bruker decided to implement the apsolut eSignature Connector for DocuSign for two of its companies, totalling an annual volume of around 5,000 bidding documents. The newly implemented process is scalable and can be rolled out to further companies within the group. To start with, the first signer maintained in the document receives an email with a link requesting them to apply their signature via DocuSign. Once all the signatures have been applied, the person initiating the signing process automatically receives a status update via email. The signed document and the Certificate of Completion are then automatically attached to the bidding document in the SAP Records Management. The sign status can be viewed at any time via the bidding document in SAP.

  • E-Seals on Invoices

    In addition, Bruker uses the eSignature Connector at its subsidiary in Portugal, where a legally binding electronic seal is now automatically attached to all billing documents.

  • Business Outcome
    • Significantly shortened process through automated workflow
    • Greatly reduced error susceptibility through elimination of manual steps and media discontinuities
    • Transparency due to possibility of viewing status at any time
    • 100 percent legal security

„With its intelligent toolbox, apsolut was able to implement all our individual requirements speedily. That enabled us to quickly start testing and boost efficiency considerably.”

Kirsten Müller, Senior IT Demand & Project Manager, Bruker Corporation

At GESOBAU, rental contracts are now signed electronically

CompanyGESOBAU
BranchHousing and real estate industry
Number of employees488 (2021)
Turnover316 million euros (2021)
HeaquartersBerlin, Germany
  • Background

    GESOBAU is a municipal housing company in Berlin, which manages some 45,000 residential and commercial units. The company had been thinking about an electronic solution for signing rental contracts for some time. The coronavirus pandemic and the social distancing it imposed gave them the final push to do something about it.

  • Application

    GESOBAU creates rental contracts in the SAP ECC system and transmits them to DocuSign. The tenants can sign their rental contracts entirely digitally after 2-factor authentication via SMS. The signed contracts are automatically returned to the SAP ECC.

  • Specifications

    To implement the eSignature Connector for DocuSign, the apsolut team entered uncharted waters, connecting the “Real Estate FX” module integrated in SAP ECC with the DocuSign cloud for the first time. At GESOBAU’s request, the implementation of the 2-factor authentication was incorporated into the connector standard and apsolut programmed a user-defined form input field.

  • Business Outcome

    Thanks to the automated process, GESOBAU was able to achieve significant time savings. In addition, they saved large amounts of paper, printer cartridges and postage. And there is a simpler onboarding process available for new tenants.

“Of course, the purpose of implementing a new software tool is to save money. But with the connector, there is more to it: The process of contract signing and digital archiving is now much faster for us than previously when it involved the postal route. The contract documents no longer need to be printed out and once the process has been completed, the rental contracts are automatically filed in the archive system. All manual activities have been eliminated.”

Sabine Klein, Information Technology – User Support Officer, GESOBAU
