06 March 2012

Shared solution map created for the metal and scrap trade

Implico GmbH (Hamburg) and itelligence AG (Bielefeld) today announced their nationwide German partnership targeting customers in the metal and scrap trade. The venture is driven by a shared solution map, which the two SAP consulting companies have drawn up together. The two partners will be presenting their joint SAP industry solution during CeBIT (6–10 March, Hannover, Germany) at itelligence's booth C25 in Hall 5.

With this partnership, Implico and itelligence both combine their SAP strengths and expertise while pooling their industry and process know-how. Customers benefit from even more comprehensive consultancy services and from a co-designed, all-in-one SAP solution that offers the complete function set needed by the metal and scrap sector for the efficient control of its business processes.

These tasks are further complicated by the need to procure raw materials both on time and at a fair price, since metals are subject to constant price and currency fluctuations. In this sector, companies can prosper only by keeping their processes flexible and their costs under control.
To answer this need, the two SAP consulting companies Implico and itelligence offer their shared wealth of experience plus an integrated and fully-featured SAP-based solution for mapping the complex processes involved in metal recycling. Key process improvements are seen across the board, from goods receipt via the various topic areas relating to waste management law, metal assessment and analysis management to SAP-integrated risk and hedge management based on a powerful metals register.

Torsten Peter, Managing Director of Implico GmbH: "The Implico and itelligence venture is a partnership of SAP experts. Our shared solution map offers our clients first-class advice, plus solutions that significantly reduce project costs by matching the customer's individual workflows."

Dr. Andreas Pauls, member of the Management Board of itelligence AG: "The integration of our two solution and product strategies creates an end-to-end SAP solution catering to every aspect of the metal and scrap trade."
