All for One Steeb AG launches worldwide unique industry solution for medium-sized businesses under SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management

New industry solution for SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management developed / exclusive business process library with over 120 processes / future-proofing for customers of All for One Steeb AG

Filderstadt, February 16, 2017 - All for One Steeb AG, a leading IT company and number 1 in the German-speaking SAP market, is paving the way to digitalization for midsize companies with its new industry solution. New customers of the IT system house can now use this solution to access a comprehensive business process library under SAP S/4HANA.

All for One Steeb's strategic decision to completely redevelop its proven industry solution for SAP S/4HANA is more than just a digital switch. The IT service provider is making full use of all the effects of the new SAP S/4HANA software generation, such as the Fiori Launchpad as a consistent user interface or the many innovations such as analytical KPI apps. "The new solution guarantees our customers absolute future security," says Ralf Linha, member of the management board of All for One Steeb AG. This plus in security distinguishes the SAP company from most of its competitors, who merely convert their industry solutions to the new enterprise management solution SAP S/4HANA. After all, it is questionable what happens to the customizing settings or user exits when importing future software versions.

Business process library with over 120 processes

In order to guarantee customers this extra security, not only was a new development developed, but the previous concept of rigid industry solutions was also questioned. "We are noticing that business in the industries is becoming increasingly diverse and complex," says Linha. Today, if an automotive supplier has a new process requirement that is usually at home in the consumer goods industry, it can be served from the All for One Steeb business process library and mapped in SAP without extensive customizing. The library, the core of the new industry solution, currently comprises over 120 business processes, so-called scope items, of the automotive, mechanical engineering and consumer goods industries, which the customer can access quickly and easily.

SAP S/4HANA forms the digital core

The introduction of SAP S/4HANA does not only mean that the customer decides to implement a new ERP or a new software generation, but rather that he lays the foundation for the digitalization of his company. The industry solution under S/4HANA Enterprise Management forms the digital core for all processes, information and services of a company. Meanwhile, it makes no difference whether it is the connection of an IoT scenario and the resulting machine data, an additional solution for file digitization or a support portal. The new solution also makes discussions about the appearance of the user interface a thing of the past: "With the new development, we exclusively offer the user a consistent Fiori user interface, a role and authorization concept that meets all security and compliance requirements, as well as modern digital user documentation in the form of tutorials," concludes Linha.

In future, business processes at the push of a button

In the medium term, All for One Steeb wants to offer its customers a 360-degree view of their company and processes at the push of a button via a new portal. Linha describes the future scenario as follows: "Soon, the head of quality management will go to our portal, see the status of his incoming goods processes, that his goods are flowing poorly and, with a click, select a new process from the library that optimizes his incoming goods zone and allows the goods to flow faster. With this portal our customer service will reach a new dimension".

17 March Day of Digitisation in Walldorf

On March 17, 2017, All for One Steeb AG is organizing a digitization day at SAP in Walldorf, Germany, where it will present the new industry solution to all interested parties and also provide basic information and best practices for digitization.
