About the Project
PINTSCH BUBENZER GmbH – A Leading Manufacturer of Brake Systems
PINTSCH BUBENZER is a highly experienced specialist in brake system technology and was originally part of the Schaltbau Holding AG. At its german location in Kirchen highly skilled workers manufacture brake systems that meet the very highest standards of quality. The company develops series-production and customized brake solutions as well. Customers from all over the world profit from the huge product range. The company is regarded as an exceptionally high-quality manufacturer and also an innovator in its field. But the supplier for the port, mining, steel, wind power, shipbuilding and offshore technology industries not only is committed to deliver products that meet exceptional standards of quality, but also pursues a customer-oriented business – that’s the heart of the companies philosophy.
itelligence Application Management Service – Accelerating Daily Business
The brake manufacturer operates state-of-the-art production facilities and is organized according to the very latest logistical requirements. The IT systems of the manufacturer always meet the very latest technological standards. PINTSCH BUBENZER and itelligence, are pursuing one goal: Ensuring the high quality standards. That is why not only itelligence’s service processes in the field of AMS and Managed Cloud are ISO-certified, but also the brake manufacturer’s quality management processes. This means that customers can rely on the environmental awareness of both companies. This is also reflected in how they utilize their resources: itelligence deploys the new adiabatic technology at its data centers, so that Green IT is not just a fashionable buzzword. This ensures that the server rooms – in which PINTSCH BUBENZER’s systemas are hosted – are kept cool efficiently.
Carve-out from the Parent Company to itelligence Application Support
In cooperation with the itelligence experts the operational carve-out from the parent company was successfully completed. Because of the loss of the IT department of the Schaltbau Holding AG the manufacturer needed application support from itelligence. It was necessary to build up a new system landscape rapidly and from scratch again. After making a system copy and then separating all data belonging to the parent company, the carve-out was brought to a successful conclusion. This was followed by a seamless knowledge transfer from the consultants to the Application Management Service Team. Familiarity with the brake manufacturer’s processes meant that nothing stood in the way of a successful transition.
Further Development of the SAP Applications – Driving into the Future
Reliable system operation at the itelligence data center and rapid responses to SAP-related queries are just some of the benefits. In addition to the standard core business, it is also planned to develop applications that are not part of daily business operations. This includes preparations for the highly advanced SAP S/4HANA solution. The SAP HANA database formed the basis for the further implementation. Thanks to the collaboration with itelligence, a task that would present many companies with multiple challenges was completed with ease. The brake manufacturer also uses the itelligence it.x-press dispatch solution. So all in all, PINTSCH BUBENZER is not only a pioneer in brake systems but also in the IT field. Thanks to the Application Management Service, the company will continue to benefit from more than 30 years SAP experience.
