In order to see all important business resources at a glance, Binder+Co depends on a reliable, modern and flexible ERP system. Moreover, the longevity of the machines and plants requires that all information from construction to disposal is always available. The data from abas forms the basis of an efficient life cycle management for this purpose. Important criteria which can be fully fulfilled by abas are the multilingualism of the software and the ability to work with different currencies. Another plus is that the software can be run using the Linux operating system. Another example of this is the ISO certification procedure, which would not have been possible with the old system. One issue which is generally critical when dealing with ERP systems was already taken care of: the software upgrade went smoothly, individual adjustments remain.
