Founded in the late 1940s, Henelit is one of the largest manufacturers for paints and lacquers for wood and metal preservation in Southern Austria. Henelit has branches in all Austrian states, three foreign subsidiaries in Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary and over 180 employees. Up until 2003 Henelit was using "Comet", an outdated ERP software, based on an individually developed company IT. The old system was no longer being further developed and Henelit was forced to look for a new ERP solution. The company wanted a future-proof, easy to customize and multilingual system that was centrally maintained. abas meets these requirements. Delivery reliability, transparency and ability to provide information has increased since implementation of the ERP system. The software is also continuously optimizing production, which leads to reduction of stock levels and quicker production processes.
