With more than 60 years of experience in plastics and tool manufacturing, Karl HESS GmbH & Co. KG is a go-to partner for custom solutions. The family business serves various industries, such that HESS parts can be found not just in air conditioners, heating units, or household devices, but also in the interior of almost every Audi model.
What began as a one-man-show in 1950 is now a team of 550 employees who deliver a high degree of flexibility, quality and reliability. Quick, strong growth made it necessary to implement a new business software in 2014. The previous ERP system was no longer upgrade-compatible due to extensive customizations and many essential functions and automation options were missing. Almost all of the functions Karl HESS were missing are included in the abas ERP standard release, and that was just one of the reasons to choose the Karlsruhe-based software.
abas ERP also helped simplify and shorten business processes at HESS as well as significantly increase automation, particularly in the area of EDI.
