About Pankl Racing Systems AG

Throughout the years since the ERP implementation, the system did not only convince through its stability, but also grew with the company. Pankl has a high demand for software flexibility. The significance of the ERP system also grew for the management in the past years because key figures play a major role for the company listed on the stock exchange. Pankl adopts the key figures of all companies of the group from the individual clients into a management information system (business intelligence) and evaluates them. For a uniform group controlling, abas provides many options through the group accounting module, financial accounting, fixed asset accounting or Corridor Controlling.

We have very high requirements regarding the flexibility of the software as we have to cover very different business areas and processes, and because requirements often change—due to Pankl‘s growth. Generally, for example in the racing industry, we have to be prepared for very short development-to-delivery turnarounds. This requires exact, yet flexible, planning. We also need to realize extremely short processing periods in production. abas ERP provides optimal support.
