Case Study

Relaunch of integrated demand planning

Fissler has been using Board for reporting and planning since 2004. As part of a comprehensive relaunch, the company once again opted for the programming-free tool and celver as implementation partner.

Our consultants therefore transferred the solution to the new board version, expanded and revised the individual planning modules, and networked the results with the upstream SAP system. As a result, Fissler now has an integrated demand planning system for optimal control of inventories and downstream processes.

The central data warehouse that is now in place provides flexibility to integrate more data in the future. Internal know-how for the adaptation of the solution as well as the very good cooperation with celver in connection with the current state of the solution, leads us to the conclusion that our integrated demand planning is a decisive factor for success and that it creates a clear competitive advantage for us.
