S&T provides SAP integration for MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG
Facilities in Austria and Poland to be refitted by 2011
The S&T DACH assignment is to take the existing SAP HR Global Template and roll it out in Austria and Poland, taking into account the local requirements in those countries. At the Steyr, Vienna and VTG Southern Region facilities in Austria, S&T DACH are implementing a strategy that will provide MAN Nutzfahrzeuge staff with a higher degree of independence when handling IT supported HR processes. A further objective is to replace the existing “Salzburger Lohn“ (Salzburg Salary) system and to ensure that the local team can, within a defined framework, independently undertake the local parameterization necessary for future day-to-day operations. In Poland, the reorganization will be carried out together with key users at the facilities in Krakow, Poznañ and Starachowice, as well as at the MAN Accounting Center and the sales and marketing headquarters in Warsaw. As in Austria, it will be ensured that the local teams can independently take care of the local parameterization in the mid-term.
The rollouts in Poland and Austria will be completed by 2011. MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG also has further rollouts planned for facilities in Great Britain, South Africa and Turkey. “The concept proposed by S&T DACH is very convincing. In addition, S&T provides the necessary local language support in Poland to enable efficient implementation of the project”, explains Joachim Dütz, Head of Personnel IT at MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG. Around 36,000 staff are employed at the 40 MAN businesses across the globe. The company has five production facilities in Germany and a further 170 permanent establishments, with approximately 20,550 employees. The businesses in Poland and Austria each employ 4,000 people. In 2007, MAN Nutzfahrzeuge sold more than 100,000 lorries and buses and achieved a turnover of 10.4 billion euros.
More than 400 SAP consultants in the DACH Region
“S&T DACH now has yet another worldwide renowned client on its books with the acquisition of the MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG assignment”, comments Georg Komornyik, Region General Manager S&T DACH. “After the merger of IMG Germany, Austria and Switzerland with S&T Austria last year to form S&T DACH, we now have over 400 consultants in the DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) region with considerable industry and process-specific skills and knowledge. The S&T Group as a whole has more than 1000 SAP consultants. In addition, our SAP Gold Partnership accreditation underscores our competence in this area.
