Aachen, 17.02.2020 – Business processes in medium-sized companies are becoming increasingly complex. New solutions are needed to remain competitive in an increasingly digital world. Digitization in medium-sized businesses is an increasingly important topic. BPV GmbH from Unna also recognized this and decided to implement the innovative ERP system brixxbox. Today, the company is certain: the decision for the brixxbox was an important milestone for the future viability of the Unna-based company.
The history of the medium-sized telecommunications service provider BPV GmbH is impressive: started in 2013 with three employees, the company now has 80 employees and annual sales of around 15.5 million euros. Over the years, the service company from Unna has developed into the market leader in the field of mobile communications and an all-round service provider for well-known major companies such as the automotive supplier HELLA GmbH & Co. and the insurance group Provinzial NordWest.
An important factor in the company’s success is its corporate philosophy: having the courage to dare something new. “Standstill means regression. We have the ambition to constantly develop as a modern and agile company and to offer our customers and partners a consistently high standard of service,” says Hardy Pesch, Managing Director of BPV GmbH. “This also includes automating internal company processes – where possible and right. The introduction of an ERP system is an important step for us to ensure the future viability of the company”.
Selection of the ERP system: Requirements clearly defined
The requirements for the ERP system were clearly defined: BPV GmbH has many customers with individual support standards and a correspondingly high administrative effort. The ERP system should be able to fully meet all individual requirements. In addition, it should be easy to use and adapt. “In times of digitalization, we must be able to react quickly to new market requirements. Only in this way can we act in a sustainable manner.” Many standard solutions did not meet these requirements: too rigid, too inflexible. For Pesch, one thing was clear: This is not the solution for digitization in medium-sized businesses.
The solution: the smart modular system brixxbox
With the brixxbox, BPV GmbH has now found a solution that fully met the requirements. The user-friendly, intelligent building block system enables 100% coverage of all company processes, whereby unnecessary fields and functions are completely eliminated. The high flexibility makes it possible to completely map the individual company processes. Within minutes, employees can also make adjustments independently – without additional programming effort. “This is a huge advantage for us. Whether minor changes, such as adding an element to a document, or major process changes – thanks to the simplicity and flexibility of the brixxbox, we always remain independent and highly flexible,” emphasizes Hardy Pesch.
First successes: high employee acceptance, more capacities available
The brixxbox is now being successively introduced. The management is already seeing a positive development: “We are now able to manage everything centrally via the brixxbox. Our customers benefit from even better, more individual support and our employees are happy. The brixxbox also makes their work much easier thanks to the cross-operational and cross-device conformity. Of course, the economic aspect is also not to be ignored: With the existing capacities we can now handle more orders”. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
Digitization of medium-sized businesses – Appeal to managing directors: Be courageous!
Hardy Pesch has advice for managing directors who are faced with the decision to introduce an ERP system: “Many entrepreneurs are afraid of a high cost apparatus, an endlessly long introduction process and an unsatisfactory result. But in times of digitalization, isn’t it even riskier to leave everything as it is instead of daring to try something new? I believe we need to be even bolder as entrepreneurs today if we want to survive in the market in the long term. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
