PSI Metals GmbH and IDAP Informationsmanagement GmbH decided on a strategic partnership. This will allow customers to benefit from two optimally coordinated software solutions and efficient end-2-end processes in the future. In addition to a joint sales force, the cooperation includes a regular exchange and SAP training of PSI employees by IDAP.

As a leading provider for software solutions in production management for the metals industry, PSI Metals combines SCM, APS and MES in its solution. As an SAP specialist, IDAP is responsible for the seamless integration of PSImetals and SAP ERP, ERP-side customising and process optimisation. Both companies are also contributing their comprehensive understanding of the industry to the cooperation.

"More and more companies from the metals industry are turning to holistic software solutions as part of their digital transformation journey," explains Jörg Hackmann, Managing Director of PSI Metals. "The goal is end-to-end process chains and information flows - from IoT to controlling. Through the strategic partnership with IDAP, we are now able to offer exactly this to customers who use SAP or are planning to implement SAP."

"We have already successfully implemented projects with PSI Metals," adds Jürgen Guthöhrlein, Managing Director of IDAP Information Management. "Therefore, our joint approach to integrate the two systems is field-tested and experienced."

For the seamless integration of the production processes into the business management processes, the systems must be optimally coordinated. The compatibility of PSImetals with SAP is guaranteed by regular certification in a jointly developed simulation environment.
