Customer Reference: Mayer-Kuvert-network

With Aicomp Mayer-Kuvert-Network Is Driving Forward Its Digitization Strategy

For Mayer Group, precision and profitability are paramount in our quotation processes. Aicomp's VCPowerPack is our indispensable ally, enabling us to deliver exact cost calculations and tailored product configurations right from the quotation phase. This synergy ensures we maintain our competitive edge in a demanding market

Mayer-Kuvert-network is the largest company in the envelope industry in Europe with over 30 companies in 16 countries. Currently in the process of its own future concept “Mission 2020,” the company is continuously driving forward its digitization strategy and relies on the latest technical possibilities in the SAP environment.

An important and forward-looking step for Mayer-Kuvert-network was the conversion of the existing ERP system to SAP solutions at the German locations in 2014. In June 2019, the current system landscape SAP ERP ECC 6.0 was converted to S/4HANA Enterprise Management in the process of an S/4 conversion project. Further innovation projects are in the starting blocks.

Since November 2019, the new mayer-digital division has formed the third pillar in the Mayer Group and, as a digital competence center, complements the existing divisions. As a core for digital innovation and further development, mayer-digital relies, among other things, on the SAP C/4HANA platform in the areas of CRM and eCommerce.

Project Goals of the ERP Implementation

  • Uniform cost and price calculation across all locations
  • Standardization and harmonization of processes, unification of master data, roles and authorizations
  • Optimized logistics across locations (disposition and inventory management)
  • Simplified accounting between the various subsidiaries

Highlights of the Implementation

  • Integrated and automated intercompany processing
  • Integrated calculation of sheet- and reel-based products with offset, flexo and digital printing
  • Automatic (multi-level) master data creation
  • Interface to MES CAT (T.CON)
  • EDI connection of suppliers and customers

Decision for Aicomp

Aicomp convinced us early through industry specific know-how, deep understanding of manufacturing processes and complex product configurations and the awareness of being able to create and process necessary master data in a complete system quickly and seamlessly.

Decision for VCPowerPack

With VCPowerPack from Aicomp, we have the ideal tool to map complex configurations in SAP with full compatibility and the optimal basis for an integrative process chain from the quotation to the invoice. Today, Aicomp supports us in the development of new business scenarios and digital future solutions, which are made possible by the latest technologies. For example, eCommerce and Web2Print solutions are created.

Decision for SAP

The switch to SAP S/4HANA was a clear and important decision for the Mayer Group in order to be able to meet the demands on IT landscapes as well as processes and structures that arise from increasing digitalization. With SAP S/4HANA, we can successively introduce Fiori interfaces to optimize usability or real-time analytics to improve the evaluation of our business processes.
