In order to ensure the excellent quality and long service life of their hydraulic control valves, WESSEL HYDRAULIK rely on state-of-the-art engineering and production methods and a particularly high vertical integration. The company has been using proALPHA ERP for more than 20 years to achieve the necessary efficiency and transparency. As of late, the small and mid-sized company also relies on cleverorder by curecomp. This considerably accelerates the processes in operational procurement and supports WESSEL HYDRAULIK in serving the national and international customers quickly and flexibly.
The curecomp solution relieves the employees in operational procurement of a lot of manual activities of order processing. If a need emerges, the consumers place the order themselves in their working environment. If drawing parts are requested, the drawings stored in the ERP system are automatically sent along so that the suppliers directly have all the information they need. The process automation saves so much time that the customers receive the confirmation of their delivery date much faster. At the same time, the purchasing department at WEISSEL HYDRAULIK is now perfectly equipped for the predicted growth of the purchasing volume, which would have required hiring additional staff if it hadn't been for the SRM software. And now there's a lot more room for strategic tasks like global sourcing and controlling and the supplier qualification. This way, the company ensures a continuous, fast and cost-effective material supply of the production in the long term.
By means of the electronic catalog system clevercatalog, which is also integrated into the solution suite, WESSEL HYDRAULIK drives the decentralization process of its procurement. The employees can use it to independently place orders from selected e-catalogs.
cleversource also plans to standardize and further automate the request processes by means of forms. All data will then be stored and updated centrally in the ERP system.
