Practical process know-how combined with SAP expertise in production and logistics – for more than 25 years!
IGH Infotec AG was established in 1995 and, since its foundation, has focused on the topic of “Mobile data capture”. After initially programming purely customer-specific data capture systems, we quickly realised that sustainable growth is only possible with standardised software.
This coincided with the fact that many of our customers were migrating from existing individual ERP systems to the SAP R/3 standard.
SAP R/3 gave us the opportunity to standardise the software technically and functionally. To do this, we first used a self-developed middleware, which communicated with the SAP system via an interface. From R/3 Release 4.7 on, we have used Web-AS, which was new at the time. The problematical subject “interface” was thus removed from the frame.
This was the starting point for our SAP add-ons (SAP enhancements) for production and logistics – integrated in SAP – without an interface.
Mobile data capture in logistics became a “bestseller” for us. Our portfolio grew from just a handful of processes to more than 150 sophisticated mobile workflows for production and logistics.
In the year 2005, we became an SAP partner with the corresponding certifications. It was at this point that we also developed our first “MES applications”. The first systems were strongly oriented towards the workflow architecture of mobile data capture.
