Düllberg Konzentra wins the 2013 Process Solutions Award
Hamburg/Germany, June 2013 – The fragrance manufacturer Düllberg Konzentra has been awarded first place in the Process Solutions Awards by the Gesellschaft für Organisation e.V. (gfo). Together with intellivate GmbH and their workflow and business process management suite IYOPRO, Düllberg Konzentra won the Process Solutions Award 2013 in the category “Process-Oriented Solutions “. This award is presented annually by the gfo to business process management projects that set new benchmarks in terms of innovation and measureable benefits. Every year, an independent jury comprising experts for business process modelling and optimisation, including the respected GPM specialist Professor Dr.-Ing. H. Binner and Professor Dr. T. Allweyer, recognises the best process-oriented projects implemented by German companies. The 2013 awards ceremony took place in Frankfurt at the Process Solutions Day, which is organised annually by gfo and is the biggest specialist conference for BPM software solutions in the German-speaking region.
Düllberg Konzentra and intellivate GmbH submitted a BPM project implemented on the basis of the online BPM suite IYOPRO. The jury was won over by the approach and implementation of this project, which facilitated “a process-oriented selection process, the evaluation of several industry-specific ERP tools and the process and solution-oriented introduction of a selected tool”. The implementation of the ERP selection process, the evaluation and introduction are process-oriented and follow the PRINCE2 project management method. Particular attention is paid to industry-specific implementation of the operative business processes within the ERP software. The latter are highly specific and complex, as the processes used at Düllberg Konzentra include processes used in the chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and food industries.
This highly process-oriented selection process enabled Düllberg Konzentra to evaluate and select ERP software that met the company’s specific needs. The system that was selected is the SAP Group’s ERP system based on the industry template myTDS.Process and implemented by the IT service company TDS. With the aid of this new system, Düllberg Konzentra will be able to secure continued growth, protect company expertise and maintain independence from external consultants. Düllberg Konzentra beat off strong competition, including the Fresenius Medical Group, to win the award. “The jury praised our approach for being outstandingly innovative and future-oriented”, said Martin Gottwald, CFO of Düllberg Konzentra. “We were able to score points with the scope of the existing process models, their detail and the specifications that these models allowed us to make for the new ERP system.”
