Vienna, Austria: October 7, 2019 – JAGGAER has replaced the TGW Logistics Group’s existing ERP system with new modules from the JAGGAER ONE spend management platform and connected them to SAP. This represents a milestone for TGW, improving the implementation of its global purchasing processes.
TGW, based in Marchtrenk, Germany, is one of the leading international providers of intralogistics solutions, and builds highly automated logistics centers for its customers. Many large online mail-order companies rely on their systems for frictionless global purchasing, which is more critical today than ever before. TGW is a market leader that has recorded above-average growth in recent years, which has placed increased demands for speed and efficiency on its eProcurement processes. This drove the company to relaunch its eProcurement infrastructure.
TGW selected JAGGAER’s supplier management, supplier onboarding and sourcing modules for the processing of inquiries in order to optimize its purchasing. The complete changeover to JAGGAER products enabled the implementation of a unitary database using the JAGGAER ONE platform, completely replacing TGW’s old, obsolete order management. The rapid integration of the modules and the platform to SAP was decisive for the success of this replacement, with the company’s planned migration to SAP.
“The connection had to be executed rapidly,” says Alexander Stunter, Senior Project Manager at TGW. “This is because from July 2020 we will use SAP enterprise-wide, and it was not possible to connect the old order management system to SAP.”
JAGGAER quickly connected the new modules to the SAP landscape via integrated interfaces; they now enable TGW to offer even more flexible and precise eProcurement. Due to its individual and highly automated systems, the TGW Logistics Group has an extremely heterogeneous product portfolio and a huge variety of parts. It must execute purchasing for this digitally and on a global basis, project by project, customer by customer.
“With JAGGAER we are able to depict our database of more than 1,800 suppliers digitally and get an overview of all global procurement processes,” explains Alexander Stunter. “In addition, we can better evaluate offers, structure our suppliers by rating and know the global donation data.”
