Our field of activity
abat is one of the leading SAP service providers for the automotive industry. The company provides SAP solutions for the entire value creation chain, from vehicle development, through procurement, production and logistics, to after-sales service. The secret of success: our ability to implement efficient SAP process workflows, provide innovative customer-specific add-ons and the MES PLUS solution. This combined with abat’s modern project control methods and integrated industry knowledge are usually the decisive factors for our customers to choose abat. In addition, abat SAP Services is a partner and has SAP Recognized Expertise for Automotive in Germany.
Discrete Production Business Area
Thanks to its expertise in automotive production, abat is also experienced in discrete production. PLUS from abat is the only standard product for this sector in the world. PLUS controls production lines with high levels of complexity, large volumes and a large number of variants. The software manages production processes for comprehensive components and equipment having serial numbers, which are later installed in cars, planes or kitchens.
abat offers solutions for supply chain optimization for logistics companies and logistics service providers. These solutions include intralogistics (SAP WM or EWM, SAP ERP) and transport management (SAP TM). abat also develops roadmap and template approaches as well as customer-specific add-ons, such as the data glasses solution xPick. Thanks to our solid project and program management, we ensure that budgets and schedules are attained without exception. In logistics, abat has SAP Recognized Expertise for Travel and Transportation as well as Supply Chain Management in Germany.
SAP Sports One
abat is currently the only introductory partner for SAP Sports One. This solution, which has been specially developed for sports, helps soccer clubs to achieve long-term success. We accompany professional and amateur teams with the introduction of the software - starting from the strategy through implementation and integration into the IT landscape of a club up to the optimization and maintenance.
As an SAP service provider, abat combines its IT and process expertise in the areas of automotive, discrete manufacturing and logistics with sustainability know-how. This combination is of great benefit to our customers because, especially in complex environments, the effects of digitization are strongly related to the requirements of sustainability. Here, we focus on four key areas: strategic sustainability management, sustainability reporting, material flow management and preparation and support for certification. As one of the few SAP service providers in Germany with these capabilities, therefore, abat advises on holistic sustainability management.
An ISO 27001 or TISAX® certification is sometimes requested, but rarely is it presented by any company of its own free will. We have been required by customers in the automotive industry to certify abat AG according to ISO 27001 & TISAX®.
Since its founding, abat pursues the philosophy of "New Work" and does so with a flat organizational structure. When we have been asked to certify we were very concerned that the path to certification could negatively impact our business. However, throughout the process we have found that successful certification is possible without sacrificing any fundamental principles.
To be well prepared for the time before, during and after a certification process, abat AG offers you information security consulting services and supports you in protecting your and your customers' values.
