Lisega, based in Zeven, Germany, is the worldwide market leader in the pipe support industry, primary servicing the power and petrochemical industries. We are a global organization with manufacturing facilities in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and China.
In the early 1990s, Lisega realized that with our planned growth, we would not be able to manage the business with existing systems. Abas ERP was selected as our new standard business software, and implemented in Germany and the US in 1993, with all other sites following over the next few years. Since implementation, global sales have increased over 500%, and Abas ERP has kept pace with and supported our growth. Almost all of our 1,100 employees directly use or consume data from the Abas system on a daily basis, from the production floor to the CFO.
The greatest benefit to Abas, from our point of view, is the flexibility. Over the past two decades, we have implemented hundreds of additional features to support our business processes, have integrated Abas with our other applications (project management, APS, document archiving, PLM, CAD, and others), and have done all of it using our in house IT staff. When support is required (either development or operational) we have found the Abas staff to be knowledgeable, responsive, and supportive of our efforts. Overall, it's fair to say that Abas ERP has been a significant contributor to the success of our business, and I strongly recommend it to the SMB manufacturing community.
