Zurich (Switzerland), Hanover (Germany). September 22, 2009. – After a detailed selection process Bahlsen, Germany’s market leader in sweet baked goods, decides for SpecPage’s integrated software application SpecPDM.
For the development department which develops in distributed teams in different Bahlsen locations, major selection criteria were the functionality of Multilingualism and Multi-user with different permission and guidance levels as well as automatic interface to SAP.
Thus the internal company processes in the software can be mapped and all work data can be accessed by any user in a single data source.
The product developers are working with the recipes and raw materials which are relevant and released in that department. Food Law responsibles get current data for creating ingredients lists that are grouped together from all preliminary stages.
Purchasers get access to Raw Material Specifications, sales people on current and future Finished Product Specifications.
Thus all critical information is stored in a database which was previously collected in various subsystems. This seamless integration is a step forward in terms of traceability and information efficiency. Redundant processing steps are therefore excluded.
In addition, full costing and cost control is ensured in each development project, which also allows simulating new products with trial materials.
Not least, the decision was made for the application with the highest level of functionality and the highest security for the future. SpecPage is a proven specialist for the food industry and backs Bahlsen’s innovative leadership.
