KEB, a Germany-based specialist manufacturing group, wanted to grow internationally. An integrated, worldwide operation could take advantage of economies of scale, co-ordinated marketing and more efficient operations. Independent SAP applications at worldwide locations could not share data, and the lack of a single information source prevented the rapid and accurate analysis of performance. KEB implemented a consolidated suite of SAP ERP applications for all locations as a single instance at the corporate headquarters, using the Unicode standard to allow shared access in local languages.
