Since late 2016 the Group has been taking preliminary steps to fundamentally consolidate the existing ERP landscape. The SAP
system that has been used for many years is being replaced, along with other local ERP solutions, with SAP S/4HANA – a new ERP
greenfield venture that Oettinger Davidoff considers an opportunity to also centralize its payment transactions and to manage

platform because of its close SAP integration with simultaneous format hosting through TIS. The SAP department will now be able

it makes sense – this is the goal Oettinger Davidoff seeks to achieve by implementing the SAP-integrated TIS platform.
