"It was the technical know-how of alphaX that enabled us to complete our Europe-wide virtual reality campaign for the new meeting concept of a leading hotel group."


With annual sales of almost 5 billion euros and over 13,000 employees, Wacker Chemie AG has a high demand for automation and lean processes. Using their SAP systems, external service providers are to be connected via an OCI catalogue and C articles ordered without media discontinuity. Since the employees are distributed worldwide, the system must also support different languages and cultural habits.


A web application is to be created that will be linked to the SAP Buyer of Wacker-Chemie as a catalog via an OCI interface. The catalog is called up directly from the familiar SAP environment and the user can use the catalog to create an order that is generated in SAP Buyer.


The result is an easy-to-use interface that meets all of Wacker’s buyers’ ordering requirements. The software is hosted as a cloud service and the buyer can configure a wide variety of items, place them in a shopping basket and place an order with a formal order. An automated reporting gives the purchasing management a monthly overview of the orders, there are various comfort functions for the user as well as various languages in which the user feels like at home.
