A one-stop shop for logistics and SAP expertise: ParCon becomes part of io-consultants
Heidelberg - 2.1.2018
As of 1 January 2018, ParCon Consulting, an expert in SAP-related services with offices in Leonberg near Stuttgart and in Berlin, forms part of the consulting and planning company io-consultants, headquartered in Heidelberg. In this way, io-consultants is expanding its competencies in SAP consulting and is sending a clear signal for future growth.
As a lead consultant in industrial projects along the entire supply chain, io-consultants already consolidates expertise in logistics, IT, production and architecture, a combination of services that is unique in the market. Together with ParCon, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017, io-consultants will from now on be able to support clients in developing their digital supply chain, offering them comprehensive SAP consulting and programming services as well as its own SAP solutions, in addition to the present range of services. These new solutions include, among others, intelligent SAP add-ons such as "easyTrack" and the "Locate & Share Suite" for the optimisation and visualisation of transport planning and scheduling that help to close the gap between the SAP standard and customer-specific requirements.
"We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues from ParCon, with their expertise and experience, to our teams. Together, with a team of around 50 IT- and SAP experts, we will be even better prepared to carry out complex supply chain projects. This applies as much to SAP-related projects as to our large lead consulting projects, in which our clients place their trust in us, from the first strategic issues to the commissioning of entire supply chains. Together with ParCon, we have decided on further steps to implement a digitalisation strategy for the years to come and we will apply all our energy to taking these steps. Apart from the strategic aspects, we are very pleased to have two excellent managers on board, Jörg Zölzer and Christian Kaufmann", says Thomas Kilimann, Managing Director of io-consultants.
"After 20 successful years, we have now found the ideal partner for a sustainable future growth concept in io-consultants", adds Jörg Zölzer, Managing Director of ParCon Consulting. "The strategic goal to move faster on our path to success and to further develop this course and prepare for the future together with a strong partner has now become a tangible objective. In the future, our clients will be able to benefit from more flexibility in terms of resources and from the special know-how of our new colleagues. Our employees will find new prospects and career opportunities in an international company. Going forward, we will be working under one roof with the market leader in lead consulting in production, logistics, architecture and IT. This offers us excellent market access for our SAP service range. The management team at io-consultants has built a successful and truly remarkable company and we are delighted that we are now a part of this enterprise that is characterised by great operational skills and strategic foresight".
Both companies will exhibit at LogiMAT 2018. Visit them at their booths in hall 8 in order to learn more about their concepts and solutions for the digitalisation of the logistics supply chain with SAP or join the presentation on Thursday, 15 March 2018 at 10:15 am in Forum F, hall 10.
