CASE STUDY - BÜRGER selects Lasernet to drive output management efficiency and reduce cost

German food manufacturer, BÜRGER GmbH & Co. KG, has chosen the output management application Lasernet by Formpipe, as part of its SAP rollout, in a bid to improve efficiency and reduce operational cost. The move to SAP and the Lasernet enterprise output management (EOM) application has replaced four separate systems including a rival output management software.

With the introduction of new food information regulations the need to create a reliable, quick and simple label printing function was essential. Selecting an Enterprise Output Management (EOM) application capable of integrating seamlessly with the multiple ERP systems already in place was also key, as Stephan Melz, Head of IT, at BÜRGER, confirms: “Using multiple output management systems for different ERPs was a legacy issue and one we were keen to address. We’ve been using Lasernet for many years and have always been impressed with its user-friendly functionality and reliability.”

“The fact [Lasernet] configures so well with each and every ERP system we use was an added bonus. Creating a successful SAP environment meant selecting the most powerful tool available to ensure the design, management and transfer of data and documentation helps our business operate as effectively and efficiently as possible. We now have a central EOM solution that’s easy to use and delivers real value to our overall operation.”

The migration to using Lasernet took under 10 weeks and has empowered BÜRGER to design, store and share a variety of documentation, such as invoices and labels, across multiple formats from HTML to PDF. Mike Rogers, Sales and Marketing Director for Lasernet, explains the benefits this will bring, “BÜRGER has been using Lasernet for part of its output management function for a while now but being selected over competing products also in use is testament to Lasernet’s superior functionality and usability. Bürger is now in a better place to effectively manage newly introduced labeling regulations, whilst reducing the administration time and associated expense of operating multiple, disjointed systems.”

For over twenty years Formpipe have been working with customers to provide a leading input and output management supply. The company convert and communicate documents in all formats with Lasernet, using their business knowledge and market-leading software.
