Transition Technologies PSC partners with Oerlikon Surface Solutions for Digital Transformation
Oerlikon Surface Solutions, a division of the Oerlikon Group, offers leading global solutions and services in surface treatment and additive manufacturing. The company has chosen Transition Technologies PSC Germany GmbH, a systems integrator, to support the company’s digitization strategy.
Digital transformation across the value chain
Oerlikon Surface Solutions boasts a comprehensive portfolio of market-leading technologies, systems, components and materials for thin-film coating, thermal spraying and additive manufacturing. The cornerstone of these operations are optimized processes throughout the value chain, supported by state-of-the-art technologies. Oerlikon’s goal on the journey to digital transformation is to simplify and streamline further processes and seamlessly ensure transparency and consistency of data and information.
Manual sales and logistics processes needed to be digitized, some of which were still done on paper.
It was necessary to transfer server structures to current Internet and security architectures, as well as to serverless systems.
Applications for better data transparency and process optimization
Transition Technologies PSC, in cooperation with Oerlikon, has developed a roadmap which will be based on the AWS cloud used to create solutions for business use cases. Depending on the level of the requirements’ sophistication, these may include integration of standard applications with AWS or custom applications developed by TT PSC within Oerlikon’s IT environment.
“Transition Technologies PSC is our reliable strategic partner we want to establish a long-term partnership with for digital transformation. Their team provides extensive expertise in AWS cloud technologies and strategies. Given their high level of understanding of our processes and challenges in the manufacturing industry, we are certain that we will always receive the optimal solution,” said Rouven Bilgeri, Manager Digital Applications at Oerlikon IT Solutions about the partnership with Transition Technologies PSC.
The customized applications include an application built specifically for the sales process, as well as a customer portal whereby the entire ordering process, including order management, has been digitized and streamlined. Data from the product database and the ERP system are available throughout the system. This also enables salesmen at the customer’s site to process quotations more quickly, as data is digitally recorded in real time and subject to further processing. Oerlikon customers can access their orders and invoices at any time via the online order portal. The delivery date data are also accessible from customer accounts.
According to Bilgeri, this is a major added value: “With these applications, we can provide even better service to our customers both on-site and online. By accelerating the process, for example, we can get quotes much faster and avoid repetitive tasks.”
Another application developed by TT PSC is an application for digital work distribution, which can quickly incorporate the ideas of production employees.
In the long run, this is expected to produce higher employee satisfaction by keeping them involved in the company’s key processes, as well as reducing costs in the production environment.
