How our customers benefit
„DeltaMaster gives us a real-time picture of the entire organization. Everyone at the company gets full transparency about their performance at top speed.“
Ludwig Stüwe, Division Controlling SIT, Linxens Germany GmbH
Linxens uses DeltaMaster to make core processes of its own value creation measurable so that it can manage the value contributions of all parts of the organization in a targeted manner where they arise. Analysis applications for the areas of controlling, sales, product management and business unit management are being gradually implemented in order to make cost or margin trends visible and comprehensible. Other areas include customer service, production, and procurement for the visualization of incoming orders, production volumes, internal goods movements, and inventories.
„DeltaMaster is our central analysis, reporting, and planning tool for providing analytical support for the entire value chain.“
Dietmar Quatember, Head of IT, Salinen Austria
The areas in which DeltaMaster is employed at Salinen Austria cover the entire value chain. The company uses automated preview contribution margin accounting. Sophisticated forecasting at product and customer level enables the more effective coordination of short-term and medium-term sales development, outstanding orders, and the entire production and warehouse management. In cost center accounting, the presentation of expenses right down to document level, including posting texts, means current costs can be precisely controlled.
„Seeing everything that DeltaMaster could do felt a bit like Christmas: all functions for standard reporting, from set-up of the report to distribution at the touch of a button, and all kinds of analysis options at the same time. To sum it up for us, every provider has strengths in certain areas – but with DeltaMaster, everything is possible.“
Melanie Rosenberger, Business Intelligence Team leader, Scherdel
The automobile supplier Scherdel uses DeltaMaster throughout the Group as a uniform tool for strategic and operational reporting in sales, purchasing, and production. In addition, orders on hand, customer acquisition (forecast, success rate), and profitability of products are analyzed. Revenue planning is also carried out with DeltaMaster. For purchasing controlling, the effective price change compared with the previous year is calculated. In production controlling, aspects such as productivity, changeover levels, stoppage levels, and reject rates are ascertained.
