As an international network of technology businesses, Putsch GmbH & Co. KG with its headquarters in Hagen, Germany, was facing a new generation of information technology. The company for machinery and equipment with a focus on the sugar industry used the opportunity of switching systems from PPS and PDM to improve their master data. The expert simus systems used the software simus classmate to support them in this pursuit. After the migration in ERP and PLM software by SAP, simus classmate automated the classification and text generation.
