06/30/2021 | MTM development team has its sights firmly set on the cloud
From TiCon for S/4HANA, to MTM-Easy, to TiCon for Web
According to the 2021 Investment Report published by Deutschsprachige SAP-Anwendergruppe e. V. (DSAG), the German-speaking SAP User Group, of which Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH with its "Digital Solutions" business unit is a member, there is now cautious optimism in the market following the pandemic-related decline in investment last year. Although the retail and service sectors are still weakening, investment in the manufacturing industry – and this is also the market for MTM's TiCon time management software – is on the up, especially in the S/4HANA ERP solution. However, companies are cautious about switching to the S/4HANA cloud solution. According to DSAG, reservations regarding sensitive company data and the restrictions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may play a role here.
TiCon for SAP, the software solution for recording, managing and processing time data directly in SAP, is used by a large number of companies in the automotive, electrical, mechanical engineering and aircraft construction industries. The reason for the development was the requirement of large companies (many of them member companies of the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V.) to reduce interfaces and isolated applications for work system planning in SAP and to integrate the time management software without interfaces into already established ERP and PPS systems.
TiCon solution for the cloud
In the "Co-Innovated with SAP" program, Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH, as a certified SAP Silver Partner, is currently working with the best experts and technologies in the industry on a TiCon solution for the S/4HANA cloud as well.
As many as 91 percent of the participants in a survey of DSAG members (most of them from the manufacturing industry) say that they use cloud products in their company – if the key data is right. These include a licensing model that can be scaled in both directions, transparency with regard to hidden costs, consistent availability and the data security already mentioned.
Easy calculation in the cloud
With MTM-Easy, the first cloud-based software for determining assembly times, companies are doing everything right. MTM-Easy is primarily aimed at small to medium-sized companies that currently have no time data available at all. The software solution requires the user to have ONLY knowledge of their operations and NO knowledge of industrial engineering tools. MTM-Easy focuses on the documentation of workstations and process steps and not necessarily on precise working times. MTM-Easy is an instrument that identifies potentials in work organization, showing exactly how much better things could be in the company. Users report savings of more than 50 percent. Best of all, users don't need training or complex software installation – simply buy the desired license in the new webshop at mtm-easy.com and get started.
For experts: TiCon for Web
Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH also has its sights firmly set on the cloud in the further development of its expert software TiCon. The team in the Digital Solutions business unit is already working intensively on TiCon for Web.
