"Our customers cannot make any more mistakes with A+W iQuote. The entire order runs through a restriction check based on our master data. We get a complete, technically correct order; questions and long-winded clarifications on the telephone are no longer required. This means greater efficiency in the entire order process […] We set ourselves up for the future with a comprehensive EDP solution and we have never looked back. The A+W Cantor system offers us 100% availability and works absolutely reliably day after day."
Schlotterer is Austria's market leader for exterior non-textile sun protection. The product range includes roller shutters, exterior blinds, and insect protection screens.
The whole company is networked with more than one hundred A+W Cantor monitor workstations, forty-three in the commercial area, and seventy A+W Cantor Production stations in production and shipping. The company works virtually paperless.
With the help of A+W Cantor production monitors and continuous barcode registration, the semi-finished products are steered reliably through production and assembled at the end into finished exterior blinds or other Schlotterer products.
While everyone is talking about Industry 4.0, important parts of this concept have already been implemented at Schlotterer.
Frequently people overlook the fact that Industry 4.0 does not begin in the production facility; instead, company-spanning, highly mobile communication in the commercial sector is the prerequisite for successful automated production. For many Schlotterer customers, in the future this communication will begin in the Webshop A+W iQuote.
