Keller & Kalmbach to Master Product, Customer and Supplier Data on Single Unified Platform
Aarhus, Denmark, January 22, 2019 – Stibo Systems, the only master data management (MDM) company, today announced that Keller & Kalmbach, a leading wholesaler of connecting and fastening technology and pioneer in innovative logistics systems for C-Parts, has chosen a cloud-based Stibo Systems multidomain MDM solution to facilitate its continued business growth through more efficient and secure data management across the enterprise.
Founded in 1878, Keller & Kalmbach has grown from a wholesaler for screws and supplies for smiths to become one of the world’s leading wholesalers of more than 100,000 joining elements and fasteners, as well as more than 900,000 industrial parts. As the company expanded, adding numerous branches in Germany and abroad and acquiring more than 20,000 customers, the current ERP system was no longer capable of supporting its continued growth alone.
“Our products are critically important to the success of manufacturing, rail, automotive and trade industries across the region,” said Rudolf Karl, Managing Director, Keller & Kalmbach. “As our business expanded to support these growing industries, we realized that we needed a new solution to not only support our growing product data needs, but our customer and supplier data as well. Stibo Systems was the only provider that could manage all those domains on a single platform.”
Upgrades to meet Keller & Kalmbach’s evolving needs had also grown time-consuming and expensive, with each change request requiring additional development. As a result, the company is deploying the Stibo Systems MDM solution on a cloud platform, making the implementation less expensive and upgrades faster and more flexible.
“Keller & Kalmbach is a pioneer in their field, and they look for equally innovative technology partners to help them reach their goals,” said Christian Oertzen, President EMEA, Stibo Systems. “Working with our partner, POET, Stibo Systems will help ensure that Keller & Kalmbach is able to meet the needs of its 900 employees across 26 locations, as well as its thousands of customers, today and for years to come.”
