Using this new construction, SALT AND PEPPER is covering a broad range of supplementary services which enables it to offer its clients holistic support.
Sven Scholz, CEO of SALT AND PEPPER Holding GmbH & Co. KG: “By expanding our skills range, we are able to support our clients comprehensively in their shift to Industry 4.0 – from analysis, advising and conceptualisation via software development through to the successful implementation of the solution. At the same time, we are also able to offer the three services independently, which brings us into contact with a whole new range of clients.”
In the Management Consulting Division, SALT AND PEPPER, using the Operational Excellence approach, optimises processes and structures for their clients with the aid of various methods, and adapts them to Industry 4.0. “What is special about our approach is that consulting is closely combined with training and coaching. In the course of an efficient consultancy process, solutions are developed and we enable the customer to implement these,” says Florian Kirstein, CEO of SALT AND PEPPER Consulting GmbH & Co. KG. His manager colleague Marko Schluroff adds “We are really happy that this approach is so well received by our clients – also beyond our domestic borders. We have permanently reduced down-times, and thus optimised Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), for a Chinese-based automotive service provider.” The homogenisation of the IT landscape is currently being put in place for a medical technology manufacturer in Germany, and a global Manufacturing Execution System is being introduced for a client in the automotive sector.
In the Software Solutions Division SALT AND PEPPER develops software solutions that enable intelligent networking and digitalisation. These services are not rendered at the client’s location but back home on their own premises. In addition, they develop their own products, for example in the areas of Virtual Reality and Industry 4.0. Timo Seggelmann, Manager of SALT AND PEPPER Software GmbH & Co. KG i. Gr., based in Osnabruck, says “Industry is facing the challenge of networking processes and structures, and connecting everything to the digital world. For efficient business processes, from manufacturing to management, user-friendly and reliable software solutions are a decisive element in differentiation.”
In the long-established Technology Consulting Division, top quality engineering and consulting services are provided to clients both on and off site. The experienced engineers, computer scientists and industry specialists support business partners with both the development of new technologies and products and with optimal design of production processes. “This business sector is characterised by close, confidential customer relations. We are acting more and more as a more comprehensive development partner and reinforce our clients’ innovative capacity this way”, says André Wilmshöfer, one of the Managers of SALT AND PEPPER Technology GmbH & Co. KG.
The relaunch of the SALT AND PEPPER Group is combined with a change of market image and a relaunch of the website www.salt-and-pepper.eu.
