– Call centre hub

South African based business technology partner AWM360 Data Systems has supplied its client, a well established international automotive engineering company, with a solution to effectively address a requirement for enhanced SAP-certified integrated time and attendance and access control, nationally.

The client is focused on unique systems competence in the combustion engine and engine peripherals. It has presence in Durban and Port Elizabeth and has a staff compliment of approximately 2000 employees.

In line with the global holding company’s strategy regarding its workforce management needs, AWM360’s client looked to the market and a potential partner to provide a scalable solution with hardware that would suit its production environment and its overall global procurement policy in this regard.

The implemented solution is based on the client’s SAP software as well as on Kaba’s server technology and Kaba hardware.

AWM360 Data Systems, a solution provider within the Southern African Human Capital Management (HCM) and Workforce Management Solutions markets, is one of only a handful of global Kaba AG reseller partners and Kaba’s partner for Southern Africa.

Kaba AG is a long-time certified SAP partner and global manufacturer of access control and enterprise data recording solutions. Kaba AG’s generic solution portfolio incorporates access management, workforce management, physical access systems and specialised lock & key systems (including cylinders).

This extensive profile is targeted at businesses of any size, across a variety of sectors (with government, enterprise and retail seen as key) and available via the Company’s reseller network. The network incorporates both established representative operational offices and/or support structures to contribute towards the success of projects.

Following a thorough consultation process, AWM360 Data Systems supplied Kaba’s B-Web series terminals with biometric readers for time recording.

“We chose B-Net 9290 and B-Net 9250 controllers, in combination with B-Net 9105 biometric access control terminals, to cover our client’s access control needs – as well as B-Web 9300 series biometric terminals for all time and attendance needs,” says Guenter Nerlich, Managing Director, AWM360 Data Systems. “An SAP-certified integration into their global SAP environment and the Kaba B-COMM ERP 4 SAP solution based in Germany was a necessity.”

AWM360’s client leverages this global infrastructure to enhance its control of resources nationally and internationally. It has also established a working relationship with AWM360 Data Systems, an experienced partner with an unrivalled level of expertise.

Leadership at the automotive engineering company has expressed its satisfaction with the infrastructure, support and service delivered by AWM360 Data Systems.
