Focus on the customer
One example of an ERP system that boasts all of these features is Wodis Yuneo, the new Wodis Sigma product generation for Germany. It is a declared objective of Aareon’s ERP pioneers to involve customers in the development process as fully and as early as possible.
In the words of Martin Habib, Chief Developer for Wodis Yuneo at Aareon: “We involved over ten long-standing, highly experienced customers from the housing industry – from companies to co-operatives – in the development process at an early stage. One-day workshops were held at the head office in Mainz at two- or three-monthly intervals. These were eventually moved online as Covid-19 took hold.” Sebastian Schlackl, Team Coordination Application Support at wbg Nürnberg GmbH, was among the customers involved. His summary:
“This joint further development effort focussed on our needs as a customer. It was a collaboration between equals.”
