Adding value for our customers is what drives us every day.

The enthusiastic experts of German-based T.CON GmbH & Co. KG work daily to ensure its customers are fit for the future. As an innovative, full-service provider for SAP and an SAP gold partner, T.CON and its team serve customers worldwide. Together with you, they optimize your business processes and implement a future-oriented digital strategy.

MES CAT - The newest generation of manufacturing execution systems MES CAT from T.CON utilizes state-of-the-art technology with full integration with SAP® software to control and monitor production in real time. The MES CAT has the functionality and the flexibility to track how equipment is used and to notify when equipment is due for maintenance. This saves valuable time and allows customers to make the most of their production. This scalable solution can run on any combination of OS and database for the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform, including the SAP HANA® business data platform.

TRIM SUITE - Maximizing savings through trim optimization Companies in the mill industry are all struggling with the same problem: to plan trim optimizations manually is time-consuming and does not always provide the optimal solution. T.CON enables its customers to save time and money with its new TRIM SUITE, the world's first application for the full-scale creation of trim optimizations.

SMART FOR MILL SAP S/4HANA® was taken into careful consideration as the SMART FOR MILL template was developed. SMART FOR MILL is a solution for companies that produce laminar products on reels or made-to-measure products. It provides presets for key processes for length- and area-oriented production, can be implemented quickly, and is designed for operation with SAP S/4HANA.

FactorE.OS - The one-stop digitalization solution As a cloud solution for machine learning and shop floor management, FactorE.OS provides midsize industrial companies a quick and inexpensive entry into Industry 4.0. It offers a modern solution for any machine - regardless of age or type of machine - with minimal headaches and downtime. T.CON allows its customers to utilize modern technology, but remains as noninvasive in customers' daily business as possible.

Together with you, T.CON develops your digitalization strategy, regardless of whether you want to work with T.CON on an implementation, launch a carve-out project, or get fit for the future as part of a conversion to SAP S/4HANA.

As an owner-managed company, T.CON focuses on sustainable growth. It achieves this through the high commitment of its employees, its ongoing training programs to advance knowledge and skill sets, and of course, by placing you the customer at the centre of all its activities. It is exactly its long-term, stable relationships with you and its partners that serve as the pillars of T.CON's success.

Our idea.
What if you could use standard out-of-the-box business software for your industry-specific processes without having to bend or modify it, allowing you to keep standard maintenance? That is the main idea behind aicomp | software from AICOMP Consulting Inc. Rather than modify, VCPowerPack software enhances stable core SAP® software based on your industry specifications, tailoring it to support your individual business processes.

Why aicomp | group?
Because we know your business. We know that the more time you waste with your sales and estimation processes, the less likely it is your customer will buy from you. Our integration with the SAP software that support sales processes, paired with an unmatched acceleration of product configuration, turns days of work in your legacy system into minutes on VCPowerPack. Our benchmark and our promise to you is that you'll never again have to tell your customers, "Let me check, I'll call ya' back."

Our solution.
VCPowerPack is the enterprise product configurator for your SAP software. It is:
· Seamlessly, natively integrated with the SAP ERP application
· Multimodel, multiplatform, and multilevel
· Three dimensional: customer, sales, design
With VCPowerPack on the SAP HANA® business data platform, our biggest differentiator is our translytical (transaction and analytics) DNA. For example, what other configurator shows, analyzes, and sorts all of your machine routings based on:
· Technical capability
· Waste consumption
· Time consumption
· Costs
· Availability
· Real-time and dynamically updates All this, while still in the configuration phase?

Our integration.
While normal configure, price, and quote (CPQ) tools stop after CPQ has been completed, we jump-start the downstream process by creating the master data automatically using our SmartMD software. And what use would all that CPQ data be if you couldn't share it with CAD, manufacturing execution, and third-party logistics software? Or with individual apps? Or put it in the cloud? Because let's not forget: all our software is available on multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Win10 mobile, and Android. Or in a browser? Or embedded in cloud solutions from SAP, including the SAP Business ByDesign® solution and SAP Hybris® solutions?

Our services.
We not only help you implement and tailor your enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to support your ERP processes. As an SAP gold partner and number one implementer of SAP Business ByDesign, we deliver cloud services as well. In supporting SAP Business ByDesign, SAP SuccessFactors® solutions, and SAP Hybris solutions, we have extended our portfolio to cover small and midsize enterprises, HR management, human capital management, and customer relationship management (CRM). In addition to that, we're pairing software and the cloud by enabling configuration directly in CRM software with our plug-in for SAP Hybris solutions.

We're ready to configure your vision. Just contact one of our offices near you in Europe or the Americas.
