Flexibility and a variety of modules: the perfect foundation for international application
Using the cloud-based software as a service system, the requirements of specific locations can be met individually, without burdening the internal IT infrastructure. This makes data management flexible and location-independent - the perfect foundation for a smooth roll-out, also internationally. When Quentic introduced the multi-language functions, GEA initiated the international application. Even if the English version of the software could be used to a large extent, it significantly broadens the possibilities of application and utilization if the software solution is available in local languages, especially when it comes to training or instructing employees at the production facilities. Furthermore, the development of international partner networks and interfaces with global legal databases furthered GEA’s plans of promoting digital EHS management beyond
Germany and Europe with Quentic.
Following the implementation strategy in Germany, the modules Health & Safety and Legal Compliance will be used as a basis for international implementation. This is because legal provisions and compliant action are the basis for all processes and are closely linked to occupational health & safety and environmental requirements. Other modules will be added depending on the location’s requirements. A pilot phase roll-out has been taking place at a plant in the Netherlands since 2019, two more implementations are in the pipeline. GEA is already using Quentic in India as well. Other locations in China and the USA are also preparing for implementation.
