“With the introduction of SOLYP3, we expect much faster and more effective data processing, which will form the basis of KWS’s strategic planning.”

As one of the world's leading seed producers, KWS SAAT AG recognizes the importance of strategic planning for long-term business success. With approximately 60 subsidiaries and associated companies and around 3,900 employees (1,500 of them in Germany) in more than 70 countries, KWS has to deal with huge amounts of data during its strategic planning process: Data from hundreds of sources needs to be collected, consolidated, analyzed, and evaluated in a timely manner. To make data collection and evaluation more efficient, KWS will now carry out its strategic planning using the strategic planning software SOLYP3.

“With the introduction of SOLYP3, we expect much faster and more effective data processing, which will form the basis of KWS’s strategic planning,” says Dr. Helge Beyer, head of corporate development at KWS. “Our main aim is to focus more on qualitative planning as well as on technical issues. With SOLYP3, we hope to achieve this in two ways: First, the system integrates and makes usable all relevant soft data and key figures. Second, the new software enables us to quickly collect and analyze all data across all group levels and all planning units.”
