Promotors mean greater proximity to customers

At Motorservice, Rheinmetall Automotive’s spare parts specialist, special promotors form an additional interface to customers. These technically versed employees are active in various countries, interacting directly with wholesalers and auto repair shops. They provide quick, competent advice and defined service support, acting as a direct communication link between wholesalers and their local branches as well to auto repair shop customers.

Introduced in 2010, the Promotors Concept has proved to be highly successful.  In the meantime, it continues to expand, with additional promotors being hired.

“Our promotors have the advantage of knowing the local language and understanding the local culture. Because they’re always on location, they know what’s going on in their countries and can react quickly.  So far, all we’ve had is positive feedback about the concept”, reports Hansjörg Rölle, one of the division’s top aftermarket executives. In addition to its existing promotors in Poland and Russia, since 2016 the division has had special employees in Italy, Hungary, Turkey and South Africa. Others have joined the team in the United States, Chile, and the Balkans, as well as in Morocco and Tunisia. With the hiring of an additional person in Russia, the company now has a total of twelve promotors in eleven countries.

Proximity to the “Point of Repair”

Promotors act as the long arm of the regional sales director, supporting customers in their daily operations. This can involve the identification of spare parts, for example, as well as obtaining market information and determining training requirements in auto repair shops. Furthermore, these highly trained employees conduct in-depth training courses on their own, and keep customers informed about the latest Motorservice products and services. In their capacity as local contact persons, they also appear at customer tradeshows, customer events, and at wholesalers. Motorservice differentiates between promotors who specialize in resolving technical problems and those whose expertise relates more to sales-oriented topics.

The technical promotors are first and foremost in charge of carrying out local training programs and overcoming technical problems during installation of Motorservice products directly in the repair shops. In addition, these promotors identify market-specific requirements and pass these on to the responsible product managers.

The more sales-oriented promotors provide in-depth sales supports and conduct local marketing activities. They make use of their local contacts in order to encourage the purchase of Motorservice products at retail and wholesale level as well as in repair shops.

Meyer Burger lanciert Transformationsprogramm, um langfristige Profitabilität zu sichern

  • Repositionierung des Standard-PV-Geschäfts nach Asien, vor allem China
  • Erhöhter strategischer Fokus auf Weiterentwicklung von Heterojunction, SWCT™ und Zell-/Modultechnologien der nächsten Generation
  • Erhöhte Widerstandsfähigkeit gegenüber Marktvolatilitäten durch substanzielle Reduktion des Break-even Levels auf Stufe Konzernergebnis

Meyer Burger Technology AG (SIX Swiss Exchange: MBTN) hat heute ein Transformationsprogramm und strukturelle Änderungen veröffentlicht, mit denen die Kundennähe erhöht, die globalen Produktionsstätten und die Fixkostenbasis weiter optimiert und die Widerstandsfähigkeit der Gesellschaft gegenüber Marktvolatilitäten verbessert werden.

Hans Brändle, CEO von Meyer Burger, sagte: „Meyer Burger ist im ersten Halbjahr 2018 erfolgreich in die Gewinnzone zurückgekehrt. Allerdings waren wir in der gleichen Zeitperiode mit einer hohen Marktvolatilität konfrontiert, die sich auf die Kundennachfrage nach unseren Photovoltaik Produkten und Lösungen auswirkte. Wir haben ein ambitiöses Transformationsprogramm lanciert, das Meyer Burger noch schlanker und fokussierter macht. Unsere führenden Heterojunction, SmartWire Connection Technology sowie Zell-/Modultechnologien der nächsten Generation stehen im Zentrum unserer zukünftigen strategischen Roadmap.“

Repositionierung des Standard-PV-Geschäfts nach Asien

Da die Fertigungsindustrie für PV Wafer, Zellen und Module überwiegend in Asien angesiedelt ist, wird Meyer Burger auch einen wesentlichen Teil seiner weltweiten Vertriebs- und Servicefunktionen für Standard-PV-Lösungen von Europa nach Asien, und dabei insbesondere nach China verlagern. Zudem werden für die Standard-PV-Produkte weitere Outsourcing- oder Kooperationspartnermodelle geprüft, um das Standard-Geschäft näher zu den Kunden zu bringen und mit lokalem Design und Fertigung Kosten zu reduzieren und Margen zu sichern. Gleichzeitig werden die globalen Betriebsstandorte optimiert. Durch diese Veränderungen werden die zukünftigen PV-Geschäftsaktivitäten von Meyer Burger hauptsächlich in Hohenstein-Ernstthal (Deutschland) und Wuxi-Shanghai (China) konzentriert. Die Hauptsitzstruktur wird entsprechend angepasst.

 

Strategischer Fokus: Heterojunction, SWCT™ und Zell-/Modultechnologien der nächsten Generation

Meyer Burger konzentriert im PV-Bereich den strategischen Schwerpunkt vor allem auf Heterojunction, SmartWire Connection Technology SWCT™ und attraktive Zell-/Modultechnologien der nächsten Generation wie beispielsweise Tandem Zellen, bei denen verschiedene Zelltypen gestapelt werden. Wir sehen verstärktes Interesse in diesen Technologien, insbesondere auch einen Anstieg der Anfragen ausserhalb von China. Allerdings bleibt es bei dem aktuellen Marktumfeld schwierig, den genauen Zeitpunkt entsprechender Auftragseingänge vorauszusagen.

 

Refokussierung von Forschungs- und Entwicklungsaktivitäten

Meyer Burger hat in den letzten Jahren durchschnittlich rund CHF 50 Mio. per annum in Forschung & Entwicklung investiert. In Asien wird die Gesellschaft die Technologie- und Engineeringkompetenz weiter ausbauen, um auch im Bereich F&E nahe beim Kunden agieren zu können. Durch die gleichzeitige Repositionierung des Standard-PV-Geschäfts und Fokussierung auf Zell-/Modultechnologien sowie einer Konzentration der F&E-Aktivitäten auf die vielversprechendsten Produkte erwartet die Gesellschaft eine Einsparung bei den jährlichen F&E-Ausgaben von rund CHF 10 Mio.

Allgemeine und administrative Funktionen werden innerhalb der gesamten Gruppe nochmals gestrafft, um so weitere Einsparungen bei den Betriebskosten zu ermöglichen.

 

Massnahmen führen zu Personalverlagerungen und Stellenabbau

Die Neuausrichtung, die Verlagerung von verschiedenen Funktionen und die effektivere Organisationstruktur führen insgesamt zu einem Abbau von rund 100 Mitarbeitenden (FTE) bzw. rund 9% der erwarteten Anzahl Mitarbeitende von ca. 1‘100 (nach vollständiger Umsetzung der Einstellung der Produktionsaktivitäten in Thun, wie am 2. November 2017 angekündigt). Die Umsetzung aller Personalmassnahmen wird möglichst sozialverträglich erfolgen. Entsprechend der Anpassungen und der zukünftigen Grösse des Unternehmens sind im Verlaufe des Transformationsprogramms auch Änderungen auf Stufe Geschäftsleitung und Verwaltungsrat vorgesehen.

 

Nach vollständigem Abschluss des Transformationsprogramms erwartet Meyer Burger ab dem Geschäftsjahr 2021 einen positiven Einfluss auf Stufe EBITDA von rund CHF 25 Mio. im Jahr. Drei Viertel der Massnahmen werden voraussichtlich bis Ende 2019 umgesetzt sein. Das Programm führt zu einmaligen liquiditätswirksamen Aufwendungen von rund CHF 11 Mio. für Personal- und Produktetransfers sowie in Personalkosten, von denen CHF 4 Mio. in der Jahresrechnung 2018 anfallen. Meyer Burger erwartet, dass das Break-even Level auf Stufe Konzernergebnis nach Umsetzung des Transformationsprogramms auf ein Nettoumsatzniveau von rund CHF 250 Mio. gesenkt wird.

Conference and Showcase for Digital Accessibility

The need for accessible technology to ensure people of all abilities to have access to a digital life is paramount. The possibilities of innovative inclusion technologies, above all, are a chance for society. This was the key theme of the first annual M-Enabling Forum Europe, held September 27, 2018 in the Congress Center of Messe Düsseldorf.

The conference and showcase was organized by, global exhibition management company E.J. Krause & Associates and The Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technology (G3ict), an advocacy initiative launched under the auspices of the United Nations to promote digital accessibility

More than 150 conference guests and over 20 sponsors and exhibitors participated in the M-Enabling Forum. Participants and attendees came from 14 countries including: Austria, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Norway, Russia, Spain, Switzerland and the United States.

Representatives from organizations of persons with disabilities, technology companies, regulatory bodies and institutions gathered for a day of thought-provoking panel discussions, innovative exhibition displays in the foyer showcase and intensive networking.

Inmaculada Placencia Porrero from the European Commission served as the opening keynote speaker. In her remarks, Ms Placencia Porrero pointed out that there is progress in the converging European ecosystem, she highlighted how accessibility needs to become mainstream and a major goal in closing the gap between persons with disabilities and the rest of the population when it comes to employment.

During the following panels, accessibility experts addressed how technology can improve independent living, the future of mobile accessibility and how common standards make it possible to cross borders and access technology in the same way at the same time.

The closing panel of the day discussed how smart technology is an engine of prosperity for all society. The key take-away message was that inclusion does not only benefit persons with disabilities, but also represents a chance for the whole society.

Digital accessibilty should play a key role in tech innovation. The issues discussed at the M-Enabling Forum Europe were both important and impactful. We saw a very successful launch with the first edition. The overwhelming positive feedback from our participants is encouraging us for the 2019 edition“ stated Kara Krause, Vice President, Marketing & Communications of E.J. Krause & Associates, Inc.

Positive energy and passion encompassed the room. It was great to hear about the significant advances of the European Accessibility Act and the many opportunities it will create for persons with disabilities and accessibility professionals.  A perfect timing for this first M-Enabling Forum Europe. It was clear from the reaction of all participants that they were happy to know we will be back in 2019“, added Axel Leblois, President of G3ict.

The first M-Enabling Forum Europe ran parallel to REHACARE. REHACARE, organized by Messe Düsseldorf, is the largest trade show for innovations focusing on rehabilitation, care and independant living with a visitor record of more than 50.000 this year.

ecsec supports trustworthy digitalisation under hand and seal

The Federal Office for Information Security has published new versions of the Technical Guidelines for "Replacement Scanning" (RESISCAN) and the "Preservation of Evidence of Cryptographically Signed Documents" (TR-ESOR), developed with the support of ecsec, which provide the basis for efficient and secure digitalisation of business and public administration.

Secure digital administration processes thanks to RESISCAN, E-File, TR-ESOR & Co.

As part of the digitalisation strategy of the new German Federal Government, the electronic transaction processing in public administration (E-File) plays an important role. The Federal Government’s E-Government Act has already provided regulations for the "Electronic record-keeping" (§ 6 EGovG) and the "Conversion and destruction of the original paper document" (§ 7 EGovG) since 2013, whereby the systems and processes used must be protected using state-of-the-art security measures. The required and recommended measures are described in the relevant Technical Guidelines of the Federal Office for Information Security, such as BSI TR-03125 (TR-ESOR, "Preservation of Evidence of Cryptographically Signed Document ") and BSI TR-03138 (TR-RESISCAN, "Replacement Scanning"). With the support of ecsec both guidelines were recently updated and adapted, among other things, to the legal framework of the pan-European eIDAS-Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) No 2016/679.

eIDAS-Regulation creates opportunities for secure and efficient digitalisation

Both the substituting scanning according to version 1.2 of BSI TR-03138 (RESISCAN) and the preservation of evidence of cryptographically signed documents in accordance with version 1.2.1 of BSI TR-03125 (TR-ESOR) result in organisational relief. Electronic seals that are assigned to legal persons can now, for example, be used in scanning processes to protect the integrity and evidence of scanned documents. These new options for the implementation of TR-RESISCAN have already been applied by first users in the federal administration, such as the Federal Railway Estate Authority – a federal authority within the scope of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. Thus, the annually scanned 250,000 documents with 1.2 million pages no longer have to be archived in paper form, but can now be electronically stored and processed in an E-File.

"The Technical Guidelines of the Federal Office for Information Security provide the basis for the secure electronic handling of economical and administrative business processes," adds Dr. Detlef Hühnlein, CEO of ecsec GmbH. "We are very pleased that the opportunities for trustworthy digitalisation offered by the eIDAS-Regulation are increasingly being recognised and used by authorities."

Current version of guidelines available at https://resiscan.de and https://tr-esor.de

The current version 1.2 of the BSI TR-03138 “Replacement Scanning” (RESISCAN) is available at https://resiscan.de and comprises in addition to the main document with the modular requirements catalogue, a test specification (Annex P), the result of a generic risk analysis (Annex A), answers to frequently asked questions (Annex F), non-binding legal advice on the use of TR-RESISCAN (Annex R) and an exemplary process instruction (Annex V).

The current version 1.2.1 of BSI TR-03125 “Preservation of Evidence of Cryptographically Signed Documents” (TR-ESOR) is available at https://tr-esor.de providing recommendations for a reference architecture including its processes, modules and interfaces as a concept of a Middleware, requirements for data, document and exchange formats for archive data objects and evidence data, as well as additional requirements for federal authorities and compliance rules for various levels of compliance
