Industry: Electrical engineering

The MENNEKES Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co. KG, family-owned for over 80 years, is known for high-quality and high-performance solutions in the fields of industrial plug devices, electromobility and automotive. The international company group is not only advancing digitization in charging with wall boxes but also in internal solutions and processes.

MENNEKES Elektrotechnik GmbH & Co. KG faced the challenge of modernizing its IT system. As a specialist in IT solutions and system upgrades, CONVOTIS supported this endeavor. The remotely conducted upgrade project began with a detailed concept for the system transfer and the commissioning of a new archive server (OpenText Archive Center). CONVOTIS opted for a fresh installation instead of an in-place upgrade, renewing the virtual servers, operating systems and the database system. After a successful installation and data transfer, all existing data was integrated into the new system and thoroughly checked.

The upgrade included approximately 9 million documents in three content repositories and was completed in less than three months. In addition to the archive server upgrade, CONVOTIS also assisted with the update of the scan clients. MENNEKES has been using the OpenText archive for years for the revision-secure storage of documents, connected via the ArchiveLink interface to the SAP system.

The partnership between MENNEKES and CONVOTIS demonstrates how crucial expertise and trust are for the successful and efficient upgrade of IT systems. This project serves as an example of successfully overcoming technological challenges through professional collaboration.



The integration allowed for more efficient management of extensive datasets while simultaneously improving system performance. CONVOTIS assisted in transferring the extensive data volumes to the new system and also optimized access speed and security.

"CONVOTIS was the ideal partner for us to professionally and promptly out the upgrade of our Archive Center, thanks to their many years of experience with archiving solutions."
