Challenges & objectives

Challenges & opportunities

  • Until 2006, Arnold Suhr worked in an outdated system still running on DOS.
  • Among other things, it did not work well with foreign currencies internationally
  • The company started looking for a modern platform and an IT partner with business knowledge.


  • SAP Business One is an integrated all-in-one solution, not a hotchpotch of separate modules
  • Arnold Suhr developed a personal bond with the original implementation consultants, built on content and financial knowledge. The company moved with them when they transferred to Amista.

SAP Business One is the foundation of our company; everyone starts it up in the morning. The system covers everything and the possibilities are endless.

With a remarkable 15% reduction in FTEs required in the finance department, Arnold Suhr pioneered automation and standardization. With equal numbers of FTEs, there was a 67% growth between 2015 and 2020.

The implementation of SAP Business One has enabled the company to gain real-time visibility into orders, costs and sales, and the recent addition of the intuitive web client has further increased accessibility. The long-term partnership with Amista consultants has led to in-depth knowledge of the business and reliable guidance on optimizations.

Amista’s focus on solving challenges within SAP itself has provided flexibility and continuity. In addition, the Elvy plug-in has optimized invoice processing, with 95% automatic processing of electronic invoices. The result is a streamlined, sophisticated enterprise well positioned for the future.
