Would you like to know what kind of experiences other companies have made with software from A+W?

In more than 1800 companies world-wide we control the – often highly complex –production processes of our customers. Millions of sheets are therefore produced with the help of A+W software, every day.

No investment improves a glass processor’s efficiency as fast and as strikingly as strategically planned and specific process optimization with A+W business software.

By keeping in close and intensive contact with our customers we create innovation for even more efficiency and satisfaction.

Glasprofi

"With the A+W Production system, we manage our complex product mix very flexibly. No more sheets are lost. And there are almost no complaints. We produce much greater quantities in the same amount of time. In addition, cutting has generally become more flexible and yield has increased significantly. The realtime optimization and automatic breakage pool also make a contribution here – poor sheets are remade immediately and can frequently still be delivered with the main order."

Float Glass Industries

"High-quality innovative products are just not enough to be competitive as a glass processor. Requirements such as adherence to delivery dates, flexibility and short delivery times are becoming more and more important, competing in this vein with factors such as quality and costs. Lean processes and far-reaching IT support by our A+W system, which we have been successfully working with for many years, contribute considerably to our success in a fiercely competitive market."

Glas Herzog

"It has always been my dream to manufacture IG glass online. (...) We already see the results of online manufacturing today. Material flow is much more complete, there is always glass from the washing machine, there are fewer downtimes as no glass is missing. You just have other options, production is much smoother."

"Our old order entry system was too much tailored to the needs of pure IG producers. A+W's software system A+W Business enables us to create every product right from scratch thanks to the bill of material concept. Every shape, every element, and every single processing step can be entered – before, we often had to do this by hand, on a sheet of paper!“

"The A+W software controls and checks all processes from entry of the order to control of the machines, on through to delivery of the finished products. Thanks to consistent bar code control and the A+W Production Monitors, we always know where each sheet is at any point in time. All commercial and technical data is available company-wide – and this without having employees running around all the time with folders and stacks of paper under their arms in order to determine what they must do with which sheet (…) All employees work productively! The focus is always on information, all the time and everywhere."

“My father always used to strive for the optimum production solution. This also applies to the software we are using. We have therefore been using A+W software for more than 30 years, and have never looked back. Another important criterion for us is service. At A+W, this is solution-oriented; their experts know their job and communicate excellently with our staff and machinery partners.“
