ODW ELEKTRIK GmbH – Electronics at the highest level

With the help of a central system landscape and automated processes, ODW-ELEKTRIK would like to maintain its usual high standards for its corporate processes as well. With a uniform electronic access system and an interface for the transfer of working times, security is to be further increased in the future and work processes simplified.

We were able to simplify processes and increase security at our sites. We feel well taken care of by Interflex“.

Christian Weiß, Partner / Managing Director.

Quality standards also include the infrastructure

ODW-ELEKTRIK, a supplier of high-quality cables, solenoids, and mechatronic systems, focuses on perfection. Uniform standards are required to maintain the high-quality demands. The company produces and develops its products at five different locations around the world. Using a centralized system topography and automated processes,
ODW-ELEKTRIK also wants to comply with its usual high standards when it comes to its corporate processes. With a uniform, electronic access control system and an interface for
transferring work time, security is to be further increased, and work processes are to be simplified in the future.

More security despite international implementation

Introducing an SAP HR solution requires an interface that automatically transfers recorded work time data. The challenge in keeping the system topography as simple as possible is to find a software solution that can ensure secure access control as well as the transfer of work time data. Furthermore, the solution should be scalable and thus, allow other company sites to benefit from the new access control system. From among several well-known suppliers, ODW-ELEKTRIK chose Interflex. The customer was especially convinced by the design of the eVAYO hardware series as well as by the software modules for visitor management and monitoring. The fact that the system was going to be set up by Interflex, and not by one of their partners, was also a crucial criterion for ODW-ELEKTRIK’s decision.

A holistic system for a smooth workflow

After the national and international introduction of access control at several plants, one of the company’s specialists will be trained by Interflex so that ODW-ELEKTRIK can autonomously integrate access control at further plants. Today, all plants are using credentials that are managed centrally by the Interflex solution. The online access control system and its numerous access control and time recording terminals are complemented by mechanical locking cylinders that are installed on administrative office doors. They are specified and individually controlled in the system. Furthermore, credential readers are used to control motor-driven locks on entrance doors to comply with insurance requirements. Desktop readers are used as the connection to the canteen solution and also for controlling access to computers for machine control. All operations are monitored and regulated by the central monitoring module. In the area of human resources, data management has been simplified. Time recording and the connection to SAP are working smoothly and provide convenience to the employees of ODW-ELEKTRIK in many ways.
