Project description

Hamann Motorsport has chosen the ERP software SAP Business One, which is implemented by our sister company Columbus Systems. At the request of the vehicle customiser, an interface to the COMPLIANCE | XPRESS software from AEB was also created. This software ensures perfect compliance. Depending on individual requirements, it comes with modules for sanction list screening, export controls and licence management. 

To finance its upgrade, Hamann GmbH chose our software leasing model. Ultimately, it was the flexibility of Columbus Leasing that clinched the deal with the renowned vehicle tuner. Thanks to the software leasing package, Hamann was able to convert the implementation and licence costs into easily manageable instalments. That means the company is able to use the latest software and benefit from greater efficiency and productivity.
Often the implementation phase is a decisive factor in data processing and software projects. Costs occur upfront, even before the new software is in use. Columbus Leasing naturally takes account of this aspect in its leasing model, focusing on the period of effective use.

According to the pay-as-you-earn principle, Hamann is only charged from the time when the software is up and fully running. That offsets the implementation phase as well as periods of service provision. As a result, the leasing period for Hamann GmbH is not scheduled to start until 1 October 2013. So, due to the installation phase, no instalments are charged for the first four months.
