Project description

Due to the global financial crisis in 2008, the global economy slumped. The consequent collapse of numerous markets hit high-exporting or export-dependent industries particularly hard - chief among them the machine construction industry. That is why Kurtz Ersa was forced after 2008 to tackle its IT and communications technology investment needs that had been put on hold because of the crisis. 

What the corporation needed above all was financial planning security in its future procurement of state-of-the-art technologies. With the conclusion of a framework contract for the years 2011 and 2012 covering a volume of EUR 500,000 per year, Columbus Leasing fully met the requirements of Kurtz Ersa. Also part of the package is our web-based asset management tool Christoph, which makes it easy to inventorize, manage, and allocate all capital goods to the relevant cost centers.
According to the framework contract, the old equipment is now being replaced cyclically and smoothly by more powerful information technology. Now our customer has long-term planning security without straining liquidity. Uniform release and technology statuses also lead to considerable savings in IT system support.
