Striding into the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Industry 4.0, Smart Factory, Big Data – these topics are the daily business of abat, an international SAP service provider, owner-managed and a consense client since 2011. Over these five years, abat has almost doubled its turnover and our assignments for this IT specialist have grown as it has. It’s about change on all levels: innovation cycles have become shorter, processes more interconnected and clever people even more sought-after. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is already part of our daily business with abat. It all started with work for the trade press; today we present the entire abat story internationally and interdisciplinary.

We are linked with consense by many years of successful cooperation. Especially in this age of digitalisation, processes and structures change all the time. As an IT service provider, we have to react to this quickly. In consense we have a good partner that flexibly provides us with communications that are suited to us, whether this is for press work, marketing, or our internal bond with our employees. We value this diversity.
