The ORBIS Application Management Center
Our Application Management Center is located at the ORBIS headquarters in Saarbrücken:
We made this decision deliberately so our ORBIS service agents could have the opportunity to discuss ideas with consultants and project developers right at our headquarters, thus directly accessing customer-specific settings and programs.
Other branches of our AMS Centers are located in USA (Washington, DC) and China (Shanghai), enabling us to provide comprehensive services to our SAP clients.
Support Methodology: the cornerstone for perfect work is a good tool
Which building blocks lead to success?
The ORBIS project methodology used to implement SAP and international rollouts guides you seamlessly into the service transition phase.
As early as the Deploy Phase, we involve our AMS service agents in the project work and documentation to ensure the best possible transfer of knowledge. This way, our AMS agents get to know your employees and the IT landscape so that they can provide targeted support once the GoLive Phase has begun. This approach enables a seamless transition from the Hypercare Phase to Application Management Services.
We transfer existing or already productive IT solutions to Managed Services based on the following transition concept:
Informative and up-to-date documentation provides the foundation for efficient Application Management Services, offering a suitable starting point for our ORBIS service agents to familiarize themselves with your SAP system or cloud and your company's SAP business processes. Do you have questions on the best possible way to prepare and update your documentation? We are happy to advise you based on your specific needs!
- Knowledge Consolidation
For SAP solutions that deviate from the standard, initial tickets are processed and documented together with you.
Our SAP AMS service agents process tickets and messages remotely and independently.
On the basis of framework agreements and service level agreements, we enter into a long-term service partnership with you and offer you legal certainty.
Transparency & Controlling
We guarantee transparency in our collaboration by providing you with regular reports. We designate an SAP Solution Manager responsible for your company, who will communicate with you periodically and handle all your Managed Services requests. The ticket system we use documents the progress of your SAP Managed Services comprehensibly.
Based on our Jira Service Desk ticket system, we manage and monitor our clients' incidents and change requests transparently and efficiently. At the same time, Jira enables you and your employees to access your tickets at any time and review the current processing status.
Jira supports our team in involving consultants and developers from our SAP AMS division into the solution process in the fastest possible way.
This integrated and transparent process makes us the ideal partner to help you continuously optimize your processes and improve your Managed Services KPIs!
