Microsoft Dynamics NAV in manufacturing of precast concrete parts.

Success story:

Mönninghoff GmbH & Co. KG produces precast concrete parts for cable duct construction and water supply. The company is one of Europe’s leading providers of reinforced concrete cable ducts and manhole covers.

In order to be able to react quickly to market demands and to drive forward product innovations, Mönninghoff GmbH & Co. KG decided on an integrated solution with anaptis as a partner by their side.

Talking is silver, testimonials are gold:

Way out of the innovation backlog with Dynamics NAV.

Initial situation

“We used an outdated industry solution in combination with further software extensions. By using isolated solutions, we were unable to work efficiently. After all, it was difficult to get an overview of the article structure and the contribution margin calculation is unreliable. In addition, tools for production planning and a consistent storage management were missing.

Furthermore, our processes were not sufficiently or inter-divisional represented. Even if we expected resistance and lack of acceptance of the employees, it was time for us to use an integrated ERP solution. We had already considered some industry solutions. However, these couldn’t be adapted to the extent we needed it.”

Challenges at a glance:

  1. Outdated industry software in combination with software extensions
  2. lack of interdepartmental mapping of processes
  3. unreliable contribution margin accounting
  4. missing overview of article structure and production planning
Agile ERP-Einführung


“We needed a solution that replaces all isolated solutions and maps all departments so that we can finally work efficiently. We also needed a reliable tool for production planning and end-to-end warehouse management.“

Lars Lindemann, IT Manager, Mönninghoff GmbH & Co. KG

“Without Dynamics NAV and anaptis we would not have been able to meet the increased demands of our customers. In our industry, the dynamics of the manufacturing processes must be transparent so that we can get an accurate overview of the output at any time.”


“Ultimately, we chose to partner with anaptis for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The system is open and independently customizable, which was an important factor for us. In addition, the development plan is transparent by Microsoft, so you always know as a user, which renewals are pending.

As indicated earlier, we feared that our employees would not accept the new system. We counteracted this by initially introducing and checking the ERP solution only for individual key users of the specialist departments. This allowed us to ensure that all processes were reproduced in real-time. Ultimately, the benefits of the new software have convinced all employees. The scalability of Dynamics NAV always gives us the advantage of rethinking and adapting processes.

All in all, with the use of Dynamics NAV, we have caught up with our innovation backlog and taken a new path. Dynamics NAV supports our daily work along our core and support processes.

Above all, the production planning and control including the production data collection has been extensively optimized. In addition, we now benefit in everyday life from a consistent inventory management and better cost calculation. In addition, a formal description language was developed for the maintenance of the master data in order to establish a standard for the description of articles, for example.”

Enhancements at a glance:

  1. away from the innovation backlog
  2. merging of all processes
  3. production planning and control
  4. connection of the production data acquisition
  5. continuous warehouse management
