SAP Enable Now for SCHUNK

Overview of the Project

Already at the beginning of the project, the mission for SCHUNK was clear: to take knowledge management to a new level.
Learning should not be a detached foreign object in everyday work, but should fit in as seamlessly as possible and consequently make software rollouts significantly easier.

With SAP Enable Now, SCHUNK now enables employees to start learning exactly when ad-hoc gaps in knowledge occur. On this path to innovative knowledge management, Data One provides SCHUNK with holistic support – from consulting and implementation to the creation of templates and long-term support.

As a central platform, SAP Enable Now handles the creation, management and distribution of learning content. This makes it possible for SCHUNK to keep administrative expenses low and nevertheless enables employees to learn on their own initiative, flexibly and in a self-directed manner. SAP Enable Now supports a wide range of learning forms: Formal learning (e.g., providing traditional training documents), informal learning (such as sharing knowledge) and in-app performance support (all learning formats are context-sensitive where they are needed).

At SCHUNK, SAP Enable Now serves both as a central knowledge database and as a smart tool for direct learning support within third-party software thanks to desktop and web assistants.
Initially, the focus is on SAP GUI and the sales cloud, but BI and Excel knowledge are also to be passed on directly within the applications in the future.

Overall, the SAP Enable Now project at SCHUNK is characterized by particularly harmonious collaboration, in which the HR & IT employees of SCHUNK and the Data One consultants acted as a unit, which made the project successful and kept it on budget.

Beyond implementation, Data One also supported customizing, design adaptations, backend structuring, training content creation and management as well as content template creation.
In an on-site author training course, all questions regarding the preparation of documents were answered and valuable best practices were passed on, for example for the selection of the appropriate learning formats.

Thanks to SAP Enable Now, SCHUNK now provides its employees with a whole range of modern training options that adapt exactly to the individual needs of everyday work. IT knowledge is now passed on at SCHUNK simply, quickly, on-the-fly and at exactly the right time.
