Katerra innovating construction with SAP S/4HANA

Check out this video how Katerra is innovating in the US construction industry with SAP S/4HANA.

As a vertically integrated organization located in the US, Katerra innovates in all aspects of architecture & construction, including design, building, renewable energy, and supply chain. Using SAP S/4HANA to support their end-to-end business processes, Katerra is creating a new business model that is designed to revolutionize their industry.

Although they actually build houses they define themselves more as a “technology company” optimizing the development, design, and construction of building.

Grace Liu, VP of IT at Katerra, also took part in the SAP S/4HANA Customer Panel at SAPPHIRE this year. There she explains the business model in more detail and why S/4HANA was the perfect fit for end-to-end process integration. You can check out the video recording on SAP-s website.

In Europe Katerra is not alone. The same business model and principles are applied by SWISS PROPERTY, a total property life-cycle group changing the way real estate is developed, built and managed in Switzerland by adapting automotive principles in prefab production, digitalisation and lean methodology in all stages. It should be no surprise that they are our clients and also using SAP S/4HANA. In fact, SWISS PROPERTY was the first company in the world to go live with the SAP S/4 HANA Enterprise Management solution.

INTELSYS.build uses SAP S/4HANA as the core platform for running business processes. This means that INTELSYS.build users have the same platform and technological capability as Katerra and SWISS PROPERTY. But now we take it a step further by seamlessly integrating BIM with SAP application thanks to Autodesk Forge technology.
