With the acquisition of Pragma Informationssysteme, Bertsch Innovation becomes a leading supplier of solutions in the field of Industry 4.0.! By acquiring Pragma Informationssysteme, Bertsch Innovation has created the basis for process automation according to the Industry 4.0 vision. By combining the software solutions especially all machines already installed will become part of the Industry 4.0. space. Real time processing of machine and process data including the processing status of orders are made available. The information flow between and control of the upstream and downstream departments incl. the dispatch (logistics) is managed. in real
time. Thus process parameters can be changed promptly with optimized machine maintenance and efficient capacity planning. All measures lead to a significant increase in productivity based on the data collected.


Bertsch Innovation is a leading provider of product information management systems (PIM) and media asset management systems (MAM). With the epro-CAT software being the market leader in electronic catalog data delivery for all ecommerce marketplaces and the software suite mediacockpit being the preferred solutions for preventive maintenance as well as employee training on site. Despite all technological developments, the operator on the machine remains a decisive factor when it comes to the efficient operation of machines and industrial plants. As plants become more and more complex, operators need to be integrated into the information supply chain. A successful solution is therefore the "Knowledge on Demand", which, in addition to traditional training courses, focuses on knowledge transfer directly onsite, at the production machine. The success of such an ISCM system depends on not only the quality and quantity of the data provided, but also the usability of the respective touchpoints is a crucial factor.


Pragma Informationssysteme is a leading developer of commercial database applications for production planning and control (PPS) and production logistics / supply chain with integrated business intelligence application mainly in the printing industry. On the one hand, this market position is to be further expanded, on the other Pragma has with "Chroma" a fully integrated ERP system with interfaces to SAP, MS Dynamics NAV and DATEV as well as a (mobile and stationary) machine data collection. We see growth opportunities for the company outside of its original core business offering.
