The Würth Group is a leading European distributor of mounters and fasteners. With more than 3 million customers, and 400 subsidiaries in 84 countries, the company sought to streamline order processing and fulfillment and gain visibility into its global operations. The company adopted a two-tier model for its ERP systems, deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX to its subsidiaries and maintaining a legacy SAP deployment at its corporate offices.
