The highest priority in 2022 is the further development of the new ERP system after the go-live in Switzerland with SAP S/4Hana and RIB iTWO 4.0 as well as the preparation of the roll-out in the other countries. Our goal here is to further optimize processes and reduce complexity. The construction and real estate industry is in a state of upheaval, with digitization an important driver. This includes initiatives in the areas of BIM (Building Information Modeling), IoT, data analytics, and robotics for process automation. With our consistent implementation of the cloud-first strategy, our construction sites and locations will be able to use state-of-the-art IT platforms even more easily in the future.
