APOS Customer Success – Hörmann Group

The Hörmann Group is Europe’s no. 1 for doors and hinged doors. More than 6,000 employees in 36 specialized factories in Europe, North America and Asia develop and produce high-quality doors, hinged doors, frames, operators, and perimeter protection systems for private and commercial use. The headquarters of the globally active Hörmann Group is located in Steinhagen, by Bielefeld, in Germany. The company, still family-run, recently recorded an annual turnover of more than €1 billion.


The Hörmann Group sends more than 1,000 Web Intelligence reports in different export formats and languages with actual sales figures to their locations and partners all over the world. These processes and the associated maintenance had grown dramatically over time, so they needed to reduce the manual effort involved, as well as the volume of mail produced. Most regional offices and partners get 20 or more emails per day with a document attached. They also wanted to reduce maintenance responsibilities for their IT department, and give recipient list control to the related business department teams.
