Say what you want about 2020, but this year was special. It demanded strong nerves, flexibility, and creative thinking from everyone at opesus. Qualities that we cultivated before and always like to use. Nevertheless, we were forced to approach the year in a different way than we were used to. We look back at 2020 with some wistfulness about missed personal encounters and the limitations that we had overcome. On the other hand, we are happy about the things that we managed and implemented together despite the challenges – with success, fun, and our personal touch.
In our virtual Winter Office Week, we once again dealt with many exciting topics. One session was dedicated to sustainability – a topic that is important to us. We also want to live up to our company name: opesus is made up of the words operative and sustainability. Good reasons to take a fresh look at old patterns of behavior and decide on some innovations to improve on our sustainability.

The German industrial group for steel and metal processing (WSM: Wirtschaftsverband Stahl- und Metallverarbeitung e.V.) had an information day for its members on November 5th regarding the SCIP database. We were honored to have had the opportunity to present to the group about our SAP-based solution for SCIP.
opesus has been successfully developing sustainability solutions for SAP since it has started in 2012. We had two customers at the time, and we are happy to say that both rely on us and our software until this very day.

We are proud to be platinum sponsors at this year’s AIAG IMDS & Product Compliance Conference. Just like other conferences this year, AIAG had to move their conference online. However, the online set up mimicked a regular conference. Everything that you expect at an on-site event was just a mouse-click away. Take a look at the picture below of our virtual booth. We really enjoyed the set-up very much!
