Success Stories

How does a successful Cornerstone implementation work?

Manz AG is a globally active high-tech engineering company with a focus on the automotive & electromobility, electronics, energy and battery manufacturing sectors, offering best-in-class production solutions for lithium-ion batteries and electronic components and devices. This makes Manz an innovative pioneer for the global megatrends of electromobility and digitalization. Manz is just as innovative when it comes to the HR IT landscape for its employees. Having already supported Manz with the introduction of Cornerstone Recruiting and Learning in the Asia region, talessio was able to provide support as an implementation partner for the Performance and Compensation modules. This involved implementing the annual performance review, target setting and salary processes. Manz shares their experience here on the collaboration and the course of the project.

Close support and expert advice

Right from the start, talessio and Manz placed great value on close and trusting collaboration. A dedicated contact person was available to Manz at all times and answered questions quickly and competently. Regular status calls helped to maintain an overview and clarify issues quickly. talessio accompanied and supported Manz throughout the entire project with sound recommendations based on system and customer experience.

Process optimization and system implementation

In order to find the best possible solution, the actual process was first mapped in the test system. On this basis, Manz was able to get a visual idea of the future implementation and make changes. talessio supported Manz in simplifying the existing complex process without changing the fundamental cornerstones. Thanks to talessio's many years of experience, system-side limitations were identified early on and solutions found. The preconfigured test system made it possible to transfer many settings directly to the production environment, saving valuable time.

"Our previous process was very complex and talessio helped us to simplify the process without changing the fundamental cornerstones of our process."
