Innovative projects are honored, but above all the people behind the projects. And Karsten Keil also emphasizes this: "I am really proud of being nominated for CIO of the Year 2021 and that I made it into the top 10. But this success does not belong to me alone, but to my great team from IT and Digitization and the entire company. You have an idea, say it out loud, and you already have a staff of colleagues who fight tirelessly and with heart and soul together with you for this idea. That's what makes Schnellecke so special for me. And it's also the reason for this success."
But what exactly is it all about? In the fast-paced world of automotive logistics, Schnellecke focuses on digitalization and automation. In day-to-day operations, huge amounts of data are generated every hour, some of which is not transparent. In order to optimize just-in-time and just-in-sequence processes, become more agile and efficient, and counteract the lack of data transparency, Karsten Keil and his team created the Digital Control Tower (DCT). This centralizes relevant data and displays it in a user-friendly way in the form of a dashboard on all common devices - in real time. Manual data searches are no longer necessary and operational processes run stably. This creates added value at all levels.
