IT security

The Geberit Group is continually working to improve its IT security. This includes taking defensive measures against cyberthreats as well as detecting and dealing with any cyberattacks efficiently. Extensive measures have been established in the interests of business continuity.

The company’s IT systems undergo a comprehensive and detailed security check – including the ongoing assessment of newly emerging risks – involving the input of external specialists on a regular basis. The latest checks confirmed a good level of security. All in all, Geberit is thus comparable to industrial companies of a similar size and complexity.

SAP S/4HANA project

With the new SAP S/4HANA IT system, one of the biggest IT projects in the history of the company was successfully rolled out across the Group at the end of November 2022. SAP S/4HANA is a comprehensive, modular ERP software. Finance, Purchasing, Production and Logistics all rely on this software for communication, production and exchanging data. The S/4HANA project is primarily an update of the old SAP system, which had reached the end of its operational service life. In terms of IT, Geberit is now ready for the future and can use the latest SAP functions.

OneERP project

Implementation of the OneERP project – where the IT systems and processes are adjusted to the Group ERP standard – also continued successfully. In this context, the Group-wide SAP-ERP system in Germany was introduced at the beginning of 2022.
