Eckhard Moos starts out as an independent SAP consultant. In this position, he trained consultants to work on a wide range of domestic and foreign SAP projects, who he then took on as his team.
From 1997, the first developers added to the range of products and services on offer.
In the summer of 2000, Ekkehard Seiler moved to Kern AG from his role as Head of Controlling at a globally active company. There, as a Member of the Board, he initiated the development of our main solution, which was successfully adopted worldwide, Kern OPO — the predecessor of today’s Allevo.
With Kern OPO, we managed to break through into the Controlling market in 2002.
The courageous endeavor to develop a planning software that builds a bridge between SAP and Microsoft Excel was awarded 1st place in 2003 by the International Controller Association in the “Planning Innovation of the Year” category. Since then, Kern OPO, and since 2009, its successor Allevo, have caused a sensation in the SAP scene. Starting in Germany, we have conquered neighboring European countries, as well as countries overseas and in Asia, having established ourselves on the international market for SAP-based business solutions in the fields of planning, actual postings, customization and reporting with SAP ERP.
In 2004, we changed from anTloop Technologie AG and began trading under the name Kern AG. The name is an acronym for “Komplexe Ereignisse Reduziert Nachbilden” [reproducing complex events in a reduced way], clearly demonstrating our corporate goals of offering our clients elegant, easy, efficient and effective solutions.
Since 2010, the company headquarters have been situated in modern, eco-friendly office spaces at Wentzinger Hof — close to Freiburg Central Station and offering the most beautiful view of the Freiburg city center and the Black Forest.
Christian Bieber joins the Management Board in 2013, making it complete. He has worked as a SAP consultant since 1999, and before he took up his role at Kern AG in 2008, he had worked as a Controller and Assistant Manager at the SAP Competence Center of a major public institution.
In November 2013, the Kern Americas Corp. was founded. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we acquire and advise clients in the United States and neighboring countries. As such, we were able to acquire our first clients for the Allevo, Cycles and Sparks products outside of German-speaking countries, in the Aerospace, Agriculture, Energy and Public Sector industries.
Our Board Member Ekkehard Seiler decides to leave his position on the Management Board and now works as an external consultant for Kern AG.
Now, there are over 40 employees working on the development, consultation and marketing of our tailored solutions for your business processes in a professional, yet friendly manner.
