About Dr. Lauterbach & Partner GmbH (LP.)

Dr. Lauterbach & Partner GmbH (LP.) is a medium-sized software and consulting company. Since 1992 we have been implementing leading ERP systems successfully for the print and packaging industry. Our customers are medium-sized companies as well as global players. LP. has created a predefined industry solution for the print and packaging industry based on the world-leading SAP ERP system. The solution is based on preconfigured system settings for selected SAP ERP applications and modules covering all the main business areas of a company such as accounting, controlling, sales, purchasing, materials management, production planning and scheduling, quality management and shipping. LP. solution components are added where industry-specific print and packaging functions cannot be covered by standard applications. As an SAP business partner, LP. works together closely with SAP AG on the further development and support of the industry solution. LP. is the first software supplier on the market to provide SAP-JDF workflow integration of the leading prepress, press and postpress execution systems.


LP.Best Practices – knowledge and experience for the print and packaging industry

A partner with a comprehensive, cutting-edge solution and a wide range of organizational and process know-how is a success factor for fast and economical software implementation. With its distinct focus on the industry and its experience from many challenging implementation projects, LP. provides a wide range of services (LP.Best Practices) which are harmonized with the requirements of the industry. These begin with strategy consulting, solution design, solution realization and implementation, and go on to include continuous improvement and support. Normal SAP implementation times can be reduced noticeably by the interaction of industrial know-how and preconfigured solutions. So efficient and economical solution operation in medium-sized companies is possible.



Competence in the sector and an understanding of the challenges our customers face are LP.’s strengths. The pillars of our success is a strong team of employees with many years of experience led by Ulrich Lauterbach, Michael Lauterbach, Boris Zeller and Michael Schultheis. Our objective is to perpetuate the success story and ensure continuity for all LP. customers.

With leading companies on the road to success

Our goal is to create constant added value for our customers with our products and solutions. Partners play an important role in this with their experience and competence. Apart from our partnerships with SAP AG and SAP Community, we work closely together with leading machine manufacturers and software companies in the print and packaging industry when integrating technical workflows with business and logistical processes in SAP.

Philosophy and history

To be successful on a long-term basis in the face of constantly growing competition and price and cost pressure, the packaging industry needs modern and efficient planning, control and information systems. Individual software and isolated applications fall a long way short of living up to the expectations of competitive industrial packaging companies.

That is why we analyzed systems from companies in other industries, with the focus on their applicability in the packaging industry. The outcome was the implementation of an industry-approved PPS system for a renowned packaging plant without any major software enhancements. That successful implementation of our ideas led to the foundation of our company in 1992.
Today we offer a preconfigured industry solution for the packaging industry, based on the market-leading SAP portfolios: LP.Packaging. The focus on SAP and the packaging industry has gained high acceptance beyond the European packaging industry. Our customers benefit above all from the superior standard functionality of the SAP ERP system, in which they have all the know-how and experience of users, engineers and developers. As a matter of fact, customers and suppliers of packaging companies also run SAP software, which provides new opportunities for deepening cooperation and cross-company communication.
