Perfetti Van Melle, a privately owned company, producing and distributing confectionary in more than 130 countries, has deployed Hanse Orga’s AutoBank for SAP for bank statement reconciliation, replacing a standard SAP functionality. The previous process was time consuming and limited the availability of staff to work on other, more important tasks. Reducing the overall time spent on processing bank statements was a key driver for process optimisation.
An important consideration in the selection process for Perfetti van Melle was the integration and compatibility with its SAP environment, preferably fully integrated in SAP. AutoBank is a proven standard software solution that seamlessly integrates in the SAP environment as it is programmed in ABAP.
In early March 2009, Perfetti Van Melle and Hanse Orga International started the project to automate the company’s bank reconciliation processes. The entire implementation project was completed in only two months. Perfetti van Melle is impressed by the good results that AutoBank provided right from the start.
“With AutoBank for SAP we have found a software solution that fulfils our pegged requirements 100% and increased the efficiency of the automatic bank reconciliation processes significantly,” said John Gommans, manager accounting and reporting, Benelux, at Perfetti Van Melle.
