Joerg Opperbeck, A/R Accounting & Credit Management, CLAAS KGaA mbH, Germany

"We had a high level of manual effort when posting bank statements, both in the area of bank accounting and in the area of accounts receivable. We were therefore looking for ways to increase efficiency in these areas.

    Compared to alternative solutions on the market, BPI very quickly convinced us with the prospect of being able to work with a specialized provider with fast support.

      Since the first go-live of EBS Workbench in September, CLAAS has already posted a six-digit number of account statement items via EBS Workbench. The degree of automation is now well over 80%.

        One of the biggest advantages of EBS Workbench for us is that customizing the tool (adapting the posting rules) can be done comparatively easily by key users in the finance department. Here, the finance department itself is the driver of automation.

          We also value the following points in particular when working with EBS Workbench today:

          • User-friendly interface
          • Simple post-processing of non-automated incoming payments (one-screen transaction)
          • Good analysis options for non-automated items
          • Rolling out the tool to decentralized CLAAS companies creates transparency about the current payment transactions and their posting within the CLAAS group
          • The transparency gained creates opportunities to harmonize processes even in decentralized CLAAS companies"
