Efficient Processes For Customer And Vendor Master Records

The FIEGE Group manages all business master data through a central data base. The entire company benefits from the consistent records. FIEGE is facing a challenge that many multinational companies know: employees in several countries record numbers and information in different systems. To avoid errors due to isolated databases and integrated processes to enable customers and vendors for 40 operational branches were recorded centrally ERP in the past in SAP. As this was among other things associated with high personnel costs in financial accounting, FIEGE sought a solution to support the investment and change processes for master data and to reduce the burden in financial accounting. Today controls and maintains the FIEGE Group their customer and vendor master records for all companies which manage their accounting ERP SAP, centrally with SAP NetWeaver master data management (SAP NetWeaver MDM). Thus, these companies will have consolidated master data. For the implementation of the new master data solution an experienced partner to the side stood the FIEGE Group with IBSolution.

The Heilbronner consultancy led many SAP NetWeaver projects on the target and provides in-depth technology and process expertise from a single source. The FIEGE Group every month about 700 new customers and vendors creates. Addition, there are numerous changes and the processing of rejected applications. To the end of the month the number of these requests has grown so strongly, that the financial accounting on external support was dependent on. That slowed down the processes, many processes of the operating companies bogged down over without the necessary information so that the master data processing evolved more and more to the eye of the needle. IBSolution experts therefore recommended to create a uniform data base and maintenance structure NetWeaver MDM with SAP. The new software supplied current and consistent data to all connected sites. Accessed by the user on the central database through a Web interface and existing master records from there in the local systems can be take over – and apply for new records and changes.

Should a master record are newly created or changed, employees using the same input mask can enter all available values. Before you send the master data requirement, the application checks whether the information completely and are valid. Via an automated workflow, the central financial accounting releases the data. The software then submits the updated master records regularly on all connected systems. In addition, duplicates are recognized when entering. “Thus we relieve the financial accounting master data processing and provide needed information without delay,” Michael Bosse, head content summarizes of business applications at FIEGE.
