Customer Quotes

By using SAP's cross-client and cross-system intercompany


reconciliation function, the number and amount of
intercompany differences within the German corporate group
was reduced significantly in less than one year. Performing
intercompany reconciliation as a daily activity has led to more
transparency and a remarkable speed-up of the fast close.
Wolfgang Wiedermann, Deputy CFO, Bertelsmann AG

The time required for IC reconciliation could be reduced by 50%


although the volume of IC transactions increased significantly.
