Status quo and objectives
Constant growth in terms of corporate structure unavoidably leads to a heterogeneous system landscape which entails a considerable workload for the central treasury department, particularly with regard to reporting. It was for this reason that HOCHTIEF was looking for an efficient and practical solution which could be implemented at all subsidiaries and enjoy high acceptance levels. “We were looking for a system which simply compiles treasury data and which can be actively used by all group subsidiaries. Simple-to-use and reliable reports are as important as the fact that our decentralised subsidiaries are able to capture and upload their treasury data speedily and easily.”
The first step was to outline the desired analyses and set up the master data. After this, the various systems were integrated into TIP step by step. A two-way data exchange was established for the PMS treasury management system. Where necessary, the subsidiaries captured additional data manually. The central treasury department was trained in the use of BusinessObjects and prepared analyses without the involvement of TIPCO. Due to its user-friendliness, EMIR reporting was also integrated into TIP and automated.
- Partially automated exchange of data between upstream and downstream systems.
- Integration of decentralised subsidiaries via web-based data-input user interfaces.
- Independent setting up of reliable reports via the central treasury department.
- Implementation of automated EMIR reporting.
