TIP reports impress users not only by visualising presenting data but particularly due to the up-to-date data which are sourced from numerous systems while at the same time providing optimal performance. Our clients enjoy this latter feature primarily due to the work of our interfaces team, which has now been significantly bolstered through the addition of Peter. After graduating with a degree in information management, Peter shifted his focus at the Know-Center in Graz to two key issues relevant to our day-to-day business: data-driven business and big data analytics. Data integration and real-time data processing fascinated him to such an extent that he made this the topic of his doctorate at the Technical University of Vienna. We couldn’t have asked for more expert knowledge. We are delighted to have been able to convince Peter to join our team and are looking forward to his fresh ideas.
A big „thank you“ goes to the numerous clients who attended the 15th TIP Annual User Meeting in Frankfurt. There was no place left at the biggest conference room that THE SQUAIRE has to offer. The visit was definitely worth the trip: The presentations were followed with great interest and the audience actively participated in the panel discussion on bank charge monitoring. The agenda was particularly exciting this year – the presentation of the Excel Cube from POLYTEC opens up completely new possibilities for the preparation of reports by functional departments. Peter Mitterbaur only needed a few clicks to create a report and to absolutely wow the audience.
The next clients on stage were Christine Pitzen (Deutsche Post) and Regina Deisemann (Vorwerk) who discussed with Hubert Rappold the benefits of an automated bank charge monitoring solution. Their conclusion was clear: the effort is definitely worthwhile! Besides the obvious advantage of detecting incorrect charges they pointed out that the optimisation of internal processes has even a higher positive impact on cost. Both described the monitoring as a „win/win“-situation for corporates AND banks as the latter also gain more information on their client relationships. Their main advice: Get started now and contact your bank to get electronic bank charges.
Also very impressive was the fastest TIP implementation so far presented by Britta Baier from TAKATA. The great efforts by all involved combined with highly efficient teamwork made it possible to complete the first cash flow forecast and financial status after ten working days. A huge success not only for TAKATA but also for TIP team. Furthermore the TIP team presented the application roadmap 2016/17, the new Workflow Module, showed how the integration of TMS and ERP systems can work with TIP and gave an insight into the new SAP HANA technology.
In short, a very entertaining day with a varied program, great speakers and guests and a relaxed atmosphere in Frankfurt!
The German-Austrian relationship seldom works as good as at TIPCO. While Vienna is of course still our main base, we strive to provide our customers in Germany with direct support while minimising the travel distance and time. Therefore we are especially pleased that we were able to recruit Hanna Böhm as a consultant who will represent TIPCO in Germany. Hanna has six years of treasury experience of which she spend 4.5 at “Schwabe, Ley and Greiner”. In 2015 she moved back to Bonn, her hometown, where she finished her Masters degree in finance at the Goethe-University Frankfurt a. M. Hanna has the experience, know-how and innovative thinking our customers require. We are thrilled that we were able to convince Hanna to join TIPCO and are looking forward to working with her. Hanna, it is great to have you here!
The international real estate group will soon handle its treasury reporting using the Treasury Information Platform TIP. Due to the web-based platform all subsidiaries in the core markets Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Rumania, Poland and Moscow soon will be able to enter their data decentrally and as a result decrease the workload for the central treasury department. For Immofinanz it was especially important to find a solution with a particularly flexible system architecture in order to customise it for the individual requirements of the property business. With TIP, Immofinanz can even display data of individual objects in its cash flow forecast and at the same time automatically transfer existing data via interfaces, thereby avoiding manual input. With this principle TIP is able to generate a group-wide financial status and a currency-specific liquidity forecast representing Immofinanz’s real estate landscape in the most detailed and reliable way. The first 3 modules have been implemented in April 2016, more are about to follow. We thank Immofinanz for the trust placed in us and are looking forward to our future working relationship!
„Welcome back“ is not the correct term as our former colleague from „Schwabe, Ley & Greiner“-times does not return to SLG but to TIPCO! Martin is the perfect addition to our team as he unites six years of experience as a Treasury consultant with the knowledge of our Treasury Information Platform TIP. He did not only „witness“ the development of TIP from next doors but also ran several TIP projects while being consultant for SLG. In the last years he collected considerable practical experience in his position as Head of Treasury for an Austrian machine construction company. This perspective allows him to identify and to meet the needs of our clients. In his new position as Head of Consulting he will primarily be responsible for the future orientation of TIP and the supervision of our projects.
At the beginning of July our SAP-HANA-experts Gerald Dorrer, Christoph Peyerl and Georg Pitsch successfully passed their SAP-HANA-Solution-Consultant exam. As a result TIPCO is now an official SAP service partner. The innovative SAP-HANA database enables companies to improve the efficiency of their treasury processes without having to leave the SAP-system. Few systems create more transparency and ensure trouble-free procedures – a good reason for customers to investigate the opportunities that arise with the use of SAP-HANA. Our colleagues are now officially certified to help you with this. We are very pleased and congratulate our three experts.
This month we are pleased to welcome two new employees at TIPCO – in addition to Tabea, Haimanot Abebe will also join the team. Haimanot will support our application and development team. Born in Ethiopia, Haimanot came to Vienna more than twenty years ago where she obtained her master’s degree in business informatics at the TU Wien. Before joining TIPCO she worked for Objentis and Avedos. Her technical knowledge of the financial sector on the one hand and software development on the other, makes her the perfect addition to the team. We are very pleased, that she decided to join TIPCO. Welcome, Haimanot!
Our German-based crew is growing: Tabea Niederhagen will be responsible for advising our German customers onsite together with Verena Romberg and Martin Winter. We have known her for years and are very happy that she has agreed to become a member of our team. Tabea was responsible for reporting at the treasury department of HOCHTIEF therefore she has excellent professional knowledge and technical skills regarding systems, reports and interfaces. Welcome, Tabea, we are happy to have you on board!
