To serve information needs increased in the last years specially in the area of controlling, If an analysis and reporting tool was introduced, that the data from SAP, as well as from other systems could integrate, without extensions from SAP to. Two solutions were ultimately in the final selection. STAS CONTROL convinced us because of the high proportion of predefined business solution”, says Ralf Steinmeier, General Manager of Bette GmbH & co. KG from Delbruck. Around 80% of our information needs are already turn-key pre-configured in the different cubes for sales, finance and production management.

Currently only the preparation of the P & L cost me almost a whole day. In the future, this should be done within an hour. It is much better to invest his time, instead of laboriously prepare it in the analysis of numbers.”
