Corporate Finance

Industry: Food (Wine)
Headquarters: Hamburg

Initial Situation

Hawesko (Hanseatic Wine and Sect Kontor) Holding AG combines online sales and stationary trade for wine and sparkling wine. Acquisitions and disposals form an agile group structure. In addition, heterogeneous ERP systems and asynchronous data flows resulted in a high manual workload. Ad hoc queries were therefore not only time-consuming, but also only feasible to a limited extent.

Hawesko Holding AG set itself the goal of making group reporting more transparent and faster. The optimizations were intended to facilitate the preparation of financial statements through automation.
