Unite with Serrala FS² Autobank

Success Story

Founded in 2000 in Germany, Unite is a PAN European web platform that connects suppliers with customers, facilitating seamless transactions and collaboration. It fosters sustainable business relationships, enabling businesses to build a better future in their supply chain.

Business Need

  • High manual effort: Despite a good automation rate, Unite's 5-person team faced substantial manual workloads, copying bank statement items into Excel and sending them via mail. 
  • Limited reporting capabilities: Unite relied on Excel-based calculations due to the lack of useful reports in SAP, hindering comprehensive insights into automation rates. 
  • Complex payment advice processing: Unite used a third-party tool with document numbers instead of real invoice numbers, requiring labor-intensive manual assignments to the company code.

Solution

AutoBank provides seamless integration with Unite's existing SAP environment, ensuring system compatibility and ease of implementation.

  • User-friendly rule creation and maintenance: AutoBank empowered Unite's team to create and manage rules without the need for IT support, ensuring agility and adaptability.
  • Permanent added value with conversion tables: AutoBank's conversion tables significantly aided Unite in areas such as insurance and car taxes, providing long-term benefits with minimal effort.
