The Bühler Group employs 10,000 people in more than 160 branches worldwide. Together, the Group generates annual sales of about 2.5 billion euros. Given this background, it is obvious that the management of all subsidiaries, but also of the entire reporting system, is a highly complex task.
So far, the Bühler Group has performed its decision management based on Microsoft Word files. Organizational charts, participation files, and group charts had to be prepared manually. Workload and administrative efforts were correspondingly high.
Therefore, the goal was to implement a system that makes the heterogeneous international structure visible at the push of a button. In the end of 2013, Bühler Group started to investigate up-to-date software solutions to sustainably increase the efficiency and quality of data in order to handle corporation-wide investment management.
