EPAM Aligns Business Processes at a mobilcomaustria group’s Branch
Following the acquisition, velcom faced a major overhaul in terms of business processes management to conform to European standards. The biggest challenge was to map velcom's existing processes to those defined by SAP modules, and especially to align the accounting plans that corresponded to the Belarusian law with the plans specified in IFRS (International Financial and Reporting Standards)/IAS (International Accounting Standards).
velcom turned to EPAM with the request to localize mobilkomaustria group's internal policies and a business processes template so that it could be adopted locally with expected delivery in 3 months' time.
The roll-out information management system is set to support velcom's operations in line with local business specifics, legal norms, as well as mobilkomaustria group's corporate policies. The system leverages the robust capabilities of SAP functional modules such as FI (Financial Accounting), CO (Controlling), MM (Materials Management), and SD (Sales and Distribution). Along with mobilkomaustria group's internal policies, the solution is designed to reconcile velcom's domestic legislation and accounting specifics with the international IFRS /IAS standards.
The project resulted in the following benefits accrued by velcom:
• better control of the enterprise-wide business processes related to financial and administrative reporting pursuant to both local and international standards;
• high system reliability and scalability to integrate extra applications to support growing company’s activity;
• EPAM’s mentoring to 200+ velcom employees helping them accelerate the learning curve;
• dedicated support team ready to handle any issues or questions connected with the system;
• minimized risks associated with large scale overhauls.
