Financial Services

We saved 3-4 weeks’ worth of man hours by using Process Runner when we implemented the new company’s accounts migration leading to increased accuracy and reduced processing times…

A Leading Financial Services Company that is made up of a number of finance companies, that has grown organically, with companies with diverse technology platforms, uses Process Runner to speed implementation, and for long term data maintenance.

One of the data integration issues that this Leading Financial Services Company faced was getting massive amounts of initial data from a new company that needed to be loaded in to common financial systems.

This company researched the data automation tools on the market, and used the evaluation trial licenses of products to review examples from the web, before settling on Process Runner and opting for some specific training on a few key SAP transactions, including FB50 and FB01. During the evaluation and demo phase, Process Runner met the company requirements, including:

  • Innowera was very pro-active with providing help and information
  • The product licensing is flexible
  • Process Runner met the Budget requirements
  • Process Runner met all of the data integration functionality

After initial training, setting up the recordings and then making modifications and changes were very simple. This company estimates that their implementation team saved 3-4 weeks by using Process Runner to load their financial journals during their last implementation. It is also very important for this company to keep their DEV, QA, and Production systems in synch, and Process Runner is used to ensure this process.

This company has been very pleased with the support received from Innowera. During the initial test process of moving from the test environment to the production, the company team planned the move over the weekend, and ran into an issue on Friday night that was quickly solved because the company had access to Innowera members cell phones, and the weekend implementation was successful as scheduled.
