Digital Transformation as Overall Strategy - 4th FIS Forum Shows How to Get There
With its 4th FIS FORUM, FIS GmbH is impressively continuing the successful series of events focusing on SAP process optimization. The latest event was entirely devoted to ‘digital transformation’: How can companies implement a digital overall strategy that includes all administrative areas and transforms them into the new digital world? On May 12, 2016, over 50 visitors (most of them sales prospects) met at the Audi Forum Neckarsulm to get to know more details.
The lectures held at this year’s FIS Forum were precisely embedded in the thematic framework of this day. Practice-based reports were given by FIS customers Audi and Getinge Group that use FIS solutions for incoming invoice processing and consequently achieve maximum performance in the SAP invoice receipt. Audi explained how the accounting department embeds itself as value-added partner into the digital transformation strategy and what financial potential Audi AG has already brought to light. Getinge, a Swedish manufacturer of medical technology, has implemented the FIS monitor solutions (including OCR) for invoices, purchase order confirmations and payment advices in 30 countries worldwide - based on digital transformation as competitive advantage.
ECM analyst Bernhard Zöller, managing director at Zöller & Partner GmbH, informed the visitors about legal and fiscal aspects of digitalization. The FIS team as well embedded its lecture “From the circular to the app” into the transformation strategy topic. Finally, the guided plant tour through production units A6 and A7 showed the status of Industry 4.0 at Audi and impressively underlined the framework of the event.
