Crefo Factoring Signs Up for SAP Hosting Services

The financial service provider aims to support its growth targets by introducing the mySAP ERP solution. The implementation project is already underway. F-IT will operate the corresponding development system in its Weinheim data center. The productive start of the SAP solution is planned for 2007. Around 20 employees will then have access to an integrated mySAP ERP system with finance and controlling applications. The system will also support account receivables, dunning and debt collection, as well as applications specific to the factoring business. The integrated solution will provide Crefo Factoring with a streamlined and efficient means of mapping their business processes.
During the SAP implementation project, the financial service provider also decided to have the SAP system operated by an IT service provider, in order to ensure a high level of availability and security. F-IT won the contract with its F-IT Compact product line, a compact and reliable SAP hosting solution for SMEs. The SAP system will be run on HP servers in the future, using the Linux operating system and MaxDB database.
“We decided in favor of F-IT on the basis of its good price/performance ratio, its process expertise, and its straightforward advice to their customers. As a medium-sized SAP customer, we receive outstanding service from F-IT, whose affiliation with the Freudenberg Group gives us a high degree of investment security,” says Patric Meier, Managing Director of Crefo Factoring Pforzheim GmbH & Co. KG.
