Over the past two decades, the client has grown to become one of the world’s largest online payment services. The company now does business in more than 200 countries with a veritable flood of transaction data, the targeted and efficient processing of which must be mastered. Merchants can accept payments from over 200 countries, get paid in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds to your bank accounts in 56 currencies, and maintain balances in your accounts in 25 currencies. This global presence results in a wide variety of tax and accounting requirements. In addition, the companies acquired as part of acquisitions must be integrated into the existing system landscape.
ADWEKO supports the customer in adapting the accounting solution SAP Smart Accounting for Financial Instruments (Smart AFI) accordingly. With the help of the ADWEKO Factory Model, the individual requirements of the customer are processed in sprints. Regular touch-point meetings serve to communicate progress, results and newly added requirements on the part of the customer in order to guarantee a permanently progressive course of the project. In the course of regular retrospectives, the cooperation between the teams involved in India, Frankfurt and the USA is continuously improved.
The Factory Model of ADWEKO works in a simplified way as follows:
- Creation of user stories: Based on requirements resulting from email requests, ITSM tickets or project progress, user stories are created to structure the problem solving process. These consisted of three main components: Analysis, Design & Customization, Development & Go-Live Support.
- Analysis: As part of our analysis, we develop design proposals for problem solving that meet the relevant business requirements.
- Test: After implementation of the solutions, the team develops and runs through extensive test scenarios. This ensures a smooth transition migration from the development environment to the customer’s productive systems.
- Optimization: If optimization potentials are uncovered during the analysis and design process, the ADWEKO team describes them in a separate user story and presents it to the customer for decision. The aim is always to ensure a lean and effective process flow. If required, our software developers at ADWEKO can also be called upon. An example of this is the add-on
ADWEKO smart derivation comparator
which allows you to compare derivation rules across different systems, thus simplifying and accelerating the customizing process.
