FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT & BUSINESS PROCESSES WITH MULTI-COMPANY OPERATION

The Chimirec Group is a family-owned group specialised in the collection and processing of
waste. The legacy ERP system had been in production for 10 years and had simply become
obsolete, pressing the group to replace the software package. To avoid choosing a product that
exceeded the needs of the group, the utility company focused on SAP All-in-One, which was
found to be easy to implement, simple to use and very efficient. Today the information produced
by the information system is much more reliable, with complete traceability to ensure optimal
financial analysis.

A fleet of 320 heavy-duty vehicles collects 297,000 tonnes of waste from 40,000 customers. The group generated a turnover of 126 million euros in 2012. The needs of the group had changed and the former information system had simply become obsolete. The company was looking for a tool capable of supporting its growth, especially international growth; a group-wide tool with a shared structure. SAP Business All-in-One quickly became the solution of choice. It is a pre-configured solution that handles the needs of SMEs and met the company’s needs. All-in-One, whose standard version includes a genuine library of business process, allowed the company to considerably limit risks in terms of deadlines and budget. METHODOLOGY & FLEXIBILITY Seeking an integrator capable of providing long- term, human-scale support in order to establish a balanced working relationship, Chimirec turned to EoZen-SQLI Group for assistance. « EoZen-SQLI Group has shown itself to be very responsive throughout the project and adjusted perfectly to suit our needs, which have changed over time. » The EoZen team implemented the methodology recommended by SAP for the deployment of an All- in-One solution while keeping the flexibility required in the specific context of SMEs. The Chimirec Group is a family-owned group specialised in the collection and processing of waste. The legacy ERP system had been in production for 10 years and had simply become obsolete, pressing the group to replace the software package. To avoid choosing a product that exceeded the needs of the group, the utility company focused on SAP All-in-One, which was found to be easy to implement, simple to use and very efficient. Today the information produced by the information system is much more reliable, with complete traceability to ensure optimal financial analysis.

EOZENCLIENTTESTIMONIAL UTILITIES -SAPBUSINESSALL-IN-ONE « SAP accounting is identical to the one you learn in school, it produces much more reliable information . » Michel FontYBosch Chief Financial Officer Chimirec Group EOZEN France 42,ruedeLisbonne-75008Paris-France T/ +33 (0)1 53 20 86 36 Contact WASTE MANAGEMENT Luc La Barbe luc.labarbe@eozen.com T/ : +33 (0)6 50 68 71 26 WWW. EOZEN.COM TRACEABILITY & INFORMATION RELIABILITY What are the advantages of the deployed solution? The main advantage of SAP All-in-One is the great rigour of the software which, by complying with accounting standards, produces much more reliable, trustworthy information for the group.The other advantage of SAP is the complete traceability of information it provides, allowing for optimal financial analysis. ENGAGEMENT & ADOPTION As the project started, certain concerns were raised by several employees who were worried about being thrown into an overly complex, restrictive situation and drifting away from users. By relying on a network of in-house sponsors, those in charge of the project quickly demonstrated the relevancy of the chosen solution and transformed the initially hesitant employees into supporters. The easy-to-use interfaces also contributed greatly to the full acceptance of the new tool by the various teams at the headquarters and its subsidiaries. « This is a project that truly brought the teams together, who quickly took ownership of the new tools, and will be very rewarding for all users. » OUTSTANDING POTENTIAL Chimirec is now starting the roll-out phase of SAP BO business intelligence tools. These tools are seamlessly integrated with the ERP solution, which greatly facilitates implementation. Thanks to SAP’s outstanding potential,other projects are under way, such as the switch to paperless invoice management, hardware maintenance management, quality management, and supplier evaluation.
