What is a Shared Service Center?

In a Shared Service Center, the internal services of a group company, accounting in our case, are combined into a single unit. The day-to-day business of the accounting department, the support of the operational departments and the implementation of new accounting regulations are greatly streamlined if specialized colleagues take care of the individual tasks and if recurring activities are supported by modern systems.

Accounting is highly influenced by requirements and processes that are the same in all group companies. The processes can be easily bundled and standardized across departments. This is the basis for continuously optimizing processes through specialization, harmonization and automation.

Organized in a network of regional accounting shared service centers, we are very well positioned to meet the requirements of the company and its employees.
