Finance Applications for SAP Customers

Interview conducted by: Lynn Fosse, Senior Editor, CEOCFO Magazine, Published – June 2, 2014

CEOCFO: Mr. Treitz, what is the concept behind Trufa?
Mr. Treitz: I would say for the last twenty years, the industry has been very successful in generating software for supporting all the operational issues in the enterprise, ERP software, CRM software, supply chain management and all of the operational areas are pretty much covered. What we have not covered that well as an industry is to support decision makers. Today, decision making is supported by data, tools to “make the data” and reporting. In the end, as soon as the decision maker sees numbers, figures and graphs, these individuals have to start thinking about that by themselves. At Trufa, we are helping people to go to the next step, to simulate the future, to ask, “What if I would take a position and change the premise of my company in this way or that way; what impact would that have?” We are calculating this impact in dollars and cents; measuring the impact of the financial efficiency of the company on working capital. That is what we are doing.

Vorstandssitzungen auf Speed

Ein neues System von SAP liefert wichtige Informationen in Echtzeit.

[...] SAP ist nicht das erste und einzige Unternehmen, das die Arbeit der zentralen Gremien wie Vorstand und Aufsichtsrat digitalisieren und damit effizienter gestalten will. Auch das deutsch-amerikanische Start-up Trufa hat ein Werkzeug entwickelt, mit dem Manager während einer Sitzung die Veränderungen bestimmter Parameter und die Folgen etwa für die Bilanz simulieren können - und zwar auf dem iPad und mit Hilfe der SAP-Datenbanktechnologie Hana.
Gestartet ist die Idee unter dem Namen Scoop noch unter dem Dach der Heidelberger VMS AG. Dessen Gründer und Chef Ralph Treitz - ein ehemaliger SAP-Manager - hatte sich darauf spezialisiert, SAP-Systeme in Unternehmen etwa hinsichtlich ihrer Effizienz zu vermessen. Als er von Hana hörte, kam ihm die Idee. Mit Scoop können etwa Finanzvorstände extrem schnell simulieren, mit welchen Hebeln sie ihr Betriebskapital senken können.[...]
