van Laack opts for PORTOLAN EVM

International Financial Accounting Software on IBM Power i – AS 400

blog van laack The long-established enterprise van Laack decided to use the Financial Accounting software PORTOLAN EVM. At the beginning of the company’s deviating fiscal year on 1st May, 2013 the new financial accounting system has gone live. Since 125 years, VAN LAACK has been synonymous with quality upmarket shirts. Here, high quality standards for the company’s own product range constitute the benchmark for new suppliers, too.

The objectives for selecting a new financial accounting software solution were clearly defined: the old software solution MAS90 at the headquarters in Mönchengladbach should be replaced by a future-oriented software. In addition, an end-to-end integration to the available ERP industry solution “softwear” had to be ensured. IBM Power system i was set as a strategy platform. However, the company was looking for a native software solution running on this platform. With PORTOLAN, they found an ideal partner. Thanks to the highly qualified consultants, the integration to the ERP system could be performed quickly and easily.

The crucial factors for this decision were both the international availability of the EVM software and the PORTOLAN consultants’ experience in projects from all over the world. With EVM Financial Accounting, a central reporting is built by including the foreign production locations. “We are very satisfied with this software solution and the support provided by PORTOLAN. The software implementation has worked excellent and the project is proceeding on schedule,” says Mr. Franz Kalinowski, Head of Finance. The implementation of the next project steps has already been started. The Financial Accounting software has already been implemented successfully. Next, the Cost Accounting software will be implemented in connection with “softwear”. A final milestone will be the roll-out of the EVM software at the foreign locations.
