Implementation of a modern accounting solution

Aerosoldosen G. Stahle G. Staehle GmbH u. Co. KG is a long-time user of the Infor ERP solution Xpert. The MAS90 solution based on IBM System I was used in the areas of financial accounting, asset accounting and controlling. The "Green Screen" solution of MAS90 was replaced by the modern and functional interface of the Portolan EVM application. In addition to the convenience of a graphical user interface with various export functions (e.g. Excel), the functional depth and breadth of the Portolan application as well as the existing high integration depth to Xpert were decisive for the replacement of the MAS90 accounting.

We were also convinced by the competence, reliability, and implementation speed of the Portolan project team in the short implementation time. In the future, the application will offer many possibilities to make processes even more efficient and transparent.
