ERP systems: Transformation into the digital age
Modern corporate strategies focus on standardisation, automation and flexibility of business processes. This means that, apart from customer needs, digital sales strategies must also reliably reflect the relevant legal and regulatory requirements. Yet in many cases fragmented and obsolete IT landscapes as well as isolated solutions that have emerged over the years prevent the implementation of efficient digital processes. Situations such as these are addressed by afb-CMS at all levels - front, middle and back-office – by means of an integrated web-based solution: from asset configuration and offer calculation to rating, scoring and decision-making through to the activation, amendment and termination of contracts. In addition, the product provides full-service-management functions, e.g. invoicing, service-card and claims management as well as contract accounting (sub-ledger) with a fully integrated dunning system.
The service-orientated architecture (SOA) of afb-CMS, its modular structure and standardised interfaces allow individual and flexible functionality and easy integration into existing IT landscapes.
More efficiencyEfficient, structured and largely automated processing of day-to-day business as well as automated review of documents and request for additional documents.
