S&T Hungary (UNITIS) implements SAP for Fejérviz
Greater quality in billing, logistics, administration and financial processes
State-of-the-art billing system
"In the second phase of the project, the latest version of SAP IS-U/CCS 4.72 was implemented as a billing system for public utility services related to the main services of the company,” said Lajos Zsebők, Project Manager for IS-U and Chief Engineer for Communication and Quality Assurance. “This second phase realised one of the most important objectives of the project - a state-of-the-art billing system with a higher level of support has replaced the former one, which was separately operated in the traditional manner. The new system will better meet the changing market expectations.”
Increased quality for clients
After a six-month test phase, all Fejérviz clients received invoices generated by the IS-U system. Complaints management was also moved to SAP, along with the administration of water meters, which are now integrated with the main system. “mySAP ERP and its IS-U module can be used as a real tool. Daily routines have become more manageable, company functions are dealt with more precisely and in a more controllable way. In addition, detailed, up-to date data that can be displayed and grouped according to our needs is made available to help us with pricing and making other business decisions,” explained Chief Accountant Ferenc Marosvári. “As a result of reliable and controllable operations, we experienced general quality improvement on the consumers’ side as well. Based on the more complex data analyses, we can plan maintenance and development work more accurately. The number of billing and other complaints has decreased, and we can provide authorities and our partners with more precise data in terms of waste management, sewerage attachments and consumption. In order to improve our services, we are planning further developments in the fields of lease billing, debt collection, application of double-factor fees, and a geographic information system relying on the firm foundation that has been created at Fejérviz by the implementation of mySAP ERP IS-U.”
