The Challenge

Johan Milliau, CEO of Bleckmann, explains: "We were merging the two companies and at the same time building a new organisation in the UK. One of the companies we had acquired was very structured and KPI driven company whereas the other company is a fast moving entrepreneurial environment. To integrate them we decided to invest in a new financial and reporting system."

“This was an important and major investment for us, but now I have a more productive back office than before. In the coming years we can change the dashboards, and start building to meet to our own needs. I feel comfortable for the coming decade.” Johan Milliau, CEO of Bleckmann.
