For the corporate group ALDI SÜD, including branches on three continents, the efficient handling of national and international payments plays a central role. The migration to SEPA presented an opportunity for the german organisation to introduce optimization, especially in terms of automating the workflows and meeting internal security requirements. One objective was to operate the new system as central payment platform, allowing multiple departments in differing locations to access their data as and when needed.
In a pilot study, ALDI SÜD analysed a number of solutions before settling on Omikron’s MultiCash Transfer WebEdition. Contributing factors in this decision were the positive experiences made with Omikron products and a clear recommendation from ALDI SÜD’s main bank. Implementing a package of security measures running consistently across the various systems – the ERP system, middleware systems and MultiCash Transfer – ensured that the entire process complied with internal IT-Security requirements.
Alongside the software solution, ALDI SÜD and Omikron put together a service package specially tailored to the corporate’s needs. This guarantees direct support from Omikron as solution provider and access to the in-depth expertise of the specialist service team. "We expect our system partners to react quickly to new internal and external requirements", says the responsible IT Project Manager at ALDI SÜD. "Omikron has been delivering e-banking solutions for more than 25 years and has a strong reputation on the market as a result. Above all, we attach great importance to the future-proof nature of the solution, allowing us to develop and build functionality as we need it, and the guarantee of long-term support".
