Evolving, innovating, investing: towards the postal service of the future

In order to consolidate its position as Europe’s number two postal services operator, La Poste is undertaking a vast program to transform its business operations.So in 2007, the decision was taken to embark on a transformation program covering the group’s Finance information systems, with a dual aim: on the one hand to provide the business units with a more powerful and personalized system, that would give them greater control over their business activities; and on the other, to consolidate all financial data to facilitate the production of a single set of financial statements for the parent company. To centralize all the data provided by its business units, La Poste decided to use the SAP BI module. Bull successfully delivered this project, from the general design to the point where the various components of SAP BI went live: the data warehouse, reporting tools, budgeting and administration of SAP NetWeaver and Portal.
