The challenge

The old resource planning application used by the Austrian Post (Österreichische Post AG), was running at its limits, as it incorporated entities like the planning of profit and loss statements, balance sheets, cash flows and financing. Strong delays were a massive shortcoming of the outdated system. To tackle this challenge, the Board of Management of Post AG therefore decided on a comprehensive redesign of the existing solution to support management decisions with the latest technology.

The solution

Tieto developed and implemented an integrated planning application on SAP BW IP, a solution mapping the complete business management planning. The result was a significant acceleration of centralized and decentralized planning processes and an improvement in their transparency.

About the customer

Österreichische Post AG is the country's leading logistics and postal service provider. Its main business areas include the carriage of letters, advertising mail, print media and parcels.


Active process optimization

With the new application, Tieto enables much shorter planning sequences as well as more efficient target and premise definition prior to planning.


Reinforced integration

The new solution enabled a complete integration of the value chain, a system-supported determination of balance sheets and cash flows, and a standardization of personnel planning.


Optimized usability

The user-friendliness of the application was optimized by a consistent look and feel, a role-based menu navigation, as well as ensuring the consistency of the planning via derivation rules.


The optimal planning application for every situation

Österreichische Post AG is the largest domestic logistics service provider. The branch network of Österreichische Post AG is one of the largest private customer networks in the country and offers its customers high-quality products and services in the postal, banking and telecommunications sectors.

Tieto realized one of the largest SAP projects in the recent past for Österreichische Post AG: An integrated planning application on SAP BW IP, which depicts the entire business’ integrated corporate planning (integration of profit and loss, balance sheet and cash flow).

Since the introduction of the new system, all key figures are available on a daily basis. Other key features include the process-based integration of individual sub-plans (for example, branch planning, IT, etc.) and a high degree of user-friendliness through a uniform user interface. Thanks to the system, all key figures are now up to date, making nightly batch jobs a thing of the past.

From the point of view of all project participants, the cooperation was very successful. Through the combination of business-strategic and technology know-how possessed by Tieto Austria, we felt well advised during every phase of the project.
