Karl Lagerfeld has strong international growth ambitions and this required a professionalisation of the HR organisation. The organisation used Loket for the HR administration in the Netherlands and Excel for the other countries. Various local providers were used for payroll. The aim was to replace and automate the paperwork and Excel lists in order to reduce processing times and the margin of error.
To enable future growth, HR ambitions and improving the role of HR within the organisation, Karl Lagerfeld chose Oracle HCM Cloud and Profource as implementation partner. They decided not to roll out all the desired modules at once, but to roll out in phases.
By using the FAST implementation method, we were able to involve the customer effectively from the beginning and work together on the best solution. In a short period of time, we managed to create a solution for the customer that helps them further in their ambitions to expand and we were able to take them along in their impactful digitalisation journey.
