What we do for the Royal Schiphol Group
Profource has worked closely with the Schiphol Group since 2007, and we are their preferred and main source of support for financial activities concerning the Oracle E-Business Suite. This means we provide financial staff, ERP process specialists, project managers and controllers. Profource has implemented the outsourced part the Schiphol’s accounts payable administration since 1 November 2010. This came about following a joint analysis of the cost-saving opportunities that existed within the process. Not only does outsourcing these activities to Profource allow Schiphol to minimise costs, it also allows the Group to turn its attention to other aspects of its procure-to-pay process. In addition, Profource ensures the continuity of these processes, relieving the Schiphol Group of the burden and stress of doing so itself.
