From construction budget to regular finance at RWG
A single integrated and user-friendly solution.
Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) handles the storage and transshipment of containers. The new, entirely automated, container terminal on Maasvlakte 2 was recently inaugurated. This changed the information need of the organization. The new planning solution rapidly provided reliable figures to both the business and the shareholders.
Enrico Douwens, Finance Director at Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) tells us: “With the inauguration of the container terminal we transitioned from a start-up into an operational organization. Previously, planning and budgeting wasn’t very complicated; during the building phase a budget is agreed upon beforehand. We only had to monitor and control the budget, something we were able to do in Excel. This was fine for the construction budget, but not for the regular reporting needs.”
“I wanted one data source in which you set up your budget and forecasts as well as report the actuals.”
“RWG’s wish was a single, united and user-friendly solution. “I wanted one data source in which you set up your budget and forecasts as well as report the actual financial results. At the same time, the budget holders can also analyze their actuals,” Enrico says.
