Munich, July 05th 2022 – SHS Viveon AG (m:access ISIN DE000A0XFWK2 / WKN A0XFWK), leading provider of a modular platform for the digitalization of risk, fraud and compliance processes, has announced winning Swiss footwear manufacturer Rieker as new customer. In the future, Rieker will use the DebiTEX module of the SHS Viveon platform to automate the entire process of credit management within the organization. SHS Viveon’s digital solution will drastically reduce the enormous effort previously involved in manual credit checks and trade credit insurance processes for Rieker’s approximately 9,000 business customers worldwide.
Ralph Schuler, CEO of SHS Viveon AG, emphasizes: “By switching to our platform solution, Rieker will not only be able to carry out checks for trade credit insurance much more efficiently and quickly, but will also benefit from the greater security of a fully automated process. In addition, Rieker will be able to identify changing conditions in submarkets in real time and react flexibly at any time.”
Rieker adds “Among the providers of digital credit management tools, the SHS Viveon platform convinced us because of their end-to-end solution that can be expanded with additional components at any time. Furthermore, it offers great flexibility for all our markets worldwide thanks to country-specific information within the tool.”
As one of the first customers, Rieker will be able to use SHS Viveon’s new digital infrastructure in the Microsoft Azure Cloud, thus minimizing internal IT operating costs. Following the onboarding process that has already started, the switch to the SHS Viveon platform should be completed until the start of the important Christmas business.
