Palfinger reduces work time for IT cost settlement with Serviceware Financial


The manufacturer manages all of its IT services with Serviceware’s financial management solution and has reduced worktime for settlements from 1-2 days to just 2 hours per month.

Improving transparency in IT controlling


Palfinger is a leading manufacturer of innovative lifting solutions. Through its steady growth, the company became a global player in the business. In an effort to improve its IT financial management offering, the team got in touch with Serviceware.

Palfinger faced the challenge of improving transparency in IT purchases. Stakeholders had trouble keeping up with numerous Excel sheets from various sources which all provided different, inconsistent numbers. The team needed a solution that would allow them to consolidate pricing, calculation, and settlement data of their services in a centrally available manner.

The monthly expenditure for the settlement of IT costs is now down to a mere two hours. Without the financial management solution, we required one to two days every month.
