In the past eight years, UniCredit Group has incrementally deployed 10 successful projects in three phases following a well-documented, high-level, long-term performance management strategy.

In addition to minimizing manual work, the web-based solution delivers consistent information, transparent audit trails and documented workflows across all processes, having simplified both deployment and maintenance throughout the group.
