JCB is a major global payment solutions provider and credit card issuer. With more than 140 million card members, it has seen accelerated contactless growth among card members and retail partners over the last year during the economic uncertainty as its mobile payments increased by 30%. Source.
With the pace of change being forced by recent events, JCB’s European arm needed to update its legacy systems which were no longer fit for purpose and bring together its existing accounting and business tools into one integrated solution with clear and predictable costs. There was also a requirement for standardised processes across multi-company transactions and currencies, and compliance with local statutory and tax requirements.
The acceleration in the evolution of payments, a growth mindset and the impacts of Covid-19 led JCB Europe to seek out a partner that would meet their needs for an international, scalable business solution that would grow and adapt with them into the future. They turned to Codestone for its knowledge, experience, and capability to deliver SAP Business ByDesign within an aggressive timeframe and to help them realise global standards and business transparency.
