Start Up to Grown Up: Zalando's Treasury Journey

Technology is at the heart of Zalando, Europe’s leading online fashion platform’s, business. Their commitment to using progressive, current technology extends across their business, including treasury.

Key Points

  • Zalando’s rapid growth after its start-up in 2008 necessitated an expansion of its treasury department and the implementation of new treasury systems, beginning in 2013
  • SAP was initially chosen and subsequently the company implemented EMIR reporting
  • Greater automation and control has reduced operational risks and allows treasury to operate with a significantly smaller workforce than would have been required without SAP
  • Zalando now has a single point of access and visibility to all its bank accounts with automatic cash pooling and robust payment approval processes
