Market leader supplying premium foods in Germany

Since its founding in 1930, the Käfer family business has grown steadily, becoming the market leader in Germany. The company employs over 1,400 people and has an annual turnover of around 150 million euros.

We spoke with Marc Eckes, Director of Corporate Development at Feinkost Käfer who shared the following.

"Käfer is a family business, everything is still very manual. No longer up to date! Staff is getting more expensive and we don't want to use people to push paper anymore. My role is to lead Käfer into the digital age!"

Manual business processes, simplified with Mobilexpense Declaree

With staff in different departments and events across the country, the expense process was a major challenge for the Group. Processes were largely manual and time-consuming. Receipts weren't always submitted, got lost, or were processed slowly.

Käfer was looking for an innovative solution for business development and digitalisation to move away from manual, paper-based processes.

Requirements and selection

Käfer's main concern was simplifying the receipt management process and freeing employees from paper pushing to concentrate on work tasks.

"With Declaree the process has been simplified: photos of receipts, available anywhere, quick repayment of expenses."

Smooth implementation process

As for the implementation process at Käfer, Marc shared the following:

"We've experienced Declaree to be fast and flexible. We are a complex customer. Declaree has been flexible in responding to us and helping us!"

Management noticed both time and money savings almost immediately following the implementation.

Why choose Declaree?

According to Marc Eckes and Käfer, Declaree expense management:

  • Meets all the requirements of the expense process
  • Is user-friendly and time-saving
  • Provided highly competent advice and support throughout the implementation
  • Continues to provide reliable, individual service with quick response times
