The Alfons Brass Spedition und Lagerei GmbH, a member of the Brass group, has existed for more than 70 years. In the course of time, the company has grown steadily and now employs 600 people at four locations. The group of companies has a fleet of 150 vehicles as well as a rail connection and more than 150,000 square metres of storage area.
Soloplan’s offer immediately convinced Markus Brass, CEO of the Brass group, when he was looking for a logistics software. For around 10 years, the company has been handling, among other things, the entire planning, fleet management, pallet management as well as billing using the logistics software CarLo®.
The decision to upgrade the accounting software as well and to cooperate with DATEV as a partner from now on was made in 2014. According to Brass, the main reasons for the market leader DATEV were, apart from the interface for the transfer of outgoing invoices from CarLo® to DATEV, the simple and intuitive handling as well as the additional features of a document management system and electronic banking.
The interface between CarLo and DATEV accounting on the basis of the DATEV format offers many advantages. All accounting-relevant data, including the execution date for the allocation to the correct tax period, as well as all the details relating to the client and the supplier master data can be transferred. Additionally, there are freely usable info fields available. Furthermore, the retransfer of open items from DATEV accounting is also possible.
“Thanks to the outstanding support provided by Soloplan and DATEV, the migration went quickly and very well. In the past as well, there were never any problems with the interface and if any changes had to be made, Soloplan always provided quick support,” explains Markus Brass.
Soloplan, as the official DATEV software partner for logistics software, can guarantee a smooth migration and continuously 100 % reliable functionality of the interface between CarLo® and DATEV.
Through constant exchange and very close cooperation, Soloplan and DATEV offer you the perfect combination of two programmes for you to be able to handle all your processes.
