In 2015, Intelligent Studios began implementing Xeelo as part of the overall ERP Transformation project underway at Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME”), to help improve the usability and user friendliness of business processes & workflows linked to their Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 solution.

During the rollout of AX 2009, CME management determined it would benefit from an additional layer of technology on top of their ERP system, to give it increased speed and control of key decisions related to managing their master data and approval processes.

After reviewing and piloting a number of leading solutions on the market, CME chose to implement Xeelo as a single solution that works smoothly in conjunction with their ERP and other business systems, as well as allowing CME to continue to meet their requirements as a publicly traded company.

Xeelo is currently used across all six countries in which CME mainly operates to manage key master data and corporate reporting dimensions.  Furthermore, Xeelo helps run many key business processes in the areas of
order to cash (OTC), purchase to pay (PTP), record to report (RTR) as well as managing documents within the company.

Xeelo’s usage by CME results in over 18,000 new requests a month created by almost 1,000 users in their footprint to help operate 145 processes, with 1642 workflow steps.

Xeelo is just what we were looking for. It gives us complete visibility on internal processes in one place, and has encapsulated in one platform multiple key functions that were previously spread across different segments, platforms and user roles. The platform helps us save time in decision-making, process planning and the implementation of critical business processes. It is a tailor-made solution that goes hand-inhand with CME’s strategy of increased efficiency. Xeelo was quite easy to deploy and is also easy for us to maintain. We have been able to improve our efficiency with it and truly at a fraction of the price of similar solutions in the market.Joy Bellefontaine
