1-GROUP ACCOUNTING & REPORTING MANUAL REVISION

3-ADMINISTRATIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE PROJECT
Nurturing trustful relations with customers is essential to grow our business. Within this assumption, a fair management of the claim process is crucial to provide them with a flawless service. In the last period, due to several external factors, we are observing an increase of the number of claims. In this scenario it’s time for Barilla to map and analyze in details the different types of claims managed, the end to end process, the different stakeholders involved and the related figures.
4-MANAGERIAL ACCOUNTING/EPM-TAX CUBE/FINANCIAL PLANNING PROJECT
