“This transition has really been a fantastic step in every way.”
ALDI, originally German, now has approximately 500 locations in the Netherlands. For a long time, all processes in the company were the same everywhere – whether ALDI in Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal or Poland. In recent years, however, there has been more room to organise activities on a national level. So ALDI in the Netherlands chose the HRM & Payroll software of AFAS, and Salure helped with the conversion.
Sander van Schie, Director National HR Projects at ALDI in the Netherlands, says: ‘Internationalisation and professionalisation, that’s what we call it. That’s an efficiency gain. It enables us to respond better to local collective labour agreements, for example. But then of course you need a software system that makes it easy to do so’. So ALDI went searching for a software partner with knowledge of Dutch legislation, that is reliable, scalable and easy to integrate with other applications. Based on these criteria ALDI made the choice for AFAS.
