WHY RECWISE

The team at Caserones were in part borne from another of our Chilean users. Knowing the capability of the application allowed for the Caserones team to make the decision to also implement RecWise.


THE CHALLENGE

The only partial challenge is sometimes the language barrier however with our templates and communications with the customer we soon had the instance of RecWise up and running.

THE RESULTS

Another successful installation for South America. The customer was happy for the transition from a non transparent system to a system that gave them overall visibility of the reconciliation process.
