Zanders assists in MBO of Spant! theater
Spant! in Bussum is one of the best known theaters in the Netherlands. Managing director Paul Haighton and financial director Bert Dijkstra have recently taken over the running of this cultural venue and conference center from the municipality of Bussum. It was the first management buyout (MBO) of its kind in the Netherlands.
launches improved SAP system
When Coca-Cola Hellenic (CCH), one of the biggest bottlers and sellers of Coca-Cola products in the world, implemented SAP in 2008, the treasury team expected great improvements in cash management and financial communication across the 28 countries in which the group operates. The reality was somewhat different, with the implemented version of SAP not interacting in harmony with CCH’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, called Wave 1. It was at that point that the newly appointed treasurer, Bart Jansen, decided to re-design and improve the SAP implementation – with help from Zanders.

Zanders supports APX-ENDEX in Belpex merger
The European Union is well on its way to becoming a single integrated energy market. More and more gas and electricity markets are being interconnected. The energy exchanges are joining in this trend. Thus the Dutch-British APX-ENDEX merged with the Belgian Belpex in 2010. The exchanges themselves organized the merger structure, while Zanders helped with the implementation.
The cash must flow as smoothly as the gas
Since the start of the economic crisis, many organizations have placed client friendliness high on their agenda. Marketeers know that it requires 70% more effort to acquire a new client than to retain an existing one. Relationships are formed with good clients; and those with whom you form relationships become ambassadors. Zanders cherishes its ambassadors and, consequently, invests in relationship management, quality and personal contact. One of these ambassadors is Nederlandse Gasunie NV in Groningen.
