Can you give us examples of a digital transformation within Treasury?
Probably the most notable example is the implementation of a promissory note based on Blockchain technology. But we are still doing a lot of testing. This means that we are checking whether and how Blockchain can be used effectively and efficiently.
In Treasury, there are many other innovative topics besides Blockchain. We recently had a workshop in which we developed concrete application cases for robots in Treasury. We have had “Pepper” (a humanoid robot) open our town hall meeting. We are currently checking if, whether and how we can continue using this technology. Along with this exciting work, we are also in the process of implementing workflow automation. This means that, in future, it will be possible to approve financial transactions in an audit-compliant manner by clicking on an app. That app would eliminate the previous paper-based process.
Why did you choose to work at Mercedes-Benz?
While applying for the dual study program, I was invited to assessment centers by a number of companies. But I had the best feeling here. Everything just felt right: the positive mood, the support, the atmosphere, the process and the favorable terms during the study program. Another plus was the opportunity to complete practical assignments and semesters abroad. For example, I was in Budapest and China during my study program.
