Integrating a Strategic Acquisition to Boost Product Innovation and Unlock New Markets One of Europe’s leading photo service providers, CEWE helps customers turn their photos into a wide range of high-quality products, from personalized photo books to greetings cards, calendars, and even mobile-phone cases. CEWE spotted an opportunity to expand into a new market by acquiring WhiteWall, a company that supports professional photographers with gallery-quality photo printing and framing services across both Europe and North America. To integrate the new business unit into its group, CEWE had to find a way to separate WhiteWall’s core systems from its former parent company and get a new IT landscape up and running in a matter of months. By harnessing cloud technologies and adopting best-practice business processes, CEWE and WhiteWall have built a highly standardized, audit- friendly and efficient platform that meets the business’s order - to- cash, procurement and finance needs.
