AQUAPOR, the market leader in private public services encompassing Supply, Sanitation, Waste Collection, and Urban Cleaning, extends its reach beyond Portugal, operating in Angola, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia, and China.
AQUAPOR faced a substantial challenge related to controlling personnel costs, primarily stemming from the extensive use of the company fleet and mobile phones by employees. Maintaining accounting control below the Cost Centre level was exceedingly complex and challenging, both in terms of uploading data into the relevant systems and reporting on that data.
To tackle this challenge effectively, AQUAPOR embraced ALLOS to implement a sophisticated cost per employee system. This system offered several key features to streamline personnel cost control:

The implementation of ALLOS yielded substantial results and benefits for AQUAPOR:
