Make Group management more efficient and transparent. Comprehensive custom solutions and applications for Deutsche Bahn give you the freedom to focus fully on your financial and HR planning.

With more than 300,000 employees, Deutsche Bahn is one of the largest employers in Europe. DB Systel is a customer-focused partner for DB Group companies, offering solutions for all HR-related matters from HR planning to travel expense accounting. We provide advice, develop and integrate new HR systems and take the pressure off employees by maintaining, developing and operating existing systems. In doing so, we connect people, HR processes and technologies for a Strong Rail.

"We see employees not as expendable resources, but as capital that we need to invest in now to ensure the future of the railway. At DB Systel, we recognised this early on and offer a range of solutions to support recruitment, advanced training and workplace convenience in our human capital management portfolio."

Digital solutions for transparent financial planning

DB Systel guides the development of modular, IT-based services for financial operations at Deutsche Bahn. Together with our Group partners, we develop scalable custom solutions to meet functional requirements. Our overarching goal is to create central platforms for the financial processes of the entire DB Group. This is because standardised applications not only define workflows and responsibilities more clearly, but also cut down on manual processes. This saves time, improves usability and provides employees with a reliable framework for handling tasks.

"Our goal is to use modular services on central platforms to harmonise financial processes in DB's rail operations, to create standards, and thus to ensure greater clarity for managers, employees and Group partners. The resulting powerful, made-to-measure IT financial portfolio will provide the ideal foundation for the best possible processes."
