CASE STUDY


Infrastructure Solutions

The Challenge: A client’s Finance department was operating under a spreadsheet intensive set of finance processes, across multiple areas of accounting. Solution: We developed a high-level strategy to identify system solutions and integrate them into its complex global environment in a cost effective manner. Timing was critical and an effective training program was put in place to change a very rigid corporate culture.

The success of the project was recognized in a number of ways including the promotion of two of the client’s project team for their efforts in adapting the internal culture as well as the bottom line profits achieved by the system implementation. The project also met the client ‘s requirement that all projects demonstrate return on investments including the improvement of human resources.



CASE STUDY


Business Intelligence Solutions

The Challenge: Our client, an international multi-line property and casualty insurance company, needed more complex financial analysis to meet regulatory and management requirements. While a long-term solution was being developed by the IT Systems Group, a gap existed in the client’s short and mid-term needs.

The client sought our assistance to identify the various FASB, regulatory, geographic and product line analysis requirements and to develop and implement an interim solution.

Solution: Our team met with various business leaders and stakeholders within the corporate finance groups as well as among its geographical regions and product lines. By fully determining short-term and long-term requirements, the team was able to craft a roadmap to solving the company’s needs quickly and efficiently, while laying the groundwork for the long-term solution.

Together with the client’s corporate FP&A group, our team established a centralized tool to collect, cleanse, standardize and aggregate financial information from 100+ product lines in 60+ regions. By establishing multi-dimensional hierarchies, the client was able to analyze financial results in greater detail.

Working closely with the company’s IT team, the requirements collected during each phase of work were integrated into the long-term solution. The reduced work load of the implementation team helped smooth the transition from the interim tool to the long-term solution.

Additionally, by creating a centralized clearinghouse for global financial data, the team was able to automate significant aspects of the quarterly SEC filings, provide more timely information to auditors and regulators, and enhance the level of detail provided to managers throughout the business. Further, by exposing the data through pre-formatted and ad-hoc reporting tools, management teams were able to meet analysis requirements independently.
