Going through a finance transformation has massive benefits for the organisation undertaking if it is supported in the right way. Typically, executives want to free up their teams from being consumed in processing and preparing data so they can add more value to their businesses. Some of this is a symptom of time savings and improving accuracy which can result in better decision making.
Here are the typical benefits by undertaking such strategic initiatives:
Time savings for the team or organisation
Better accuracy of data
Single source of truth
Scaling business operations
Connecting functional areas
Eliminating manual processes
EXAMPLES OF OUR PROJECTS
Program to systemise on a mature site
At a mature site with a large user base the engagement was essentially a whole program of improvements to enhance its budgeting and forecasting processes through systemising its offline models to free up people’s time and have a more reliable source of truth. This was over a 12 mth+ timeframe.
Organisation growing up
At another client which had grown rapidly and hadn’t invested heavily along the way in its finance systems, the engagement involved cataloging the data in a way that it could be transported into an ERP system once they have the budget and resource availability to kick this off. This whole process took around 9-12 months to complete.
On a path to eliminate manual processes
More recently we were involved in a Microsoft Dynamics 365 implementation for a growing organisation with a lot of opportunity to automate manual processes. The initial roll out took approx. 6 months from kick off.
