Our client, an agricultural manufacturer, had global reconciliations that still relied on the international exchange of spreadsheets. Intensive data reconciliation and translation took the place of actually analyzing the data for savings and investment opportunities.
We replaced every “human” element in the legacy data flow chains with direct access to source systems across the globe. In addition, we engineered new access and ETL solutions that had been previously plugged by accountants, and replaced 20 tables with data visualizations for the Global Ops Leads.
Monthly financial reconciliations were condensed from weeks to days. By alleviating tedious manual work, key finance talent retention rates increased, as they had more free time to focus on value-add work.
