Find me on:


A global manufacturer wants to be “ready to transact” in the capital markets, improve operational performance and and position for growth, but the challenges include:

  • Complex multi-statutory financial reporting,
  • Foreign exchange exposure and management,
  • Hundreds of monthly transactions with inter-company profits impacting inventories and fixed assets throughout the vertically integrated company,
  • 100+ lines of intercompany eliminations monthly,
  • International taxation,
  • No consolidated financial view,
  • Books prepared on a cash/tax basis,
  • No standardized global practices, policies,
  • Disparate reporting and analysis approaches systems,
  • 4 separate ERPs,
  • No data/systems integration

From a standing start to complete in under 9 months, the team was able to 

  • Remediate historical issues and accounting for 3 prior years manually
  • Close “year 4” on an automate basis in less than 3 weeks
  • Complete PCAOB audits for all historical periods
  • Develop and deploy the standards, policies, processes, checklists, desktop guides, etc. to standardize practices around the globe
  • Consolidate legacy ERPs
  • Deploy a comprehensive Close/Consolidation platform including handling FX and inter-company issues
  • Deploy an automate account reconciliation/close management platform with process automation, workflow tracking and data integration to upstream and downstream systems

The most important lesson for all involved?  Transformation is not an “occurrence,” it is a cultural value for a company that embraces Continuous Improvement, that breaks down barriers to information flow and empowers individuals to act.
