The challenge

Manual process with spreadsheets and control issues

With the growth of Sourceability and the workload increasing significantly within the company's finance team, reforming and upgrading its financial process was paramount in becoming more efficient.

Furthermore, due to the manual process of data collection and analysis via spreadsheets from multiple global subsidiaries, reporting was complicated and time-consuming. This also made it difficult to detect errors and changes in data until the final reports were put together.

Budgeting and forecasting for a fast-paced and multi-faceted business

Additionally, it is crucial for the business to quickly evaluate and respond to actual performance against budgets and forecasts across different workstreams. Budgeting and reporting across different business units was vital in showcasing performance to investors.

With spreadsheets, putting together actual vs. budget reports is a never-ending race against time; and managing multiple versions of forecasts was a cumbersome and error-prone process.
