A company with 8 country finance departments was looking to improve management information flow, reduce costs and cut the time taken for the month end close. A change in ERP system was decided and this was implemented hand-in-glove with an overhaul of all finance processes. The outcome was the removal of 3 mainframe machines, rented at US$1m per annum, and the automation of the month end, leading to a reduction in headcount from 143 to 97 despite an increase to 10 country finance teams.
