Business Issue

The client application landscape was an unintegrated environment and not supported. Their financial reporting was at risk with manual processes and data integrity issues. Audit findings suggested the older technology relied on manual, defective controls to assure mission-critical business information. Senior Management was not experienced in ERP transformation: the approach, methodology, resource commitment or cost considerations.

Solution

Jefferson Wells developed a strong governance model for risk management insight, client process ownership, and communication planning. We provided future state process definition, GL accounting structure and reporting design. Jefferson Wells instituted a project management methodology with controls that met audit and compliance requirements. In addition, Jefferson Wells managed third party system integrators.

Results

As a result, the client now has a best-in-class financial solution including:

 -Standardized financial reporting

 -Process automation mitigated risk of manual processes; instituted preventative controls

 -Increased business integration with self-service procurement processes
