Real Solutions… Measureable Results
Knowing that there was a significant amount of duplication within its global operations, this organization insisted on a detailed improvement portfolio to leverage existing technology, eliminate duplication and create efficiency.
We completed a global assessment of its staff roles and responsibilities to identify the percentage of time spent by individual, by activity and cost expended for the accounting, billing, accounts receivable, procurement, accounts payable, general ledger, and management reporting functions. A portfolio of improvement initiatives was provided and we assisted the CFO with the implementation of focused improvement programs to meet its operational goals. This organization realized over 40% reduction in operating costs as a result of a formal re-alignment of resources and tasks, movement of non-core processing off-shore, use of common technology tools and resource sharing.
