Deploying for independence
Following its acquisition, a Sydney-based global fund manager needed to fully break away from its previous company’s systems and adopt a new cloud-based IT service desk, core financials and HR system. Global visibility and transparency of all financial entities was essential, along with a simplified general ledger structure, a chart of accounts that reflects the business accurately, and more advanced analytical reporting. The fund manager also wanted to eliminate regional differences and consolidate the business following years of acquisitions. Workday Financials provided the right flexibility and, together with Accenture, the business set about creating a clean slate.
