Improving reporting process efficiency for DeLaval

Outdated financial consolidation system with a separate reporting system. This had to change.

Around 2013, DeLaval, led by its CFO, was embarking on a process to improve corporate financial performance. This involved reviewing all financial systems to ensure they were fit for purpose.

The bottom line identified by the organization was an outdated financial consolidation system with separate reporting systems for each individual reporting task. Significant reconciliation work was required. In particular, the organization needed to improve the efficiency of the data collection process and provide users with better visibility and transparency when exploring financial data during the reporting process.
