Merger Integration, Shared Services, BPO exit
$15 Billion Diverse Manufacturing
The new management team for APAC region of a global manufacturer needed to quickly understand the profile of the finance organization in preparation to define merger integration plans and targets. While the other regions acted under a global program using a traditional consulting firm, APAC was tasked with driving its own program. The primary objective of the merger was operational synergy, therefore setting informed targets was essential.
Using the CI platform the data and analytics phase was completed in five days covering seven countries. We launched on a Monday and by Friday analytics were at the fingertips of the leadership team. They had detailed visibility to resources, cost, locations and accountabilities and could evaluate their organization profile using different dimensions and angles. APAC management was analyzing the profile of their organization before the traditional firm used for the other regions had completed their project planning. CI worked with the management team to interpret result, define targets and set priorities.
