Case Study

Implementing Adaptive Insights for Streamlined Reporting for a $340M Software-As-A-Service Company

"SLKone reigned in an off-track software implementation to ensure that business requirements were met appropriately without incurring more cost; all while working harmoniously with a perturbed implementation vendor"

Situation

  • The client was several months into a software implementation project for their FP&A function, but had failed to meet numerous deliverable deadlines causing the project to veer off course and be delayed by several weeks
  • Success of this was dependent upon coordinating between several technical teams, but due to numerous other commitments and a lack of proper prioritization the client had neglected this coordination
  • SLKone was engaged in order to assess and ensure that the implementation was delivered successfully and on time

Bespoke Solutions

  • SLKone was able to bridge the gap between the FP&A department, Accounting, Sales, and the Vendor to make up for missed deadlines and billable hourly overages from the Vendor
  • SLKone worked with stakeholders and developed custom datasets to feed models in the new software
  • Leveraging our prior expertise, we assisted the vendor’s developers with NetSuite and Salesforce integrations
  • In order to correct project mismanagement prior to our engagement, SLKone implemented a phased approach to implementation to ensure that the highest priority items were accounted for first

Leading With Results

  • SLKone corrected and implemented a new FP&A reporting software which was behind in billable project hours and several weeks overdue without any additional cost to the client
  • The client is now reporting from a single platform, which consolidates and automates all monthly reporting, saving tens of hours each month for the FP&A team
  • Furthermore, data integration is fully automated and secure freeing the team to drive insight rather than files
