Our client is an international financial institution providing investment, advisory and asset-management services in less developed countries to achieve improved operational efficiency and cost savings. They partnered with us to help them leverage Oracle Cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) and project portfolio management (PPM). The adoption of standard practices in fee accounting and management systems aligned with their strategic goal of eliminating ineffective and unsupported platforms.

The Challenge

Addressing operational complexities

Managing fee accounting and management across multiple lines of business (LOBs) and numerous operational locations presented significant challenges to our client. The task was complex, given the diversity of products and services, varying fee structures and the importance of maintaining accurate financial records and regulatory compliance.

To overcome these challenges, they considered implementing a robust fee accounting and management system integrating data from all LOBs and operational locations.


The Objective

Optimizing global operations with unified fee management solution

Our client needed an end-to-end fee accounting and management solution to accommodate their diverse business processes and requirements. They required a single platform to handle the fee accounting needs of their key LOBs across 184 countries of operation. By implementing an integrated fee accounting and management system, they wanted to streamline operations, enhance accuracy and gain better control over financial data, leading to improved decision-making and overall organizational efficiency.
