Transforming and stabilising global finance systems

Our client, a FTSE100 multinational automotive company, transformed its finance function by streamlining and simplifying its practices and introducing more stabilisation on controls and standardising processes.

BIE appointed a Global Finance Transformation Director to oversee the transformation and set up a strategy for a single Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and shared global service.
