Business Scenario

  • Preparing board package typically took days of work each month, including a substantial time just to compile the data.
  • Everything was manual, from downloading balance from SAP, reformatting it in Excel, reviewing the transactions, making adjustment and then running that process all over again until the reports were right.
  • There was a need to automate those manual steps, eliminate the need for extensive data verification and reconciliation, and enable authorized users to generate reports directly from their desktop.

Apolis Solution

  • Apolis uses an innovative approach to ensure that deliverables are robust, flexible, adaptable and have completeness of vision.
  • We did thorough evaluation of customer’s existing reports, mapping, allocations, capital expenditures, and to-be requirements and then implemented an agile data store & reporting architecture using SAP BW, BusinessObjects and HANA that effectively handled a combination of SAP and non-SAP data.
  • Financial Hierarchy is created with optimized drill-down capability by each of customer’s many lines of business.
  • We then developed Business Objects Reports that connect to data views to provide data to users in a pixel perfect templates as desired.

Value Delivered

  • Apolis solution has improved the reliability, relevancy, accuracy and timeliness of customer’s financial board package.
  • It is saving several days of effort that customer now uses for analysis instead of data checks and formatting.
  • All reports run directly from SAP and are available as soon as a reporting period is closed in the ERP.
  • Financial statements are easily exportable to Microsoft Excel including line item details.
  • The new automated process is so user-friendly that additional users can review the reports, which in turn enables customer to identify and adjust incorrect transactions more efficiently.
