The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies (LHM) has replaced multiple legacy finance systems with a single Cloud platform from OneStream Software. OneStream XF Cloud has accelerated the close cycle for LHM while removing bottlenecks previously faced during financial consolidation and reporting.
A privately-owned business with automotive, sports, entertainment, finance, insurance and real estate operations across 46 states, LHM was using Oracle Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Oracle Financial Data Quality Management (FDM) for the financial close, consolidation and reporting process. Facing an expensive upgrade of its legacy applications, LHM explored more flexible cloud solutions when Oracle ended full support for the version LHM was running. The company selected OneStream based on its strong customer support and references, as well as its ability to scale and meet future business needs.
“OneStream is easy to use, our consolidation process is faster and the customer support is outstanding,” said Shelly Allred, corporate controller for Larry H. Miller Dealerships. “There are many areas I can see that are going to be faster for us. I think OneStream was the right choice over continuing with our Hyperion solution.”
US Analytics was the implementation partner, configuring the LHM finance solution for 94 entities with 33 alternative rollups and four custom dimensions in OneStream. The deployment was ahead of schedule and under budget, leading to rapid time-to-value business benefits.
OneStream XF Cloud has delivered noticeable speed improvements, especially in adding new accounts as well as in ‘refreshing’ the system after entering data. Allred noted that OneStream provides a ‘clean’ and user-friendly solution for LHM. The ability to extend the solution for budgeting and planning in the future was a determining factor in selecting OneStream.
