Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX), a global manufacturer of lifting and material processing products for industrial purposes, has replaced multiple legacy finance systems with a single cloud platform from OneStream Software. Consolidating core financial processes onto the OneStream XF Cloud platform has helped Terex improve efficiency while cutting costs.
“Overall the OneStream platform has provided cost-saving opportunities throughout the organization. Terex replaced multiple systems with a single, unified solution that handles consolidations, reporting, budgeting and planning and can be extended to address additional needs going forward,” said Jon Paterson, vice president, financial planning and analysis for Terex.
Facing costly upgrades of legacy systems and seeking to streamline a fragmented-systems approach to budgeting and planning, Terex saw an opportunity to start fresh with a single solution for actuals reporting and planning that provided enough detail to accommodate both processes in a single system. OneStream FX Cloud has provided Terex with that single, unified platform.
OneStream XF Cloud has fully replaced legacy systems for financial consolidation, close, reporting, budgeting and planning. Terex has been able to automate many manual processes as a result and eliminate painful data administration being performed by the Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) team while also providing a solution for line-of-business planning.
“Corporate finance processes are highly connected, yet many organizations have disparate systems and point solutions that don’t intuitively work well together. This approach is inefficient and can introduce unnecessary risk. Terex Corporation shows how moving to a unified platform drives new efficiencies, cuts costs and puts a renewed focus on planning and analysis to ultimately make faster, better business decisions,” said Craig Colby, chief revenue officer for OneStream Software.
Streamlining Financial Consolidation and Reporting
Moving to the OneStream FX Cloud platform greatly reduced complexity and simplified financial consolidation and reporting. With OneStream, Terex was able to greatly reduce reporting entities, with 97 percent now loading straight from its 28 enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. Full system consolidation has been cut from about 2.5 working days to 30 minutes or less. This is giving Terex more time to focus on strategic finance activities, such as FP&A.
“By eliminating manual efforts and leveraging OneStream’s automation, the new system has streamlined the financial close, budgeting and forecasting processes and improved data quality and availability as a result,” continued Paterson.
