AXA - SystemsAccountants


Standardising finance process through an SAP Finance implementation team

AXA is ranked as the 16th largest company in the world with global sales of over $165bn.

The challenge:

AXA instigated an SAP Finance implementation as an enabler to standardise finance processes across their UK / Ireland business units. The transformation incorporated the creation of an offshore finance shared service centre in Pune, India.

The solution:

SystemsAccountants was invited to tender against a number of systems integrators and consultancies and were eventually selected to provide a team of 35 SAP functional, integration, business process owner, training, testing, and data migration consultants to deliver the build and deployment phases of the SAP transformation.

Separately we were retained as a resource partner to a major portfolio of finance change – a team of change consultants and project managers were provided to deliver projects around regulatory compliance, activity-based management, offshore transition management, group reporting, a pan European SAP GL implementation, data warehousing and capital optimisation (Longevity Reinsurance & Part VII’s).

The outcome:

Over a four-year period, we provided over 100 contractors and permanent staff to AXA globally.
