Transformation business technology following a global merger

Dentsu Aegis offers a full range of branding, consulting, marketing, media planning, and public relations services, and was formed in March 2013 when Dentsu acquired UK-based Aegis Group plc in a deal worth nearly $5 billion. Dentsu Aegis Network and its brand businesses, consisting of Carat, Dentsu, Dentsu media, iProspect, Isobar, mcgarrybowen. Posterscope and Vizeum make the best use of today’s media mix to bring to life the right communication strategy and deliver the best results for their clients. Dentsu Aegis has revenues of over £1bn, operates in over 100 countries, and employs 23,000 people.

The challenge:

Post-merger, the business initiated a global ERP-enabled Finance Transformation Programme, involving the creation of global F&A shared services underpinned by an ERP deployment (the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics AX into over 70 countries).

The solution:

SystemsAccountants were engaged to appoint a Global Programme Assurance Manager, P2P and O2C process owners, a Dynamics AX Functional Consultant as well as Report Writers and a Dynamics AX Systems Accountant.
