'Previously, we found it difficult to find consultants who have both experience with proper driver-based financial planning, understand the ‘FP&A language’, and also have technical expertise in OneStream. Fortunately OneStream and Agium EPM pooled together to ensure we were provided with the best possible consulting resources.'

Guardian Industries needed to replace their custom Hyperion consolidation solution and their homegrown financial reporting solution that relied on IT for improvements and maintenance.
- Guardian needed a unified solution for all of their Financial Consolidation & Reporting, Budgeting, and Analysis, all owned by the office of Accounting across multiple divisions.
- Guardian also wanted to give operationally relevant management reporting to the businesses.
- They needed to deliver an Accounting-controlled and maintained forecasting solution for their automotive trim division.
“We now have one system owned by the office of Accounting that delivers powerful management and ad hoc reporting for management and business users. Significant benefits have been achieved around audit, controls, intercompany eliminations and currency translations." says Brad Sheppard, Director of IT Central Services.
