F-One assists Ningbo Huaxiang Electronic with management upgrade
Previously, it took a few days for the financial staff to solve budget issues of a subsidiary. Now, the budgeting and financial analysis platform provided by F-One is one-stop and automated, making data processing simple and visualized.
With the expansion of scale, Ningbo Huaxiang Electronic Co., Ltd has established a series of internal systems. The branch company or subsidiary even deployed multiple systems such as SAP and UFIDA, which seemed to meet the enterprise demand in the short term but in fact made the internal IT environment more complicated. Integrated finance planning was thus time and labor consuming: Employees had to make numerous phone calls, send e-mails, and wait for the IT department to provide the original data. Often, it took the finance department one to two days to solve the problems of one subsidiary.
The data format, contents, and indicator names of different subsidiaries and departments are often not uniform.
The data collaboration method of Excel + Email is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and error-prone. It may result in version confusion, data dispersion, and low information traceability.
Without reliable permission control, Excel can be modified at will and the modifications cannot be tracked.
The budget cycle is shortened. Previously, it took two days for each subsidiary to process the data. Now, the data processing is automated.
The reliable rolling budget method is provided, the sales and the production department communicate smoothly, and timely adjustment of production is made in line with changes in market demand.
The management has an “overview” of the corporate performance, avoiding secondary guesswork and generating a sense of trust in numbers.
