The Canadian Division of FAF called FCT was the first international entity to move onto the enterprise-wide ERP (EBS) and EPM (Hyperion Planning and Essbase). All international entities and eventually the U.S. will be migrated over to these systems. FCT needed to sunset its legacy ERP (Epicor) and EPM (Active Planner) systems.

The Challenge

Due to the complexity of executing a new ERP and EPM solution, the company chose a phased approach for Dev, Test, User Acceptance Testing (UAT) and Production implementations. FAF turned to Gibney Consulting for their expertise in EPM solutions. Gibney Consulting recommended to break the EPM components into three distinct streams:

  1. Budgeting and Forecast in Hyperion Planning
  2. Data Integration in FDMEE
  3. Reporting in Hyperion Financial Reporting and SmartView.

The Solution

Redhill Business Analytics formerly Gibney Consulting, FAF Internal Hyperion Development and the FCT FP&A team worked in partnership to deliver the successful solution.
