After evaluating their options with Oracle, LHM started evaluating OneStream and became confident in the solution based on a number of positive reference calls and by attending OneStream’s Splash user conference. Though the organization only needed a financial close, consolidation and reporting solution, they chose OneStream based on 100 percent positive customer feedback, while knowing that they could easily scale the solution to address other requirements if the need ever arose.
Focusing on Financial Close, Consolidation, and Reporting
Having decided to deploy OneStream in the XF Cloud, the scope of the initial OneStream implementation for LHM was to replicate their HFM/FDM solution in OneStream. After evaluating several qualified implementation partners, LHM chose US Analytics to implement their OneStream solution based on the value US Analytics provided during the solution evaluation and selection process.
The implementation team included the corporate controller from LHM and 3 finance staff, along with 3 consultants from US Analytics. US-Analytics completed a “lift and shift” of LHM’s HFM application to OneStream. During the project, the US-Analytics team configured the LHM application with 94 entities, 33 alternative rollups, and 4 custom dimensions in OneStream. The team also built 10 new reports, recreating LHM’s analysis reports from HFM.
“US-Analytics was amazing at building our solution. They worked with our team to transfer the knowledge that was needed. If anything came up, they were on top of it. It was amazing,” said Shelly Allred, corporate controller at LHM. “Because US-Analytics was ahead of schedule and under budget, they stayed on for support, assisting with things like automating data loads and additional configuration.”
