HELIOS SUCCESS STORY: FURNISHING INDUSTRY
This furnishing enterprise has around 15,000 employees. The outdated paper reimbursement sheets failed to meet the demand of expense control. To thoroughly change the situation that financial policy failed to implement at the user end, this furnishing company adopted Helios as its reimbursement platform and Hand as its expense control platform, eventually improving management efficiency.
There are four main challenges for this furnishing enterprise. One of the main challenges is to deploy the Helios public cloud and the Hand private cloud of expense control and to connect the financial system with local deploy. The second challenge to overcome is the use of different reimbursement sheets for the various subsidiary companies within this furnishing enterprise. Third, there is no real-time calculation of complex expense control regulation, and the last challenge is mapping of financial account codes of multiple legal entities.
Using Helios, we provided one single reimbursement and expense control system for the whole enterprise. The reimbursement policies were unified within a single business scope. A Travel Management Company (TMC) supplier selected for the travel request feature helped to decrease travel service fees. Because of the unification of expenses and reimbursement, the satisfaction of employees increased and the workload of accountants decreased.
