Chicago, IL – [April 29, 2021] – Echelon Solutions Group announced recently that a leading provider of education technology, services, and physical and digital content, has successfully implemented the SAP.® Record to Report (FICO (finance and controlling)) processes of General Ledger Accounting and Fixed Asset Accounting in SAP ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) as part of a 3-phase digital transformation. In 2019, the company sought to streamline its finance and procurement business processes and brought on Echelon to support four of their business units. This engagement extends to 25 legal entities and 200 stores across the globe, from the U.S. and Canada to the U.K., Ireland, U.A.E. and Australia. 

Wave 1 went live on February 1, 2021. The next phases are in progress now and scheduled to be completed by Q3/Q4 2021 and several additional solutions being facilitated by Echelon:   

  • SAP’s Concur travel management system has just been implemented to handle all travel functions and expense reporting across the organization.
  • SAP Ariba to handle all procurement functions across the organization. Currently, procurement is distributed across business units and individual stores. Ariba will provide a centralized view of all procurement activity and a single source of procurement data. 
  • SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) will become the analytics and reporting system for the company’s financial information in the short term and eventually for all data and analytics.
