Client Challenge:

One of the largest communication technology companies in the world had a challenge within their heavily customized version of PeopleSoft resulting in a breakdown of the application not properly performing accounting treatment on transactions and asset depreciation.

Identified Resource

The consultant provided by Extrinsic had over 15 years of specific experience in PeopleSoft as both a Project Team and Functional Lead. His experience ranged from implementations to upgrades and support of FIN and SCM. This resource worked as a functional SME for Financials and Supply Chain modules and was very capable of performing analysis, business process re-engineering, data modeling, and testing. Just as important as his technical knowledge, he was adept at collaborating with the business users and bridging the gap between the functional and technical aspects of environments.

Consultant Action & Solutions

Extrinsic’s consultant evaluated the problem and worked with the client’s existing team on a solution. He tested in a sandbox environment, validated and implemented changes before migrating to production. He provided a thorough knowledge transfer post-implementation.

The results of these efforts increased the accuracy of property taxes throughout the organization, saving the company thousands of dollars per year and the ability to avoid legal infringements.
