Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance is a major consumer credit actor in Europe. Embedded in the Crédit Agricole S.A group, it has on the French market a leading position on the whole of consumer credit profesions: direct selling, funding on the sales location (for example household and automobile equipement), cybercommerce, partnerships and brokerage, through a large range of products and services.
The used solution for the groupe financial management was technically outdated. Besides, Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance (CA-CF) had to absorb a new entity.
CA-CF had to acquire a sustainable tooling, enabling to manage the production reporting and forecast, the profit and loss account, the monies owed and the group management consolidation, with as main expected profits:
- Winning in ergonomics and in operating flexibility
- Having a vibrant bidirectional link to Excel
- Winning in performance and saving time in applications treatment
- Enhancing the automation of the feed chains
- Offering a decentralised entry process
- Make the CA-CF autonomous on the solution.
Nell’Armonia has led a first framing step to determine the targeted operational architecture and to define a project lot enabling a real competencies transfer to CA-CF teams.
The active participation of the CA-CF collaborators included in the project team has enabled a skills upgrading.
The following lots have been realised by CA-CF with only the Nell’Armonia ‘Expertise’ support.
- Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance is autonomous in the daily management of its applications and in the development of new reportings in Hyperion Planning.
- The solution is deployed through the web and Excel alongside the groupe management and subsidiaries.
- On the strength of its financial management success, the solution has been spreaded to risks management.
