Business Challenges

As United Green is spread across the globe at various locations, capturing multi-currency transactions was a big challenge. The other challenges faced by the company were:

  • To follow the legal and ownership relation in Line of Business (LOB) Entities
  • To prepare consolidated report in different ways for different purposes as per Management requirement.
  • Monitoring and maintaining inter company in proper manner
  • Having reports in different currencies as based currencies are different in LOBs
  • To allocate the finance sources and charge related expenses to different entities
