CHG Healthcare: Winning at Budgeting and Forecasting
As a rapidly growing organization, CHG had outgrown their Excel and email-based budgeting process. The FP&A team found themselves managing 90+ separate versions of their master OPEX budgeting template for each budget owner. So the Finance organization at CHG Healthcare decided to implement a new, more advanced budgeting and forecasting process with OneStream in a short timeframe. As a result, the FP&A team has simplified the process of monthly projections into a repeatable process, that relies on less manual work and provides more time for value-added analysis. The team has also gained the ability to forecast at the same level of detail as the budget and have increased the accuracy and confidence in the numbers with more precise calculations. Learn how CHG Healthcare replaced their Excel-based budgeting process with OneStream’s unified platform for planning, financial close and reporting in this webinar replay!
How Arch Capital Tackled Lease Accounting
When the new IFRS 16/ASC 842Lease Accounting standards went into effect in 2019, Arch Capital was required to recognize 60+ leases on the balance sheet to report the associated liability for payments. Luckily, Arch Capital was using OneStream Software which offered them the ability to easily implement a Lease Accounting solution from a OneStream MarketPlace partner. With leases in foreign currencies automatically translated into USD, Arch Capital now has system-generated reports for complex calculations with automated journal generation supporting both IFRS 16 and ASC 842 calculations. Watch this webinar replay to learn how OneStream gave Arch Capital a non-disruptive way to expand financial processes and deliver more value across the enterprise.
Making the Leap from Excel to OneStream at INW Manufacturing
INW Manufacturing had grown extensively due to acquisitions and organic growth and needed a professional financial consolidation and reporting system to replace their outdated Excel processes. INW was challenged by the complexities of managing intercompany activity in spreadsheets. With their Excel®-based process, INW was taking eight to 10 days to close the books. In their first month of using OneStream, they closed in seven days. And by their third close with OneStream, INW was completing the process in less than five days. On the planning side, preparing budgets manually via Excel would take two weeks and now with OneStream it’s done in two hours. Learn how INW Manufacturing is now managing balance sheet, cash flow, and capital expenditure data by division and all in the system to create accurate and consistent reporting.
How Hyperion Insurance Replaced Anaplan with OneStream for Financial Consolidation, Reporting and Planning
For five years, Hyperion Insurance Group had been using Anaplan for financial consolidation, group and divisional reporting, budgeting and forecasting.

These challenges drove the group to replace Anaplan with the OneStream platform. With OneStream, users have a controlled environment that allows them to use Extensible Dimensionality® to get down into the detail they need for their reporting. And with a direct connect between the Unit4 ERP and OneStream, Hyperion Insurance can do more interesting types of reporting with employee detail, project codes and local reporting codes. Watch the webinar to learn how Hyperion Insurance Group achieved transparency, control, and governance across 40 countries and 4 international business units.
EFG Bank Transforms their Budgeting & Planning Process to Gain Agility, Insights and Efficiency

OneStream’s unified CPM platform would help EFG modernize its planning process and replace Excel. EFG’s key objectives were to enable the application of detailed business drivers to derive the budget at the business-unit level while also ensuring proper controls to drive accountability. OneStream enables EFG to quickly scan across all critical planning processes to monitor progress on outstanding tasks and collaborate with local units to drive business performance.

How West Bend Mutual Insurance Transformed Financial Close and Reporting
Relying on Excel to support critical finance processes led to errors and time-consuming data collection and consolidation for West Bend Mutual Insurance (WBMI). Operations managers had limited visibility into financial results by profit center, product and state. Based on a recommendation from a Gartner analyst, WBMI evaluated OneStream to support all their critical finance processes in a single, cloud-based application. OneStream provided WBMI a cleaner presentation of financial results with stable, consistent allocations, and automated cash flow reporting. By directly connecting to the GL/ERP the finance team saved 2 days per month on data integration and have since extended their OneStream application to support people planning and capital planning. By moving the allocation process to OneStream, WBMI now has a finance-owned process that completes in 30 minutes, with clear insight into pre- and post-allocated data, and full audit trails.
