The Jim Pattison Group Implements OneStream to Modernize and Unify Complex Financial Processes

June 27, 2023

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. The Jim Pattison Group, a diversified holding company operating primarily in the United States and Canada, has successfully implemented OneStream to modernize and unify its corporate performance management (CPM) processes, starting with financial consolidation and reporting. The Jim Pattison Group selected OneStream’s cloud-based Intelligent Finance platform to replace an on-premise IBM Cognos application and streamline the company’s complex financial processes while supporting their growth strategy.

The Jim Pattison Group is headquartered in Vancouver, BC, and has over $15B in annual sales with 20 divisions and over 49,000 employees across the company. The company drives growth through strategic acquisitions to expand their portfolio. When the company decided to move to a cloud-based CPM system, it selected OneStream as the best solution to modernize their processes on a single unified platform. The company selected OneStream for its ability to reduce their financial close process and improve their financial and management reporting capabilities at their corporate and subsidiary levels.

“OneStream is an integral partner for The Jim Pattison Group in modernizing our financial systems and streamlining financial processes,” said Stephen Kai, Vice President, Finance at The Jim Pattison Group. “OneStream allows us to reduce time spent on our financial close and reporting processes. We’re now able to automate manual processes and build trust in the data, freeing up time for team members to focus on value-add activities.”

“We are honored to partner with the Jim Pattison Group to digitally transform their financial processes across financial reporting and consolidation to drive agility and long-term growth for the company,” said Connor Flynn, Named Account Manager at OneStream. “Together we built an agile solution that serves as a single source of truth throughout the enterprise.”
