AstraZeneca, Business Process Partner Genpact and Trintech Recognized for Transforming Reconciliation Process

Trintech, a leading global provider of integrated software solutions for the Last Mile of Finance™, announced today that its customer AstraZeneca received an Alsbridge Innovation Award for its balance sheet reconciliation transformation project. In collaboration with AstraZeneca and Genpact, the company’s business process outsourcing partner, Trintech implemented its Certification solution to manage reconciliations of AstraZeneca’s multibillion-dollar balance sheet. The Alsbridge Innovation Awards honors innovative practices of an outsourcing relationship and acknowledge the technology and techniques that enable successful initiatives.

“This award recognizes the tremendous teamwork and collaboration on the part of AstraZeneca, Genpact and Trintech to transform our balance sheet reconciliation process around the world,” said Natalie Childs, Global Process Owner of Record to Report and Fixed Assets at AstraZeneca. “We didn’t want to move the needle a little bit, we wanted to do much more than that – we wanted to innovate and create a world-class reconciliation platform. And we did just that: the team delivered the project on time and under budget, and more importantly, improved the day-to-day operations of our finance organization.”

Through the project, AstraZeneca, Genpact and Trintech designed, configured and implemented a new global approach to balance sheet reconciliation that delivered measurable results:

  • Improved productivity for 300 users
  • Increased compliance across 26,000 accounts
  • Improved balance sheet integrity
  • Eliminated Excel, paper and human intervention in reconciliation process
  • Reduced cost of service
  • Accelerated the period-close process

“The improvement in AstraZeneca’s finance processes underscores the benefits of effective collaboration between global companies, business process outsourcing providers and technology companies,” said Roy Rajarshi, who led the project for Genpact.

Trintech CEO Paul Byrne commented on the award, “It has been an honor to work alongside AstraZeneca and Genpact on this global initiative. We are most proud of our work at Trintech when our customers are recognized for the advancements they make with the help of Trintech’s technology.”

Certification is a module of Trintech’s Cadency solution, which automates the Last Mile of Finance to increase efficiency, improve visibility, shorten cycle times, lower costs and reduce risk. This SaaS-based tool serves as a global policy and platform that monitors activity on every account and automatically assigns risk and approvals. The workflow systematically guides monthly compliance tasks, and it acts as a single system of record accessible from anywhere to enable real-time analysis and collaboration.

“In an era when business process outsourcers play a growing role in international finance, this project demonstrates that automation and real-time access are increasingly important to the collaboration and success of global finance teams,” Byrne added.
