MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO – Prophix Software, a global leader in Corporate Performance Management (CPM) software, announced today that DRB-HICOM, one of Malaysia’s largest and most diverse conglomerates, will implement Prophix for global financial consolidation and reporting. Prophix’s consolidation solution will enable DRB-HICOM to provide a single and trusted view of financial data more quickly for the company and its more than 80 global subsidiaries, representing 46,000 employees worldwide.

“Financial consolidation and close for multinational organizations like DRB-HICOM is a significantly time-intensive process,” said Alok Ajmera, President and CEO of Prophix Software. “By automating its consolidation and reporting through Prophix, they will benefit from enhanced agility and accuracy, with better-connected finance teams serving the company’s multiple vertical markets and varied business operations around the world. We’re honored DRB-HICOM has entrusted us with this key part of its financial planning, reporting, analysis and consolidation process.”

DRB-HICOM selected the Prophix solution to realize the following benefits:

Reduced processing delays: Easy, web-based data entry with real-time validation improves the integrity of DRB-HICOM’s data and prevents processing delays that can result from human error.

Eliminated redundancies: Fast, delay-free online submission functionality allows subsidiary companies to submit data directly from working files or spreadsheets, eliminating the need to rekey monthly, quarterly and yearly reporting.

Improved accuracy and speed in reporting: DRB-HICOM can leverage Prophix’s automation capabilities to calculate non-controlling interest, translate financial results of foreign entities in multiple currencies, calculate results-sharing from associates or joint ventures and more. By avoiding complicated manual calculations in spreadsheets, this automation helps to avoid errors and increase speed in their global financial reporting.
