Payment-to-reconciliation automation

Project overview and objectives

A financial services company came to our team with a few challenges—some of which were made more complex with multiple business divisions. Our objective? Integrate users and data into a subsidiary’s existing Kyriba platform. Here’s what we had to solve:

  • A 100% manual process for creating cash worksheets inclusive of forecasts, fund imprest balances, record journal entries, and complete reconciliations
  • High potential for fraud from inadequate payment controls and inefficient workflows
  • Limited approval and extract functions in antiquated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems

What we did

Creating a tailored solution required a lot of collaboration across business divisions and IT. We were able to meet over 100 unique requirements, including:​

  • Robust end-to-end processes that automated cash positioning, journal entries, funding, payments, positive pay, and reconciliations
  • Successful process transformation for hundreds of subsidiaries through united configuration and testing of Kyriba, BlackLine, and ERP technologies
  • Departmental buy-in backed by biweekly working and feedback sessions that ensured user adoption​


By the time we hit go-live, this organization was well on its way to technology excellence. They saw:

  • Automated transfers of data and reporting without need for human intervention
  • Generation of weekly reports that identified and rectified unmatched itemspreventing month-end fire drills
  • Automated processes for daily journal entry posting and reconciliation
  • Creation of one location for consolidated data and clear logic to classify transactions
  • Standardized and secured payment workflows with approvals and limits
