R Group had a complex holding structure with multiple branches organized as separate legal entities in charge of different business processes, which complicated document and multi-currency financial flows between them as well as between the holding company and its counteragents.
We were to automate the processes of planning and executing the budgets of these branches and the consolidated budget of the holding company as well as to provide the management board with extensive and meaningful analytics.
The solution was developed on the base of IBM Domino (Lotus Domino) and IBM Notes (Lotus Notes) to meet stringent security and synchronization requirements for geographically distributed information.
We established a development process that allowed us to add new functionality directly to the implemented system with no damage to data. One of the main challenges we faced was having no access to the production system with all its data due to security reasons. So we had to develop a special module for remote debugging that ensured no private data would be transferred to us.
