Scope and Challenges

athenahealth, had a problem with the legacy NetSuite ERP system could not effectively support athenahealth’s global business and transformation to a project-based organization. Approval rules related to procurement, general ledger, and their expenses were inadequate to support internal controls. Their fixed assets were tracked offline in spreadsheets. Their procurement process was inefficient and hard to track. Their expenses could not be tagged to projects.  Their chart of accounts reporting capabilities was limited.
