Version 1 was engaged to implement Oracle NetSuite Planning and Budgeting (NSPB) levering the NSPB Framework to provide a solution for their financial statements reporting (Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cashflow) and cost allocations on Actuals. Data was seamlessly integrated from their NetSuite ERP solution with the standard NSPB adaptor. 

We executed the project leveraging our proven NSPB implementation method and pre-built assets to accelerate the project, delivering a comprehensive solution that enables streamlined and automated reporting processes. Accessible data empowers users to analyze and report on their business in near-real-time.

Client Profile
Client Since:
"Our company relied heavily on manual, excel-based reporting out of our ERP. This limited the transparency and granularity of the financial reporting which reduced insights and created latency in our close process."

Approach to Requirements, Design & Build 

Version 1 worked closely with Everise to review their reporting requirements. We guided the client through a process of identifying the key business requirements and capturing that information and logic in a new requirements template that was used as a reference point to validate the design and solution build. 

We then approached the requirements with a multi-dimensional design and tree structure of dependency tracking. Standardized naming and order of members for each dimension make future maintenance and enhancements easy. 

Custom requirements on Cost Allocations were captured accurately by each dimension, scope of source, basis of allocation, and receiver. We also built an Excel model to achieve the off-line logic for Cost Allocations to ensure the business logic was correct and converted it into Groovy-based calculation rules. 

We decided to use Groovy scripting to achieve better performance and to find the scope of potential intersections beforehand and before allocating the data. PowerShell-based batch automation was used and PowerShell framework has been built using a parametric and functions-based approach to re-use the code and ensure future scalability. 


Our approach is to train our clients early, so they understand the solution and products sufficiently to make informed decisions around their requirements, and design and be able to test the solution. We also provide training that enables the clients to administer the solution themselves and gives them the capability to make small changes or develop new forms and reports 

Testing & Go-live 

Version 1 worked with Everise to test the solutions early through showcasing and hands-on testing, demonstrating the solution and comparing it to the requirements, to ensure the solution worked as expected.  

We carefully planned the deployment, migrating all aspects of the solution and data & enabling the production integration. Post Validation Testing was done to check the solution behaved in the same way as the Test environment.

  • Complex cost allocation model for splitting the expenses from shared clients to all external clients.  
  • Need for near real-time data refreshes from ERP to EPM to allow teams to access the data across the time zones and support fast-tracked month-end close.

"With the support of the Version 1 team, we implemented a best-in-class solution with EPBCS for our financial reporting. This provided access to the financials with updates every hour and allocations run twice a day. Prior to this implementation, the extraction of financials and the allocations added an extra two days to the close process. Both issues have been effectively eliminated."
