LC Europe, a member of Consyst Business Group, has completed a pilot project to create a unified accounting system based on Microsoft Dynamics AX in Kaspersky Lab offices in France and Italy. The project became the basis for further system replication in other offices of the world leader of information security.

The company has numerous rewards in the field of protecting technologies; it is in the top4 global developers of security software solutions. More than 400 million users and 270 thousand corporate clients — from small businesses to state corporations — are protected by Kaspersky Lab technologies.
The project of Microsoft Dynamics AX implementation in the offices of Kaspersky Lab in France and Italy is a part of the global program of the unified centralized financial management system development in Kaspersky Lab offices around the world. The program provides for the transferring of financial management processes of international offices to Microsoft Dynamics AX and replacement of decentralized local accounting systems in each country of the company operation.
The functionality of the new system was supposed to cover areas of financial, tax and management accounting. The single entry point was required to access financial information not only for the specialists in the headquarters in Moscow, but also for financial controllers throughout the world.
For the contractor of the project was chosen Consyst Business Group, providing services for the implementation and support of information management systems in the Russian and foreign markets. Kaspersky Lab offices in France and Italy were selected to launch the program and pilot implementation. The project was carried out in two stages, each of which involved several stages, from system design to stabilization.
The project implemented a management chart of accounts and a single set of managerial analytics covering a wide range of business functions, as the following: accounts payable and integration with corporate procurement management system, accounts receivable and integration with а corporate sales management system, fixed assets, the general ledger and other parts of the accounting processes. It was important that the project included local specifics of accounting and tax legislation.
Georgy Masberg, deputy general director of Consyst Business Group: “Successful implementation of the pilot project gave impacts to the system implementation in other European offices, in Germany and the UK, and the creation of a corporate template for its further rollout in the branches of Kaspersky Lab around the world. A complete move from decentralized inherited local accounting systems to a single system based on a modern Microsoft Dynamics AX solution will allow accumulate financial and accounting information across all of the company’s foreign offices.”
