Case Study for Keybridge Accounting

A lot of my clients come to me bearing MANY questions about the logo design process. I have clients that don’t know what they want at all, and some that come to me with very clear ideas of what they want their identity to look like. Most are somewhere in between. But regardless of where you fit into this spectrum, we can help guide you through the process and make it easier for you to decide.

Keybridge Accounting is a new client that we have, and Lyz knows exactly what she wants. Clients like Lyz are really fun to work with, and from conception to completion she played a very large role in the project. I truly believe the evolution of her logo pushed me to think outside the box and find ways to combine her ideas with my design style. The overall result is a mesh between both of our personalities.

Case Study for Raiffeisen Bank Aval

Raiffeisen Bank Aval is one of the leading banks in Ukraine. It provides a wide range of standard and innovative banking services through its nationwide network. Established in 1992 as Joint Stock Postal Pension Bank Aval, in 2005 it became part of Raiffeisen Bank International. The bank’s network is comprised of 934 branches located in large cities, provincial and community centers and villages throughout Ukraine.

The history and development of Raiffeisen Bank Aval’s data warehouse spans 12 years. In 1998, the bank’s IT team was asked to consolidate information from disparate operating systems in order to enable consolidated financial reporting. In those days, solving such problems did not require specialized software. Instead the first data warehouse at the bank was based on a traditional database, Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE). This data warehouse was later enhanced, and is still an integral part of the bank’s overall information management system. It is currently used to generate daily analytics reports for the National Bank of Ukraine and consolidated tax accounting.

Case Study for Transforming Finance and Accounting

Benchmarking studies performed by a third party indicated that the client’s F&A effectiveness and efficiency metrics were below industry standards. Moreover, regulatory initiatives exposed accounting compliance risks, and created financial pressure to standardize F&A policies and procedures in certain regions. Due to the financial and regulatory requirements, the client needed to transform its global F&A organization through system and process standardization. To assist in doing so, it implemented a standard ERP system in each geographic region, and outsourced the transaction-based activities of over 500 FTEs (full time equivalents) to a global business process outsourcing (BPO) provider.
