“A financial reporting manager relies on the consolidation reporting tool to perform in a reliable and consistent manner to achieve timely and accurate financial outcomes within the constraint of the month-end reporting cycle. The tool needs to be flexible and easy-to-use for various users to access information for analysis purposes and provide a high-degree of integrity to demonstrate control and auditability. The OneStream system is excellent in providing this capability.”

Toll uses the OneStream cloud-based offering which simplifies Toll’s internal IT requirements and resourcing. The various business solutions available within the OneStream marketplace are accessible as and when Toll believes it is ready to deploy, based in its business priorities or level of finance maturity.
