We’ve been live since August of 2022 with planning and January of 2023 with consolidations.”
Ashwin, who previously consulted at Hubbell, had the opportunity to speak directly with Jerri about his experience. Specifically, he inquired about Hubbell’s transition through multiple CPM implementations versus their single OneStream implementation for planning and budgeting. Jerri’s response was insightful, stating, “We can call it an enhancement, but I mean we really, we overhauled it big time, especially on the planning side.” Jerri further added, “I was introduced to the Black Diamond Advisory folks at Splash in San Antonio, so I reached out to them because I thought their accordion rolling forecast was really cool.”
