Between May and July of 2019, Ernst & Young sought out Highstreet to perform the Accounting Hub implementation work for Lyft. This opportunity began the largest implementation of Oracle Accounting Hub Cloud Service ever done. For Lyft’s US and Canadian operations, not only was this project the largest of its kind ever, but in addition it needed to be finished in a record-breaking five months—which would be four months sooner than Oracle’s most optimistic estimate of nine months. The project was to develop and implement the accounting rules necessary to create detailed subledger journal entries for all of Lyft’s primary business activities in the US and Canada as well as various operation reports.
Amidst the challenging and ever-changing global pandemic, some of Highstreet’s Oracle Cloud clients joined Oracle in a panel to discuss how Higher Education institutions innovate through COVID-19 budget cuts. If you missed the live webinar, you can listen to the recording and hear more from the panel’s speakers. These four Higher Education thought leaders; Spring Arbor University’s CIO Randall Melton, the University of Kansas’ CFO Diane Goddard, and Skidmore College’s CTO Dwane Sterling; come together and talk about how they’re innovating through these changing times.
American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUA) made a decision to bring their financial aid processing in-house, providing efficiencies and cost savings to them in these turbulent times. That decision required an immediate solution; a solution that couldn’t be put off for an additional financial aid processing cycle. Moving from a third-party provider of financial aid services to internal resources was a big lift for the institution and required both a solid software solution and an implementation partner with very strong expertise to support able in-house financial aid personnel.
