How an Acquisition Helped CommScope Improve Shared Services and Enhance Recoveries

Date: December 14, 2021
Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST
Speakers:

Moving to a shared services environment allowed CommScope’s finance team to have a greater focus on improving operations while realizing greater efficiencies, cost savings, and proactive measures to ensure tax compliance.

CommScope acquired Arris Communications and observed that Arris was utilizing apexanalytix for AP recovery audits. This service provided an external review of payments and outlined opportunities to prevent overpayments in the future.

As part of CommScope’s continuous improvement and standardization process, Alex Meyer, Director of Shared Services at CommScope, extended the apexanalytix audit to include CommScope entities to recapture potential overpayments similar to the recoveries that Arris experienced.
