As a Finance Junior consultant, I was part of an implementation project within the team.
  • In my role as a Finance Junior Consultant, I actively contributed to a comprehensive implementation project, playing a vital role in configuring various modules such as FI-GL, AP, AR, Consolidation, FI-MM-SD Interface, House Bank Configuration, Check Payment Configuration, and Special Purpose Ledger. Additionally, I took charge of configuring Asset Management, overseeing processes related to asset acquisition, transfer, sales, retirement, and depreciation run.
  • One of my key responsibilities was leading the Data Migration and Conversion efforts. I successfully developed LSMW in SAP, ensuring seamless coordination of data mapping, upload, and cleansing. This involved orchestrating the migration from legacy systems to SAP, encompassing SAP FI-GL, AR, AP, Assets, Cost Centers (CC), and Project Systems (PS).
