How an Acquisition Helped CommScope Improve Shared Services and Enhance Recoveries

Tuesday, December 14, 2021 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time | Free Webinar

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 apex 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 apex audit to include CommScope entities to recapture potential overpayments similar to the recoveries that Arris experienced.

Join the webinar and hear Alex talk about:

  • Post-acquisition: merging two large finance organizations
  • Utilizing audit service results to close control gaps and standardize processes
  • Leverage contingency-based work to improve financial results
  • Best reasons to perform a sales and use tax audit
