"Rusatomservice" developed and implemented a budget management system. The project was aimed at budget consolidation of the customer's enterprise and its subsidiaries, the formation of financial statements on a tight schedule, and in full accordance with the parent company's specific industry requirements.

Before project launch
The company's existing budgeting system had to be optimized and automated due to the following factors:
