With its roots in the Australian steel industry running back to 1915, BlueScope has built a strong history on the foundations of innovation, technology, and expertise, leading to expansion into a variety of global markets, including India, China, and North America.
Today, BlueScope is recognized as a global industry leader and the third largest manufacturer of premium branded coated and painted steel products. BlueScope maintains 100 manufacturing facilities across 17 countries, with over 16,000 employees dedicated to delivering best-in-class services and products to its customers.
Supporting this commitment requires a constant drive to identify and implement new technology. As part of this effort, BlueScope understood the opportunity to achieve increased optimization, enhanced efficiency, higher productivity levels, and improved cost effectiveness in its finance and accounting (F&A) operations. This fit with the organization’s relentless pursuit of cost savings, improving its ability to serve both its customers and communities.
