AIRCRAFT LEASING COMPANY GAINS SCALABILITY AND AGILITY TO MANAGE GLOBAL BUSINESS ACROSS MORE THAN 30 SUBSIDIARIES
NetSuite Co., Ltd., the Japanese subsidiary of NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that MC Aviation Partners Inc. (“MCAP”), the aircraft leasing and trading arm of Mitsubishi Corporation, has implemented NetSuite OneWorld to support its business growth. The company is now using NetSuite OneWorld to manage financials, accounting, reporting, multi-language capabilities for English and Japanese, multi-currency capabilities and financial consolidation.
Originating under the aircraft leasing team of Mitsubishi Corporation with a track record of over 15 years in the aircraft leasing business, MCAP was founded as an independent company in 2008 to assist airlines in building and maintaining an optimal fleet, primarily through aircraft leasing.
As MCAP’s global business expanded rapidly, it required a unified solution that could provide an integrated accounting system across all of its subsidiaries. Previously, the data from each separately operated and managed company’s accounting systems had to be combined, reviewed for accuracy placing a heavy burden on finance staff. In addition, MCAP and its subsidiaries (“MCAP group”) faced limitations on reporting for both the whole group and at a subsidiary level. MCAP group needed a system that could track each company’s business progress, with analysis and real-time view of the whole group enterprise using multi-faceted analytical reports.
After a thorough evaluation of various accounting system solutions, MCAP ultimately selected NetSuite OneWorld.
With support for 190 currencies, 20 languages, and automated tax compliance in over 100 countries, NetSuite OneWorld can bring MCAP group the following features and benefits:
Real-time global financial consolidation. NetSuite OneWorld gives MCAP group real-time visibility across all of its subsidiaries with unparalleled speed in consolidated accounting when compared with the prior methods, while the platform enables the books to be kept in each separate country and consolidated with a single financial system of record, while maintaining compliance with the tax system of each country where it operates.
A broad range of robust international capabilities. NetSuite OneWorld provides a highly scalable system for growth with the ability to quickly and easily add functionality as MCAP group’s business grows.
Customization capabilities. Customization and integration capabilities within the NetSuite SuiteCloud development platform help MCAP group to tailor the system to its unique business needs and easily integrate with other systems.
A scalable platform. NetSuite OneWorld’s scalable infrastructure enables the business to be flexible as it expands to support growth without significant expenses, allocating other resources such as MCAP’s own IT infrastructure.
Real-time business visibility and business intelligence. With NetSuite OneWorld, MCAP group can gain real-time insights into key business performance indicators for a unified view across the head office and subsidiaries and can gain a single version of truth.
MCAP’s CFO, Satoshi Nanbu, stated: “NetSuite OneWorld could integrate multiple accounting sources. In the past, handling the accounting for aircraft assets and loans was a heavy burden. But we were able to rapidly transform our business based on real-time information. I am confident that NetSuite OneWorld can support our growth opportunities, increase asset under management and pursue ongoing business interests such as setting up independent subsidiaries using a minimum of the company’s resources.”
