Thanks to our African expertise already proven by our past professional experience, PATH FINANCE led its first major project for TOTAL in 2001, deploying the XRT line in 40 countries over 8 months.
This experience was the opportunity to discover new African countries, meet their main banking players, and start the bank statement standardisation process which has now become our specificity – MULTIPATH.
These contacts enhanced and refined our methodology: when you have 40 countries, there are 40 subsidiaries, as many audits, as many teams and internal organisations, and as many banking practices.
Beginning in 2004, this experience was followed by the development of CFAO: over a period of 4 years, PATH FINANCE criss-crossed French and English-speaking Africa again, covering 35 countries and 120 group subsidiaries. It was possible to confirm the standardised work method we had already used for the TOTAL project to the banks, and explain it to the new banks.
Meeting the teams in each subsidiary was an opportunity to examine different cases, thereby consolidating our already rich field experience.
And then came Orange Ivory Coast, Optorg/Tractafric, Tarkett, Eneo, Necotrans, Ponticelli, Rougier, Vinci, Castel Groupe…
PATH FINANCE had become 100% international.
