With the mission of helping couples around the world plan every aspect of their wedding, WeddingWire and The Knot merged to form The Knot Worldwide. The combined organization offers wedding marketplaces, websites, planning tools, and registry services to over 20 million monthly visitors across the globe.
As WeddingWire and The Knot merged to form the largest global wedding planning company, they were faced with a condensed timeline to integrate two established businesses. Core business functions had to be reviewed, enhanced, and merged to develop a unified combined organization. The new revenue standard (ASC 606) also added additional compliance requirements to the project and further complicated the merger process.

How We Helped

Our primary focus during the integration project was to streamline the business processes of the combined organization, The Knot Worldwide. We engaged by leading discovery workshops with each respective accounting team to document processes and perform gap analyses. By first understanding the core functions of the business, we were able to properly leverage NetSuite ERP functionality to accommodate data flow.

 

The Advanced Revenue Management module was key in enabling the business to comply with ASC 606 revenue standards – We worked closely with TKWW revenue consultants to ensure proper revenue handling and treatment in NetSuite. Additionally, existing order integrations to NetSuite were carefully reviewed and enhanced to allow for greater flexibility and consistency.

 

Our approach and methodology was a key driver in the successful integration and migration of WeddingWire and The Knot.
