Our History

Pioneering a Vision of Synergised Financial Excellence, rooted in collaborative strengths and services.

Origins and Evolution

The Financial Empowerment Journey

Inspired by industry trends and the success of competitors who had already embraced shared services, the Hirdaramani Group saw the potential benefits of centralising financial functions. This included cost savings, improved operational efficiency, and better resource allocation. As a result, H-Connect was established as a collaborative effort between the finance teams of each business unit and the shared services team.

As an integral part of the group, our establishment in 2012 aligned with the Group's expansion and diversification efforts. From our humble beginnings with just eight employees, our team has experienced exponential growth to currently comprise more than 140 highly skilled individuals, with the primary goal of empowering finance teams to focus on value-added activities such as forecasting, analysis, and financial planning.

With a strong emphasis on end-to-end financial processes, we have firmly established ourselves as the financial powerhouse of the Hirdaramani Group, playing a critical role in centralising and overseeing all financial operations across various sectors of the group.

Leveraging the rich 125-year legacy of the Hirdaramani group, a billion-dollar conglomerate, H-Connect stands as a dynamic process hub, serving as a premier Shared Services Solutions provider in Sri Lanka.

We are geared towards fostering a collaborative atmosphere, promoting the integration of finance with shared services. This collaboration emphasises collective strength rather than internal competition, optimising resource allocation and empowering finance professionals to contribute their expertise to strategic initiatives that propel business growth.
