The Challenge

A third-party shared services environment led to separate silos of data,
fragmented knowledge, and delayed decision-making. With income
generated both from government and external sources, it was essential to
have a single source of finance and HR truth.

The Solution

Finance Management, Time & Expenses and Sales orders & Procurement

The Results

One of the first organisations to lay accounts before Parliament, despite lockdown

99.6% of suppliers paid within 10 days

All corporate services in operation during Covid-19 lockdown
