Before going fully live, the finance team planned a period of intense key-user training and testing. All of the key-user training was conducted at Clarivos' Paddington Office. Training offsite fostered a great sense of team bonding and common purpose – with specially designed interactive sessions that were both practical and fun.

TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION

During their careers, both Cate Gray, GreenAcres’ new CFO and Lianne Cassidy, Group Accountant, had successfully deployed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Building on this positive experience, they met with Clarivos consultants in August 2019 to understand the specific tactical and strategic benefits of SAP Business by Design (ByD) for GreenAcres.

Our strategic vision was to create a flexible finance solution that could accommodate business growth.

Project Deliverables

  • Single group finance system
  • Financial and management reporting
  • Custom solution for sales invoice processing
  • Intercompany and fixed asset modules
  • Self-service expense management
"
We essentially walked through our whole business with Clarivos to establish what we needed from our new financial system and the roles and responsibilities for the programme. The entire finance team were involved with individuals championing delivery in specific areas. This was a highly collaborative and productive process focusing on greater efficiency and accuracy

We are very pleased with what we have achieved in such a short time frame. Our financial information is more relevant and we can respond to queries faster. Working with Clarivos, we have delivered this transformation on time and on budget, and saved 50% of an FTE’s valuable time previously spent on report running, entering trial balances and manipulating data
