A multi-location UK Construction business was acquired by an Australian-based multi-national. The brief was to integrate the UK businesses into the IT network and ERP system used by the rest of the Group.
- There was a heavy reliance on inconsistent spreadsheet systems throughout the UK organisation. Significant analysis of all the spreadsheet systems was required, with an aim to consolidating the requirements into systems-based processes.
- The legacy ERP system was only financially updated at Month End and Year End. This meant that extensive collation of current data was required, both operational and financial.
- The current ERP was not capable of dealing with the business-specific requirements as well as the UK legislative needs. We worked with the ERP vendor to modify the Group ERP system to comply.
- End user processes were mapped as Current State and then significantly changed to a Future State that focused on continual system input, as well as the constraints of being part of a multi-national listed entity.
- UK-specific Payroll software had to be implemented, as well as integrated to the Group ERP
- The end user process was successfully changed, providing the business with the benefit of having “real time” data.
- The ERP was successfully modified to include UK legislative restrictions, ensuring that the business made it through their first month end with system-generated data that could be sent to HMRC.
- The local Payroll solution integrated successfully with new ERP without any “first pay” issues
- 80% of the Excel systems were translated back to an ERP process on the first pass of the software cutover
