Flexible reporting improves efficiency for DEM Solutions

Case Study: Infor SunSystems

When Gordon Grant joined DEM Solutions as Finance Director, an early impression was that the existing accounting package did not meet the requirements that he felt were necessary for a business of their size.

It was not long before he instigated a review of the company’s systems and as a result opted to replace the existing Sage software Infor’s FMS SunSystems version 5 and the Vision (Q&A 10) reporting suite.

“I was looking for much greater level of flexibility from the systems in terms of reporting. Having used SunSystems in the past, I was aware of the functionality on offer and felt that we needed a more effective solution than existed. By using SunSystems and Vision we are able to retrieve information and drill down into data to whatever level is necessary.

“I had dealt with Castle in the past and had complete trust in their knowledge and expertise to implement the system for us. Their PQIS approach to the project ensured that the installation was hassle free and didn’t interfere with normal day to day business. From previous experience I also had confidence in Castle’s support and training services.

“Now that we have installed the SunSystems solution with Vision, we have the flexibility to run detailed ad hoc reports which will save a great deal of labour intensive administration, delivering significant efficiencies.  The flexibility of the system means that we can make best use of resources and expedite efficient decision making across the organisation.”

SunSystems has the ability, from a single ledger entry, to analyse each transaction though multiple dimensions, catering for the most complex of financial management requirements.  The solution delivers unsurpassed functionality, flexibility and data integrity in its reporting output.
