CDS Co-Operatives has recently completed the implementation of Infor SunSystems to improve its financial reporting capabilities and accelerate payments. Further improvements are expected once the SunSystems software has been fully integrated with CDS Co-operatives’ finance, asset and property management systems.
CDS Co-Operatives’ previous application lacked the necessary management accounting which led to a reliance on spreadsheets, which not only took too long but also meant that staff were used for data entry tasks rather than business analysis. There were also cumbersome paper-based invoicing processes.
CDS chose Infor SunSystems on the basis of its reporting functionality, the application’s intuitive ease of use and Infor’s commitment to an accelerated deployment timetable due to CDS Co-operatives’ impending financial audit.
Suzanne Twerdochilb, finance director, CDS Co-Operatives, said, “Moving away from our legacy application and over-reliance on spreadsheets was a major challenge. We had to identify and select a new application quickly, but when our executive team met Infor, this gave us the necessary confidence that SunSystems would be able to develop the reporting that we wanted. This confidence has increased as the project was delivered on time and within budget, and even our auditors expressed a preference for SunSystems.”
