Wrekin Housing has embarked on a widescale digital transformation programme, starting with the adoption of Advanced’s Cloud Financials software.
As a real-time, cloud-based solution, the housing provider’s new budgeting and forecasting system is based on live information; all changes to data are immediate and reporting processes that previously took days can be completed within hours. Wrekin Housing is also introducing a new purchasing system which will highlight cost savings and automatically recalculate budgets against spending.
The housing provider said that Cloud Financials from Advanced will enable greater agility and make things much simpler for its staff. They will need to spend less time on reporting and have greater access to accurate, real-time information for better planning.
Jon Lamb, executive director of finance, Wrekin Housing, said, “Most of our finance team are currently working from home and, as the past year has demonstrated, the ability to maintain secure and effective working practices remotely has been critical. Implementing Advanced’s Cloud Financials will allow staff to work effectively wherever they are, using the same real-time data.”
