Financials to the core
For a company that makes $12bn of financing available to around 900,000 suppliers across 50 different countries, having reliable financial software in place for managing its invoices and accounts in multiple currencies is something not to be toyed with. So, the UK financial services business implemented a cloud-based solution from Netsuite in 2016 as its core financial system.
Clean data and reporting at the touch of a button
Previously, the accounting was outsourced to a company in Australia. Following successive years of growth and many wasted hours chasing information across international divisions, it made the switch to NetSuite. The finance department in the UK can now access clean, up-to-date reports at the touch of a button. It can then “slice and dice” them into “multi-dimensional, employee-based or product-group” reports that are “very easy to work with in a base currency.”
Greensill prides itself on its cutting-edge technology platforms, helping thousands of suppliers around the world collaborate and making onboarding and payment processing easier and faster than ever before. Calvert-Jones said that the company was drawn to NetSuite because of its strength as a “significant player in FinTech,” its strong pedigree and future software development plans.
Greensill chose to work with a UK partner, BrightBridge Solutions, to help manage the project, simplify processes and roll-out the software in just a few months. This involved a phased approach, testing, and various modifications to suit some chartered accountancy requirements.
