David O'Neill

A successful project implementation, delivered on promises and created a positive user experience.

2017-10-27

All actions are now taken electronically and there is no paper in sight.

Pros

The system is very easy to navigate from a user perspective so the training and implementation process can be supported with basic demos and QRGs.

Cons

As a system administrator the softwares configurability encourages core users to suggest change requests quite often. Not a fault of the system but a challenge for the administrators.

Bill Power

SoftCo implementation team always delivers and the product (especially the new version) is excellent

2017-10-23

Moved from paper based to online PO's with significant reduction in staff levels in purchase ledger and almost 100% compliance with payment terms.

Pros

We use verify (as an option in addition to approve) to ensure that costs coded to particular account codes are reviewed as appropriate to that code before the PO is approved, e.g., Capex.

Cons

Not cheap, we are a waste management business not a bank, but we have found it good value for money.
