Nolan Business Solutions provides Surrey County Cricket Club with accounting software support and consultancy services.
Division two cricket team, Surrey County Cricket Club, has implemented a new role and user based requisition system from Nolan Business Solutions, which enables the cricket club to restrict account codes and have tighter control on spend. The eRequest software from Nolan provides Surrey County Cricket Club with an intuitive, easy-to-use Internet-based requisition system which is also fully integrated with its Microsoft Dynamics GP accounting software. This enables the cricket club to set up groups based on roles, allowing certain users to raise requests which are then automatically submitted into Microsoft Dynamics GP for finance staff to authorise.
Andrew Lane, Finance Director at Surrey County Cricket Club comments, “The implementation of eRequest from Nolan Business Solutions enables us to replace the existing manual PO request process with a web-based, automated system that provides user-defined access and multi-level authorisation. This new system enables staff to email POs direct from eRequest, whilst also enabling our finance team to keep a tighter control over costs as there is a budget summary window which shows actual, budget and variance by project.” Lane continues, “Nolan have also integrated the expenses system with our Microsoft Dynamics GP accounting software which removes the need to re-key data between systems, freeing up finance staff to focus on business-critical tasks. Nolan has also linked eRequest to the Purchase Invoice Approvals and Accruals software which we are using, so that once a purchase invoice has been matched to an eRequest PO in Dynamics, the invoice appears in eRequest.” Commenting on the support and consultancy services provided by Nolan, Lane says, “We have a long-standing working relationship with Nolan and have always found them to be very knowledgeable, reliable and efficient. They have a great understanding of our business and a very thorough knowledge of accounting and IT which means that we have come to rely on them as an extension of our own internal resources.” Mike Risley, Commercial Director of Nolan Business Solutions, says, “Customer service has always been a business priority for Nolan. We always strive to provide the very best levels of support in order to help our customers realise the full potential of their accounting systems. With a long standing client such as Surrey County Cricket Club we are constantly looking to suggest new ways for them to improve their finance practices. The implementation of eRequest provides some tangible benefits to the organisation as it enables management processes to be more automated. It is now quick and easy for staff to request PO’s electronically, and finance staff can then approve without needing to re-key data, which ensures a very fast return on investment.”
