FISCAL expand into Edinburgh and establish Local Authority AP forum

Reading, UK –20th September 2011: FISCAL Technologies'world-class accounts payable audit software, has officially opened its new office in Edinburgh to serve the Scottish AP community more effectively. FISCAL has been active in many organisations across Scotland, and the new office opening is a culmination of several years spent developing a presence and establishing a reputation for developing best-in-class AP solutions.

David Griffiths, FISCAL’s Director of Customer Development said “FISCAL’s customer base in this region has grown considerably in the past 3 years, so it was only right that we expand to be at the heart of the community we are serving. With our reputation for providing cost saving solutions which prevent errors and protect against fraud, FISCAL has been welcomed into the Scottish AP arena. In addition, Scotland has a rich and diverse economy and we are actively supporting businesses and public sector.”

To that end, FISCAL responded to a need from within the accounts payable community by helping to facilitate and establish the Scottish Local Authority Accounts Payable Forum. With the help of Garry Stevens of Aberdeen City Council as Chair, the group met for the second time on 8th September 2011. FISCAL is pleased to report that the forum attracted over 40 attendees from 24 Local Authorities from across Scotland. This is the largest forum of its kind.

With its blend of open debate and practical advice and sessions from keynote speakers, this event discusses the benefits of new technologies from a variety of providers and sets down an agenda to discuss the hot topics affecting Scottish AP departments today – from fraud, to payment cards and tax, to implementing automated workflow.

Lynn Anderson, Finance Advisor for South Lanarkshire Council said, “I’m really pleased to have been a part of this useful event and look forward to implementing some of the suggestions to improve processes. I was particularly impressed by the relevance and depth of knowledge shared by the group as a whole.”

As Bruce Hibbert, Regional Development Manager for Scotland says, “Scotland has a vibrant business community and FISCAL are proud to be a part of that, and we look forward to doing all we can to assist in the adoption of new best practice methods within organisations’ AP departments.”
