Volleyball England to ace financial reporting and improve efficiency with cloud-managed GP Essentials on Demand from m-hance

Volleyball England, the governing body for the sport of volleyball in England, has selected a hosted finance system with extended eProcurement modules from leading Microsoft Dynamics Partner m-hance.

This new cloud based solution, Microsoft Dynamics GP Essentials on Demand, is fully managed and offers extended Requisition and Expenses Management functionality. Replacing Volleyball England’s current on-premises system from Sage, m-hance will enable the organisation’s finance team to save up to two working days each month by streamlining its financial reporting processes and procedures.

Volleyball England, funded by Sports England, required an affordable, easy to use financial management system. With a total of 32 staff, their goal was to improve efficiency, provide more timely and accurate financial information for reporting purposes and most critically, enable the organisation’s finance team to focus on more valuable financial management duties.

Martin Lindsey, Business Director of Volleyball England comments, “Previously, our finance team spent an unnecessary amount of time processing information manually. m-hance’s system will help us save up to two working days by automating a range of manually-intensive reporting procedures, and allow greater visibility by tracking live information on a regular basis. This will enable us to leverage cost saving opportunities to make informed financial decisions and maximise funding from Sport England.”

Dynamics GP’s user-friendly reporting functionality ensures the finance team can produce timely reports, quickly and accurately. Coupled with a flexible and secure web-based platform, implemented and managed by m-hance, the Essentials solution reduces the organisation’s operating costs, allowing them to focus their resources on the growth and excellence of all disciplines of Volleyball in England.

The additional Requisitions and Expenses Management features, based on m-hance’s Purchase Management Platform, will deliver web-based workflow and approval functionality, replacing Volleyball England’s current inefficient paper based procedures. Not only will this streamline the approval process, this will also offer the finance team greater visibility of costs and increased financial control.

Lindsey continues, "We chose GP Essentials as it provided core functionality at an affordable price. m-hance stood out for us because they offered a quick implementation and an inclusive package for maintenance and support, which for us meant we could concentrate on our organisation’s aims which include increasing participation in the sport, while evading any unnecessary concerns of additional on premise risks and costs."
