Impact Development Training Group, Service

Hansa Financials provides Impact Development Training Group with alternative to PC-based financial management Many organisations working within an Apple Mac environment still believe that their finance departments must be run on PC-based software. There is still a lack of awareness surrounding the options that are available for accounting and finance staff using Apple Mac networks. However, the Head Office of international people development firm, Impact Development Training Group, has been able to turn to Hansa Financials for assistance with this fundamental problem in order to standardise all of its business activities on the Mac platform.

Impact Development Training Group, who design and deliver development programmes for some of the worldÕs leading organisations, has invested in the region of £10,000 with systems reseller Mac Accessory Centre to implement and support Hansa Financials - a suite of fully integrated financials, job costing and business management software from Hansa Business Solutions. Operating on an Apple Mac platform, the software will provide a flexible, scaleable financial management infrastructure that will support the organisationÕs continued expansion.

Caroline Airey, Finance Manager at Impact comments, "As there were so few financial solutions available on the Mac platform, we did consider installing PC systems to make our selection process easier, though such a change posed huge cost implications. However, Hansa presented us with the only viable alternative that complied with our preference to continue operating on a Mac network, at an extremely competitive price."

Airey continues, "Hansa was one of the few vendors on the market that could offer a fully integrated product that managed job costing, invoicing and payment procedures, all within a Mac environment. It will enable us to move away from paper-based tasks and manual processes and will improve the accuracy and timeliness of the information we produce"

The job costing functionality within Hansa Financials will be employed by Impact to provide detailed recordings of expenses and additional costs relating to particular jobs. This will enable comprehensive reporting facilities and improve overall project management.

Additionally, the flexibility of the Hansa software supports ImpactÕs two-fold invoicing process. Clients are billed for training fees in advance and then billed separately, after the training programme, for any additional costs that are incurred. Impact processes around 300 purchase invoices and 100 sales invoices each month.

Airey says, "Due to the nature of our invoicing procedures, and the continued growth of our business, we found it increasingly difficult to track the additional expenses for each training course. Much of this information was stored manually and the volume of data became too great to manage. Now we have easily identifiable pre-payments and accruals at the end of each month, and the invoicing process from start to finish is far less time consuming. The multi-currency capability of Hansa Financials will also be extremely useful when invoicing our overseas clients and the GroupÕs international offices.???

Airey concludes, "The level of support we have received from both Mac Accessory Centre as our reseller partner and from Hansa Business Solutions directly has been excellent. The fact that both parties have been accessible and responsive throughout the implementation process has ensured that the change over between systems has been a far quicker and smoother process than anticipated."

Impact is also currently evaluating the hotel and restaurant module for future use in organising reservations and event billing at its three country house hotels. This module was originally launched with version 3.9 of Hansa Financials and would allow Impact to effectively manage their staff, guests and stock at training events, whilst providing full integration to the back office.

As there were so few financial solutions available on the Mac platform, we did consider installing PC systems to make our selection process easier, though such a change posed huge cost implications. However, Hansa presented us with the only viable alternative that complied with our preference to continue operating on a Mac network, at an extremely competitive price.
