LAKE today announced that Solihull College has chosen LAKE to help streamline financial management and procurement with a system based on the market-leading SunSystems and Proactis software. College specialists, LAKE, were chosen for the quality of their support and partnership approach to system implementation. The LAKE solution replaces QLx Financials from Unit4.
In replacing their finance system Solihull College are looking for significant added value from their investment. Heather Evans, Director of Finance for the College explains:
"We are looking to reduce the volume of paper. By extending our existing models for ordering to include such things as online invoice authorisation and rolling these processes out around the college, we hope to make our systems much more efficient...
.. We have completed work with procurement cards but feel that there is more we could do to streamline...
.. Reporting is another area for further improvement. At the moment reports are there but information is hard to get at. We want to develop the quality of information and ease of access with features such as drill down."
The selection of LAKE resulted from a formal process that included a contract notice in Supplement to the Official Journal. College specialists, LAKE, were chosen for the quality of their support and partnership approach to system implementation.
Heather Evans explains:
"We were looking at finance systems that would interface with our student records system and whatever HR system we bought. We wanted a provider who would work with us to make sure those interfaces worked effectively...
.. The LAKE solution ticked all the boxes for our functional requirements. But more importantly, it was the approach of the people we met from LAKE and the support we felt we were going to receive that made the difference."
