Another leading charity has selected LAKE Financial Systems to implement a new finance system based on Infor SunSystems software. SunSystems was chosen as the 'best of breed' solution with great reporting features. LAKE were chosen for the quality of their approach and services they provide.
Director of Finance for the charity outlines the reasons for seeking a new system and for selecting SunSystems.
"Our current Finance software had been a candidate for an upgrade for a number of years and support was due to expire. A couple of years ago we considered moving to a fully integrated system that included Payroll, HR as well as Finance but the more we looked into it the more obvious it became that approach was not right for us. It would have been hugely expensive and would not have delivered the sort of accounting functionality we need.
"We did some online research and asked other charities what finance systems they were using. SunSystems was clearly a leading contender so we included it in our shortlist, alongside a review of the upgrade option being offered by our current finance software provider.
"There were a number of factors that set SunSystems apart from the other options we looked at. SunSystems is a ‘best of breed’ finance system with a modern approach to analysis and a really flexible reporting system that is easy to use. And with LAKE, SunSystems comes with an excellent level of support."
The choice of LAKE was an important element in the selection process. Director of Finance explains:
"I have been hugely impressed by LAKE and would strongly encourage other charities to consider them when considering an upgrade or new Finance system. LAKE has a way of attracting the best people and it shows in their approach. They are genuinely interested in you as a client and sincerely want to deliver the best for you. Their consultants listen, think and then respond in a measured way"
