Leading social enterprise, the Wise Group, is forging ahead with its business transformation after signing a Software as a Service (SaaS) deal with enterprise software provider, TechnologyOne.
This transformation will empower the organisation to more effectively deliver its community services across Scotland and the North East of England. The Wise Group offers a range of services including training and support for job-seekers, lifting people out of fuel poverty and supporting individuals transitioning from prison to build a better future.
Implementing TechnologyOne’s integrated SaaS solution will enable the Wise Group to overhaul its financial, business intelligence and budgeting capabilities. By capturing all financial information in a single place, expenditure can be easily tracked and dynamic reporting can be accessed for real-time decision-making.
The Wise Group will also use TechnologyOne’s HR and Payroll capabilities across the organisation, automating a number of business processes and offer self-service functionality to employees.
Speaking about the selection, the Wise Group‘s Business Transformation Director, Stuart McWhinnie, said they had a clear purpose when they embarked on their five-year business transformation programme.
“As a social enterprise, it is incredibly important to us that all our funding is channelled into the community services we provide. We needed to find ways to improve the business flow and efficiency of our operation, while becoming more proactive in the management of the business.”
“It was clear from the start that TechnologyOne’s modern, integrated, enterprise-grade solution was going to allow us to achieve that. The support that they offer, the system itself and the richness of functionality aligned to everything we want to achieve. I’m confident that we are going to see massive efficiency savings once we start to utilise the solutions towards the end of 2019.”
TechnologyOne’s UK Operating Officer, Anwen Robinson, said: “We are pleased to be supporting the Wise Group as they transform their business for the benefit of their staff and the many communities and individuals they support.”
