As the organisation grew it needed a solution that would support and scale up as its business needs expanded.
The Codestone team were very knowledgeable and helpful and have enabled us to move forward successfully
Founded in 2013 as part of the wider Catapult programme – a government-supported network of elite technology and innovation centres, each with their own specific sector focus – TSC focuses on transforming the UK’s capability for innovation within the transport sector and to help drive future economic growth.
Understanding the Problem
TSC had been using Sage at a basic level but as the organisation grew it needed a solution that would support and scale up as its business needs expanded.
Part of a network of companies, some of which had already implemented SAP solutions, TSC wanted to improve the way it handled its financial data, transactions and timesheets to ensure everything could automatically update and flow seamlessly.
“It was key that all our financial data would flow efficiently to allow us to report and make better, more informed decisions.”
Making it Work
Codestone implemented SAP Business ByDesign for its capability of delivering a single integrated cloud-based ERP solution that would enable the company to manage all of its core financial activities.
The managed cloud solution unites TSC’s business functions and optimises its financial processes including the ability to handle all financial transactions, VAT returns, bank activities and overall financial management and reporting.
With SAP Business ByDesign TSC is also able to adopt a systematic approach to efficient project and time sheet management.
Codestone took time to understand our needs and scope out a project plan for us. It was a success and as a result we’ve already set up four other companies.
