Using Sage cloud software will future proof the activity and processes of the RSPCA.
Sage has announced that the RSPCA has opted to use its X3 business management system that has the ability to operate in the cloud. A key target of the move is to maximise the benefit from the donations received by the organisation.
The RSPCA had been looking to implement an end-to-end solution for finance and business management that will be able to run finance functions in the back office.
The charity has a range of internal stakeholders including inspectors that travel, office based support staff and vets. The agility of a system that can access cloud will benefit the varying roles within the charity, opening up the ability to access data regardless of time or place.
An additional benefit for companies that opt to use a service that can access the cloud is the significant savings made by not needing to invest heavily in IT infrastructure.
Michael Ward, Chief Operating Officer, RSPCA said: “It will also support the process of gaining greater clarity and leverage of information as the system will enable our finance teams to be more responsive to requests for data and enabling the financials to be available to multiple areas of the charity at any time.”
Not only will it provide solutions to immediate problems, the goal is also to future proof the charity and its future activity with greater power and adaptability.
“Sage X3 allows greater collaboration between departments. The increased level of consolidation of all our information means we can operate as effectively and efficiently as possible, while cutting down the amount of time we spend cross checking information.” Mr Ward said.
David Watts, VP Enterprise UK, Sage, said: “The agility of Sage X3 benefits lots of our customers. For the RSPCA, it allows them to be responsive to the needs of its remote key stakeholders, while the functionality allows the charity to maximise decision-making but minimise overhead costs, helping them to operate as efficiently as possible, while future-proofing its business.
