Matthew Franceschini When Entity Solutions recognised that it had outgrown its accounting software, the multi-award-winning professional engagement (contractor management) services company turned to Evolution Business Systems (EBS) and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV enterprise management software to meet its needs.

With turnover growth of nearly 50 per cent in 2010-11, Entity Solutions choose Microsoft Dynamics NAV because it offered the ability to immediately meet its current needs and the flexibility to meet all requirements for the foreseeable future. For Entity Solutions CEO Matthew Franceschini, the Microsoft Dynamics NAV project was “the single most successful technology implementation I have ever seen” – on time, within budget and delivering more than EBS initially promised.

With 10 employees and both national and international customers, EBS is now reaping the rewards of a major initiative in 2008 when it began partnering with Microsoft in addition to its historically strong relationship with Arrow Software. EBS has repeatedly won the Arrow Business Partner of the Year award.

Benefits delivered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV and EBS include:

  •    Cutting two days from the time required to prepare half-year financial reports
  •    Consolidating five separate databases into one integrated system
  •    Greater accuracy through the elimination of manual processes and external spreadsheets
  •    Managing project budgeting and expenditure more effectively than other solutions
  •    Availability of consolidated reporting at the click of a few buttons
“EBS put a lot of time into the upfront understanding of what we wanted.”

EBS director Paul Woods Centacare Ballarat has halved the time required to compile month-end reports since national ERP specialist Evolution Business Systems deployed the Microsoft Dynamics NAV accounting solution.

The Victorian-based Catholic social service organisation, which has more than 220 employees, 13 offices and a $16-million-dollar annual budget, recognised in early 2010 that its existing accounting software was no longer meeting its need to manage as many as 60 different cost centres.

Funded by both Federal and State governments, Centacare Ballarat services include homeless support, advocacy for aged housing, mental health and drug rehabilitation programs, marriage counselling programs and employment services. Each program has rigorous reporting requirements.
