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.
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,” explains Fiona Green, Financial Controller, TSC.
Delivering integrated ERP
Codestone implemented SAP Business ByDesign for its capability of delivering a single integrated cloud-based ERP solution that would enable the firm to manage all its core financial activities.
The managed cloud solution unites TSC’s business functions and optimises its financial processes including VAT returns, bank activities and overall financial management and reporting. TSC can now 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,” says Fiona.
End-to-end business process benefits
SAP Business ByDesign is a solution that enables TSC’s 140 UK-based users to work from anywhere and will scale up as the business grows. At the same time optimised end-to-end business processes mean that every task is now systemic and carried out in an agreed way, with automated controls ensuring that TSC manages its approvals and core accounting processes seamlessly.
“The Codestone team were very knowledgeable and helpful and have enabled us to move forward successfully,” concludes Fiona.
