With approximately 100 employees and 70 volunteers across Australia, the Catholic Mission provides funding and project support to projects aimed at benefiting children and communities across the country.
The Catholic Mission was looking for a single solution to remove the burden of working with different systems and numerous spreadsheets that were not integrated. It was also looking for a system that offered scalability in order to keep up with the growth the organisation experienced.
It needed a financial system that was able to record electronic copies of all transactions' documents facilitating the overall auditing process and providing better structured financial reports.
The Catholic Mission chose Unit4 Business World, a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software which was integrated by its long-term Australian partner Agilyx Group.
Agilyx first worked on core financials, accounts payable and receivable, and project accounting, which took six months. The second phase is currently taking place with human resources and payroll now being implemented and it is expected to be concluded this month.
According to Uni4, the organisation has experienced a significant uptake of digital modules, which has led to improved administration of expenses.
The Unit4 solutions have been able to provide a full audit trail that offers the ability to track a transaction through the system and see where it started, where it finished and trace the end back to its source.
"It’s important, as a public charity, that our donors have confidence that our financials are sound and that, when asked to produce proof of an event, we can provide the right documentation," said Andrew Hurt corporate services director at Catholic Mission.
The Catholic Mission found Agilyx professional, flexible and supportive. Agilyx took time to understand the organisation's needs and was able to offer a solution that Catholic Mission was satisfied with.
