Windsor Driving Digital Transformation with Finance Automation
Windsor, the long-established nationwide car retailer has awarded Convergent, the Irish based Digital Transformation company, the contract to digitally transform and automate their finance and accounts payable functions. As part of the contract, Convergent’s solution will automate critical finance business processes such as invoice data entry, data matching and approvals – processes that are typically manual, time consuming and largely paper based. The finance and accounts payable automation project is part of an overall Digital Transformation Strategy that Windsor are rolling out within their organisation.
Commenting on the solution, Peter Nicholson, Windsor’s Managing Director, stated, “the visibility and control that we will have over our accounts payable information and processes, and our procurement process in general, will deliver huge benefits to our organisation. We anticipate that invoice approval times will drop considerably which will improve internal controls and risks as well as greatly assisting in the preparation of our monthly management accounts. By creating additional time for our finance team, we will empower them to shift focus to reducing costs rather than processing them.”
Change is very much on the agenda for Windsor who recently embarked on a successful rollout of their new brand identity and are at the forefront of the electric car revolution with the all new Nissan Leaf.
Commenting on this finance automation project, Niall McConnell, Commercial Director from Convergent stated, “working with Windsor is exciting and interesting because its shows the need and appetite for organisations like Windsor to constantly evolve and innovate to maintain and gain a competitive advantage. Finance Automation is only one aspect of a successful Digital Transformation strategy and we’re seeing a huge demand for our other solutions, such as Information Management, GDRP Compliance and Business Process Automation for HR and other business functions.”
