AccTech Systems has been appointed by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) to implement all core modules of Accpac’s accounting solution on Accpac ERP 500.
Looking for a cost effective, functionally rich accounting system, SANBI required a solution, which could be effectively implemented across all their business units. This includes eight National Botanical Gardens, three research centres, environmental education programmes and field research throughout South Africa.
Sunjit Singh, chief financial officer at SANBI, says that Softline Accpac was the organisation’s preferred choice as it offered them an affordable yet technologically advanced accounting solution.
Tertius Zitzke, MD of AccTech Systems, adds: “We implemented all core modules at SANBI, including General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Cash Book and Report Writer. Further modules are being implemented in phase two and three.”
Singh says that the implementation was hassle free. “The consultants from AccTech Systems ensured that the migration from the old system to Softline Accpac was successful. This instilled a great sense of confidence in the system amongst our general staff and management.”
He adds that SANBI has already experienced numerous benefits, even though the implementation is still ongoing: monthly processing times have improved, data remains secure and the system reports are now rolled out to all non-finance managers, which is a huge time-saving.
Singh says the electronic cash book reconciliation feature has also sped up the bank reconciliation.
