Case Study: Warren Evans – Payroll Integrator

Warren Evans improves speed of month end processing through implementation of Cloudtamers payroll interface for NetSuite by one working day.

Introduction:

Warren Evans is a manufacturer and retailer of high quality beds throughout Southern England. They are England’s largest independent bed maker and have 225 employees. The business was built on a passion to deliver quality, on time, in better style and for less than the competition. Currently they are experiencing 10% growth annually.

Problem:

Warren Evans uses Sage to operate their two monthly payrolls covering hourly and monthly paid employees. Manual extracts from Sage payroll were used to prepare the monthly journals for posting to the NetSuite ledgers – a process that was becoming ever more time consuming as a result of 10% annual growth within the business. It was becoming a bottle neck to completion of the management accounts. They decided to bring in Cloudtamers Payroll Integrator to speed up the process of generating management accounts and to release account executive time for more productive activities such as investigating and analysing monthly results.

Solution:

Warren Evans implemented the Cloudtamers payroll interface for NetSuite, automating the month end journals. Month end processing of payroll now takes 15 minutes instead of one day.

According to Adarsh Katechia, Head of Finance at Warren Evans, “Automating the process has simplified our month end routines and we now have more time to analyse and investigate our results. Rebecca and her team guided us through the implementation and they have provided excellent ongoing support when we needed it.”

He continues “The menu based pricing from Cloudtamers provides me with certainty of my costs within a high growth environment. We also achieved payback on our initial investment within 3 months. Based on this excellent achievement, we are now evaluating Cloudtamers’ HR modules as well.”

According to Sikander Kazi, Accounts Executive at Warren Evans, “The Payroll Integrator has allowed me to complete the payroll journal quickly. This ease of work is very welcome when the department is under pressure to complete the management accounts. Cloudtamers are helpful and supportive. Liaising between us and them is very friendly, support has been really good and is there all the time.”
