Case Study - Brunel University - Reporting, Cash-flow and Budget Control

Overview

Located in Uxbridge, Middlesex, Brunel University offers around 650 courses to 13,000 students across four campuses.

Challenge/Requirements
• Smarter solution for reporting
• Tighter integration to improve cash-flow
• Need for better budgetary control

Gary Brown, Systems Development Accountant, commented, “The time spent on reporting was too high and there was virtually no integration between different systems. A lot of paperwork was being generated and information had to be re-keyed into the core finance package causing large amounts of unnecessary work and the danger of costly errors.”

The work involved in reporting was significant, taking a total of 15 man-days each month to prepare and distribute information to over 100 recipients. “There were several arguments for introducing greater integration” says Gary Brown. “But one of the principal drivers was to improve our cash-flow, by improving the management of our student debt.”

Solution:
Brunel University moved to bluQube and looked to its improved functionality to help address its key challenges.
