Is your current finance system costing you too much and lacking functionality?

Is your current finance system costing you too much and lacking functionality?

When thinking about changing finance systems, affordability is understandably a primary consideration for housing providers. The face value cost of an on-premise solution may seem the more cost-effective option, but taking into account the total running costs of the solution, a cloud solution can offer value for money with no heavy investment in IT infrastructure. 

It’s not just about the cost. The Regulator of Social Housing set out its view of the key challenges facing the social housing sector back in October 2022. Substantial financial pressure is one of the top challenges on the list. Under this pressure, the last things you want from your financial system is inflexible, difficulty of use or data falling into the wrong hands. You need accurate, single source of the truth information to drive decision-making. 

Advanced Financials is a cloud-based Finance and Purchase to Pay solution with a modern look and feel, conducive for use by Finance and non-Finance people. Enabling you to manage multiple business units and view data across the company via powerful reporting, empowering you to make faster and smarter data-driven decisions.
