TTW implemented their on-premises legacy systems 20 years ago and needed to upgrade to a modern platform

For over sixty years, Taylor Thomson Whitting (TTW) have been shaping the built environment throughout Australia and South East Asia in structural, civil, traffic and facade engineering. One of their recent projects was the design and delivery of Wynyard Walk near the KPMG Barangaroo offices.

TTW engaged with KPMG to address some business challenges they were experiencing around their existing legacy systems.

The challenge

20 years ago TTW implemented their on-premises legacy systems of Dynamics GP, and an Intranet database, and needed to upgrade to a modern platform to suit their growing needs. Their existing systems didn’t provide the control they required for their accounts receivable (A/R) transactions and to generate the reports they needed. Each time they had to build the reports, they had to engage with technical resources.

The solution

KPMG recommended Financials for Office 365 – a scalable Microsoft cloud financial management and reporting ERP solution offering best practice A/R control and deep reporting capabilities in one solution. Financials for Office 365 offered TTW a low cost monthly subscription service with a familiar Microsoft interface, making it easy for employees to use, and with KPMG’s agile methodology, quick to implement.

The outcome

By choosing Financials for Office 365, TTW has greater confidence in the quality of their internal controls, and have saved time with easy access to the reports they need. TTW’s decision to transition to the cloud also reduced their reliance on on-premises servers, that will eventually be retired.

Susan (CFO, TTW), says: “The TTW way of working is all about collaboration, innovation and sustainability, and we knew our legacy systems needed to evolve to meet these values. Thankfully the great team at KPMG invested time upfront to really understand our business objectives.

Through detailed collaboration they smoothly implemented Financials for Office 365 in a matter of weeks. We now have efficient ways to report our sales data by engineering segments, have gained powerful insights into our business, save up to 7 hours per week in reporting and most importantly moved into the cloud. The solution was easily adopted by our team and instantly improved our working environment.’’
