Blue Chip Data Systems has grown organically since 1992 to become a business with a £20 million turnover and 160 staff. With such growth, they needed to change their internal processes to adapt to the pace of change. “We have enhanced our processes as we’ve grown,” says Alex, “but sometimes it’s difficult to evolve efficiently and dynamically. Historically payroll, expenses and expense management had been very spreadsheet-based, with manual workflows, printouts, email approval and limited management information available at the end.” Driven by the need for accuracy and control over the expense management process, Alex Clemence, Finance Director at Blue Chip Data Systems, came to Concur because of the rapid deployment and localised tax rules built into the system. And it’s working well.
Why Blue Chip Data Systems Prefers Concur
“As an FD it’s important to know that you are keeping up to date with changes in HMRC rules. With Concur, as a Saas solution providing appropriate compliance updates, this process is far easier to manage.”
