Advanced Business Solutions would like to thank Science Warehouse, a strategic partner, for supporting the 2011 Advanced Connect Customer Conference.
The annual event took place in London on the 13th September and Science Warehouse joined us, along with 200 of our customers, for the chance to connect with fellow users and the Advanced team, gain useful hints & tips and learn more about the exciting developments planned for the future
On the day, Steve Kerridge of Science Warehouse delivered a 30 minute Industry Expert workshop session entitled 'Purchase-to-pay-drive savings through active spend management'. This demonstrated how customers can benefit from maintaining tighter financial control over their supplier contracts to drive compliance and obtain best value purchasing through the integration of Advanced Financial Management solutions and Science Warehouse spend control tools.
At the conference Advanced launched the latest version of its financial management solution, OpenAccounts, which fully integrates Science Warehouse’s e-procurement solutions and sees the release of two new modules: Carbon Accounting and Rent Accounting, along with other significant developments.
Carbon Accounting allows for the capture and reporting of data relevant to carbon emissions, whilst Rent Accounting permits organisations to monitor the provision of rented accommodation. ‘Forensix’, a new feature within the solution, also aids in the prevention of fraud.
The integration between the Advanced and Science Warehouse solutions creates a complete on-demand procurement portal between organisations and their suppliers for rapid electronic ordering and invoicing through a fully managed catalogue. This supports Advanced Business Solutions’ promise to be proactive and committed to broadening the scope of the Smart Business Suite’s footprint to ensure it covers our customers’ requirements.
The Advanced Business Solutions’ Smart Business Suite combines core business management systems, integrated with a range of collaborative and business intelligence solutions, to extend the value and effectiveness of the finance, HR & payroll and operational departments across the organisation.
