DC Thomson Group move to one single unified finance function with Maginus
How did DC Thomson Group move their finance systems, procurement and project management solution onto a single unified function?
DC Thomson finance teams were recently amalgamated to introduce one finance team servicing the Group.
Those teams were still using multiple different accounting and financial management platforms. Microsoft Dynamics AX, a highly customisable and adaptable enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform, was the popular choice for several of the teams. However, so many variable configurations and iterations were in place that even these operated like separate solutions.
As a result disparities existed in how finance processes and functions were handled. To run an effective group finance function, DC Thomson required a single, consolidated solution and chose Maginus to deliver this.
Gillian Troup, Group Financial Controller at DC Thomson said: “We felt comfortable working alongside Maginus as they were open and honest while offering a very personal approach. With an implementation of this scale, people make the difference between success and failure. Maginus integrated themselves into the DC Thomson team, and their tenacity and commitment were instrumental to our eventual success.”
Since the go-live, the implementation has already delivered a return-on-investment, achieving cost savings, and greater speed and accuracy of accounts production.
