The Victorian Land Registry Services (VLRS) together with Progressive Business Technologies (PBT) implemented Sage Intacct to transform their financial business operations to improve efficiency, purchasing, and data visibility.
Who are VLRS?
VLRS is a technology and data insights company that was granted a 40-year concession by the Victorian Government in
2018 to run the commercial operations of the 160-year old Land Titles Office and Registry. It is a vital part of the Victorian
economy. Managing more than a million property transactions every year, VLRS maintains the integrity of one of Australia’s
largest registries, providing invaluable industry insights, while developing products and services that make life easier for their
customers, partners, and the people of Victoria.
We talked with Ani Chakraborty, General Manager – Technology and Information Services, to understand how the system was implemented and the key benefits achieved by the project.
In the first half of 2020, VLRS undertook a systems transformation review to replace the current financial system which at the time was Wiise. They evaluated the market for cloud-based ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems suitable for their requirements.
VLRS needed to record transactions at a company, department, cost centre, system and project level.
This led to improvements in reporting and data analysis. Another focus area for VLRS was to improve their purchasing workflows and approvals. From purchase orders through to supplier payments, VLRS required electronic approval workfows within the system based on each department’s delegated authority levels.
By utilising Sage Intacct’s Financial Reporting Engine, it enables reports that were manually prepared to now be system generated and self-served by those that need the information.
The seamless migration of detailed historical transactions from their existing system to Sage Intacct was of critical importance to VLRS. This required the migration of three years of historical transactions to maintain comparative reporting year on year.
Dedicated project teams for both VLRS and PBT worked together to complete the project. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the entire project was delivered remotely.
PBT has a very structured project implementation methodology. We worked closely throughout the seven main project stages with the VLRS Project Team. VLRS provided strong oversight and governance of its internal tasks, and key deliverables were kept on track. We utilised our team consisting of a Project Manager, Business Consultant, Software Developer & IT Engineer to execute our project tasks and meet the project deadline.
PBT is a leading partner for Sage Intacct Australia with a wealth of experience across a broad range of industries. We would love to talk to you about Sage Intacct cloud ERP & Financial software and how it can help your business.
