Roke Manor Research develops communications and electronic systems for civil and defense uses. It is one of the UK’s top companies for patent filings.
Prior to the decision to deploy Quadrate, there were several labour-intensive SAP® applications in use at Roke Manor that were taking up a great deal of valuable time and resources.
These included general ledger postings that entailed the uploading of large journals (400 plus lines) and making changes to HR master data (changing annual holiday entitlement, cost centres, activity types etc.). Other lengthy tasks included changing the asset master data task (changing the depreciation life of a certain asset class from 2-3 years) and creating material master records.
Key IT and Business Challenges
- Reducing time of labour-intensive applications to upload large journals and changing HR master data
- Reduced time for general ledger postings and making changes to asset master data
Why BackOffice Associates?
