Making GDPR Do You Some Good

In a recent think piece, EASY SOFTWARE UK’s Marketing & Sales Director Howard Frear says we need to see GDPR as a positive change, rather than looking at the negatives.

GDPR has forced organisations to stand back and understand their data — so we should stop focusing on the challenges and instead focus on the positives of GDPR and how it can be advantageous to organisations.

For many organisations, data is a complex area, he notes — so there is no question that getting houses in order for GDPR may have finally brought in the required time, investment and considerable planning effort their data management projects require.

Reaching Contract Management Nirvana

In a recent blog EASY SOFTWARE UK’s George Haddaway laid out how a more digital approach to the vital business process of enterprise contract management would help UK businesses.

According to George, contracts are one of the most vital documents in a business — nothing gets bought or sold without one being written up, but as it stands, only 20% of companies have any sort of Contract Management tool.

George states that his experience with customers suggests if users did adopt a more structured Contract Management approach, though, they would soon benefit from five key benefits: centralisation, deadline control, workflow automation, reporting and compliance adherence.

UK Furniture Leader Fishpools Begins Digital Transformation With EASY

Bury St Edmunds, UK – September 11, 2017 – EASY Software UK is delighted to announce retailer Fishpools Furniture, the largest quality furniture store in the South East of England, has realised multiple digital efficiencies through use of its award-winning product suite.

Up until 2014, Fishpools stored all financial information and correspondence manually, which meant time had to be spent in paper-heavy business processes and workflows. The process had an effect on its ability to deal with queries, says the company.

Scanning and storage of Fishpools’ financial documentation with EASY’s technology has proven to be the answer, as Fishpools processes over 800 sales orders and delivery notes and around 400 invoices per week.

This now means team members are much more productive, as client, supplier and order information is far easier to store and search digitally as opposed to searching through filing cabinets.

Plus, it’s also hugely valuable for Fishpools to have all relevant sales, purchasing and financial information always available from an efficiency and regulatory point of view, as well as for immediate customer support and problem resolution.

Another benefit is increased physical space at the company, freed up by the ability to remove physical storage, says the company.

For Alice Norris, Fishpools’ Operations Director, “We got a return on investment from EASY, absolutely.

“We will continue to use EASY as the move to digital clearly benefits our business, and we expect our use of it to grow with us.”
