George Clinical boosts organizational efficiencies by switching from Microsoft Dynamics to FinancialForce
“By better capturing customer data, we've boosted organizational efficiencies and saved approximately 38 hours per week. Plus, it's brilliant having a single-entry point for various currencies. I don't see how we could have achieved such dramatic results without FinancialForce and its team of experts.” Beulah D'Souza, Senior Finance Manager, George ClinicalDownload PDF
Outgrowing Microsoft Dynamics
As a clinical research organization (CRO), George Clinical works with clients in the healthcare industry to improve processes and protocols for drug testing, therapeutics, medical device testing, and more. With project managers operating across 13 entities around the world, the CRO struggled with inconsistent sets of client data. Plus, as George Clinical transitioned from a nonprofit to a commercial entity, its reporting requirements changed in a way that Microsoft Dynamics couldn't support. The CRO was forced to add steps to key processes and manually transfer data between systems.
- 25% Reduced accounting workload
- 38+ Hours saved per week
- 1 System entry for multiple currencies across 13 entities
Natively built on the Salesforce platform and customized to George Clinical's specifications, FinancialForce enables a seamless flow of expenses through a more efficient process. George Clinical estimates it has saved more than 38 hours each week.
