Given Pacific Radiology’s size, regional spread, ongoing growth, and a series of upcoming acquisitions, it was clear to Richard Hollows, Group Financial Planning & Analysis Manager, that the business needed to relinquish its reliance on the manually maintained spreadsheets produced by multiple finance staff.
“The growth from individual, relatively small medical practices to being the biggest provider of radiology services in New Zealand has meant we've had to improve all our systems. Like a lot of organisations, we require multiple layers of business unit and branch reporting. It was obvious we needed seamless access to all our data to make changes faster than it was possible using endless Excel files,” says Hollows.
“While Excel did the job, we recognised the risks of continued dependency as our needs became more complex. The idea behind the project was to replace spreadsheets with a more robust and error-free way to manage our reporting, planning and forecasting. Our primary objectives included consolidation across all entities, autonomy in creating our reports, and access to centralised data.”
Hollows and Pacific Radiology had worked with Fusion5 previously and enjoyed the positive experience. So, talking to them about achieving more detailed budgeting and forecasting using an industry-proven solution like Workday Adaptive Planning was a natural next step. Impressed with Fusion5’s expertise and the solution’s capabilities, Pacific Radiology decided to proceed with the project.
