Infinitus Reporting facilitate the Budgeting, Forecasting and Monthly Reporting Solution for Esorfranki Geotechnical “Geotech”
Incorporating Esor Africa and Franki Africa, Esorfranki Geotechnical is a ‘one-stop geotechnical shop’ - the largest specialist civil and geotechnical contractor in South Africa and the most established in the Sub-Saharan Africa region. The group offers a full ‘design and construct’ service, while the 2008 acquisition of GCD has boosted market share in the fields of dynamic compaction, soil improvement, micro piling and lateral support.
Geotech required a software solution to perform consolidated budgeting, forecasting and monthly reporting based on the Geotech reporting requirements, further, the group also required a solution to assist in meeting the reporting requirements of their holding company, Esorfranki Construction (Pty) Ltd, without duplicating work. Key to the requirement was integration between their current ERP system and RollupSheets, in order to enable automation of the Trial Balance import and completion of their contract schedule. Implementation timelines were also pressurised due to the imminent start of the annual financial reporting cycle.
Geotech engaged RollupSheets, who scoped the requirement accordingly and implemented monthly reporting, budgeting and forecasting solution, along with the necessary integrations with their ERP system. Processes were written to extract data from the Geotech reporting layout into the Esorfranki Construction reporting layout, therefore eliminating the duplication of work. The timeframes were managed and technical solutions were provided for the necessary integrations and client specific requirements during the four-week implementation process.
Geotech now have an end-to-end budgeting, forecasting and consolidation solution for monthly reporting which complies with the reporting requirements of Geotech and Esorfranki without duplicating efforts within the accounts team. The monthly process has been expedited and is facilitated with greater accuracy and control. Key financial staff are now able to focus their attention on value added analysis and reporting activities during the reporting cycle and beyond.
