"As part of the software rollout we were able to review and reengineer a substantial part of our processes," commented Sue Shale, Chief Financial Officer at Farrer & Co. "We worked closely with ADERANT's technical teams to adapt the system, in particular the new Timer gadget, to the way we identified as the best way forward from a business and end user perspective. As a result, we have a stable base on which to build a state-of-the-art business intelligence system. We are already seeing real benefits in streamlining our internal processes such as online billing.
