Microsoft Dynamics NAV makes a Flying Start for Loyalty NZ THE SITUATION Loyalty New Zealand Limited manages Fly Buys, the largest loyalty rewards programme in New Zealand with over 2.7 million Fly Buys cardholders. Fly Buys launched in 1996 and now has 80% penetration in NZ households. The group of businesses that makes up Loyalty NZ sees their investment in Fly Buys as an unmatchable long-term competitive advantage, and thus attached great weighting to the need to have a strategic financial package that would support long-term business growth. Loyalty NZ was constrained by an existing legacy accounting application that was not robust enough or scalable for the business, was prohibitive to maintain and delivered little reporting functionality. Desiring a multi-dimensional view of their financial processes and more dynamic reporting tools, Loyalty NZ went to the market to identify a technology partner that could demonstrate proven expertise in strategic financial applications. THE PAIN Hamstrung by an inflexible accounting platform that was not meeting rapid business growth, Loyalty NZ sought a robust, scalable solution that would produce a real time view of key business processes. One company’s experience is another’s gain. Loyalty NZ was strongly influenced by the measurable business gains that Intergen had secured for the Electricity Commission with the deployment of Microsoft Dynamics NAV coupled with Intergen’s Invoice Approval Master module. Finance Manager Stephen Bayley says: “Intergen stood out as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, and their work with the Electricity Commission spoke volumes. They were able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of Microsoft Dynamics NAV by showing - OK here’s how we understand this customer’s business environment and here’s how we can add measurable business value. Intergen’s Invoice Approval Master streamlined our invoice approval process and is a great example of the measurable business value Intergen provided.” Lloyd O’Keefe, Project Manager for Intergen, says: “Loyalty NZ had a number of key business drivers which we could confidently tick off on this project.” “We first undertook shadowing exercises to understand their business practices. We then designed improved business processes that delivered better efficiencies across financial administrations tasks, provided smarter tools for budget holders to increase their accountability, and provided more flexible and strategic reporting and data mining. It was all about improving business performance to increase the level of service to Loyalty NZ’s business participants.” 10 week turnaround - on time, on budget Loyalty NZ’s financial team saw immediate efficiencies in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV tools to manage its general ledger, accounts payable (including scanned invoices integrated with SharePoint for invoice approvals), accounts receivable, fixed assets and web-based reporting. to manage their cost centres more effectively. We’ve been able to tighten up on processing at the front end, and we’ll start to see some real gains in administrative processing times. We’ve got 100% data capture, quality reporting and a richer environment to work with. Some wins will be immediate, but the real intention was creating a robust platform that will provide what we need in the future, by bolting on more capabilities as required. Looking longterm, we expect further benefits.” THE GAIN Microsoft Dynamics NAV has made a flying start, bringing a whole magnitude of financial accounting and reporting tools to the table for Loyalty NZ. Stephen Bayley comments: “We definitely have a new ability to slice and dice information in a more strategic manner, and that will give more independence to business groups ENGINE ROOM > Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5 > Intergen Invoice Approval Master > Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services > Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services
