Nesoi Solutions joins Deloitte
As Deloitte and Concur sign strategic alliance
3 October 2017: As businesses and finance teams across Australia become more digitally savvy, and desire more flexible digital finance solutions, Deloitte has signed a strategic alliance with Concur®, an SAP® company, and announced that the team from Nesoi Solutions, Australia’s most experienced Concur services business, will join the professional services firm.
Concur is a leader in travel, expense and invoice management, providing cloud-based, SaaS scalable solutions to take companies of all sizes and stages beyond automation to a completely connected spend management solution encompassing travel, expense, invoice, compliance and risk.
“Employees and management are often on different pages when it comes to the traditional processes used to manage travel, expenses and accounts payable,” said Deloitte Advisory Partner, Greg Haskins.
“Digital disruption means businesses are moving faster and they don’t want to be slowed down by inefficient processes. When it comes to spend management, organisations are hungry for a tool that will speed up claiming and reimbursement processes while also making it simpler to manage spending and enforce policies.
“Concur provides a way for businesses to streamline and automate their finance processes and improve productivity across the whole organisation and we’re seeing a lot of interest in the accounts payable automation solution in particular. We use Concur ourselves at Deloitte because it’s the best in its class and supports a mobile workforce.”
Deloitte’s report, Crunch Time: Finance in a Digital World, highlights that cloud platforms like Concur are one of seven digital tools that CFOs and finance teams can use to embrace, rather than fear, the digital disruption that is rapidly reshaping the world of finance.
“Deloitte sees significant synergies in working with Concur,” said Deloitte Corporate Advisory Leader Geoff Lamont. “We have deep expertise across the end-to-end finance process for businesses of all sizes, helping to automate month-end reconciliation, easing the burden of data capture and supporting finance teams through the rapid technological and digital disruption underway.”
Bradley Burt, Deloitte Consulting Partner, added that “Deloitte is recognised globally as the number one SAP S/4 HANA practice. And with more than 16,000 practitioners dedicated to SAP solutions in our global network we are well placed to advise big businesses on how to integrate Concur into large scale SAP-based enterprise programs.”
Matt Goss, managing director, ANZ, Concur, said, “We are excited about the new alliance with Deloitte in Australia and New Zealand. Nesoi Solutions enhances Deloitte’s existing Concur practice and service expertise. This will provide businesses in Australia and New Zealand with another key channel to access the Concur spend management platform. It will also allow Concur to further extend our presence in the market.”
The Nesoi Solutions team joins Deloitte
“With Concur recognised as a leader in travel and expense management, we are increasingly being asked by our clients to implement it,” said Greg Haskins. “The team from Nesoi Solutions brings us deep expertise in Concur configuration and support services and Deloitte is now able to support clients through all aspects of their Concur journey, from business case planning and configuration through to training and change management.”
Nesoi Solutions started working with Concur over six years ago and is the company’s longest standing delivery partner. It has worked with more Concur clients than any other provider in Australia.
As a result of the transaction, Nesoi director Mick Lavers will become a Deloitte advisory partner and Nesoi’s other three staff will join Deloitte’s Advisory team in Sydney as directors.
Mick Lavers said he was looking forward to joining Deloitte: “Being a part of Deloitte provides scale and leverages our experience from more than 70 Concur clients. Deloitte provides signiificant market reach and confidence that we will have the resources to maximise the opportunities for accounts payable automation and improved management of travel and expenses.”
