Following Trend, Another IES Customer, Lilly & Associates, Reports 25% Productivity Increase

Press release September 11, 2009 Business

The announcement from logistics provider Lilly International follows closely on the heels of another IES customer who similarly cited a 25% increase in entry file productivity.


Susana Agras, Controller atLilly& Associates International explains the announcement from Lilly and Associates, “For years, the effectiveness of Lilly & Associates International financial operations and business processes were constrained by off-the-shelf software and manual processes,” continues Ms. Agras, "Other accounting products simply lacked the scalability needed by such a fast-growing, international business. Accounting processes were bottlenecked by cumbersome workflow, requiring spreadsheets to be e-mailed around the company. The company needed a modern, nimble partner for its accounting needs in order to stay focused and effective. But we did not want to pay the $250,000 estimated cost to install and maintain traditional on-premise software. IES is an excellent technology partner, with just the right combination of scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness.”


“After a series of product rollouts fromIES, our accounting group is 25% more productive. The flexibility and convenience of one integrated software package that includes accounting has given us deeper and more immediate insight into the company's direction and financial processes. Now we can analyze the performance of each of our individual branch offices in the United States and throughout South America. The bottom line is that we now have an advanced system for our financial controls and yet we still find the system intuitive and easy to use. We are able to get new users up-to-speed very quickly, and that is crucial as our overseas expansion continues."
