Internationalisation Emakina: a far-reaching collaboration
Streamlining financial departments across different countries is not a ready-set, let alone a do-it-yourself job. We have been providing tailor-made consultancy for fifteen years, and have seen Emakina evolve into a large company that carries the success factor to go far beyond borders.
Internationalisation, a real challenge for the finance department
A financial team is constantly challenged with changes from the outside such as legislation, but also internal changes, such as expansion and internationalisation. Emakina has agencies in Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, Vienna, Stockholm, and far outside Europe in cities like Dubai, Cape Town and Singapore. The international success of Emakina today translates into a need for automation and specifically internationalisation of the financial departments across its entities in different countries. The need for accurate and real-time reporting, data that is easy to verify, and agility, calls for streamlining processes. Moreover, a finance team that mainly works remotely with different systems remains a challenge.
The necessity for a uniform approach, structure and reporting method soon becomes clear. But how do you streamline all departments and digitise financial processes as best as possible? At NORRIQ we stand by one clear awnser: with Microsoft 365 Business Central.
Digitising financial data provides better insight into business performance through unified reports and drill-down analytics across different countries. In addition, the right departments get a clear view of all the financial data that is generated, clear and systematically. This increases efficiency within the international team. In a nutshell, error-prone Excel spreadsheets are replaced by a single business software solution, resulting in a single source of reliable information. In a number of countries, Emakina has already successfully completed the full switch to Microsoft 365 Business Central.
Implementation of Invoice Workflow
In addition to the implementation of Microsoft 365 Business Central, our consultants also ensured the realisation of Invoice Workflow for Emakina's financial department. This digital solution optimises accounting processing through digitisation, automation and efficient workflow, from the receipt of an invoice to its digital archiving. With the digitisation of the entire workflow, Emakina saves up to 50% of their time. Invoice Workflow can also be fully integrated with 365 Business Central, meaning that this solution is popular in the financial department, but it is also simple to implement.
An international mindset that takes you across the globe
Our expertise in the financial world is widespread. We understand the culture and challenges of a financial department at a deep level. Where an international approach with local touchpoints is often a hurdle, it is a NORRIQ strength. Thanks to the international mindset of our consultants, combined with our local partners, we offer a “no fail” guarantee and a collaboration that tackles and eliminates any thinkable problem.
Emakina x NORRIQ, a story of long-term trust
Fifteen years ago, in an era where invoices were still sent by fax and floppy disks were today’s cloud servers, the international Digital Agency Emakina Group became a customer. Our relationship and projects over the years have always been characterised by stability, mutual trust and an appreciation for our knowledge and experience. And we would like to continue this lasting relationship.
Frédéric Desonnnay, CFO of Emakina Group looks back on the positive collaboration: “Our first interactions with NORRIQ dates back to 2006, when NORRIQ was still known as Helios. We were looking for an experienced and reliable Microsoft partner to implement Dynamics NAV 2007 as an ERP. From day one, we were in touch with senior professionals who are not only technically strong, but also understand our business challenges very well.”
“We see NORRIQ more as a business partner than a technical advisor. Of course we also experienced some obstacles, but we have always found solutions together. The biggest challenge was staying efficient in our interactions, in addition to the significant geographic growth of Emakina, which required local support from other Microsoft partners abroad. Whenever we reached out to other Microsoft partners, I quickly realised that NORRIQ was way above average in terms of quality of services. At Emakina, our reputation is that we always deliver what we promise. This certainly also applies to NORRIQ. The combination of NORRIQ's talent with a high-performing in-house team is the secret of such a lasting relationship.”
NORRIQ always brings the right profile, with the right knowledge to the customer. That way, we make sure to play a valuable role in guiding your project.
