Xledger – a solution to grow with
Tussa had an old-school on-premise ERP system that was ripe for replacement. It was expensive to maintain and didn’t operate in new technologies. Tussa recognised Xledger was a fantastic fit for their company with the benefits of automation, insight and scalability. Tussa signed up to Xledger in December 2017.
‘It was on the cards that we needed to switch to a newer version of the same system, but we realised that we really did not need major customisation and tailoring. We do essentially the same as everyone else in accounting and economics, and therefore chose to check out more solutions. Overall, we considered five ERP systems. The functionality we looked at in Xledger far exceeded what we saw in the other competitors. Xledger has all the functionality we need is already in place.
The challenge with traditional systems is that they can be developed in different directions, and it will quickly become very comprehensive. Now we automate processes such as invoice handling, timetables and travel plans.
And not least, I look forward to better reporting opportunities with real-time data. Xledger is growing and we see new things coming forward that we can benefit from in our development of the group.’ (Tussa, Knut Øyvind Myklebust, Chief Accountant)
