Case Studies

Department of Finance and Deregulation

The Department of Finance (DoFA) wanted to improve their Budgeting, Planning and Forecasting process, as they were using a spreadsheet based system which they found inefficient, time consuming and restrictive. DoFA also had unique requirements that could not be met by any existing software on the market without significant customisation and cost. Isidore implemented our Budgeting solution with all of the intricacies required by DoFA.

Commonwealth Rehabilitation Services

Isidore provided CRS Australia with our Budgeting solution which performed the same functions as their existing spreadsheets, was as easy for non-accounting managerial staff to use and was centralised in their Head office so admin staff could open and close access, make changes immediate and view the budgets as they were being entered by staff regardless of where they were located in Australia.

Geoscience Australia

Utilising the flexibility of Isidore, this assisted Geoscience to move to performing Forecasting, which would have previously been virtually impossible. Isidore now automatically integrates with Oracl Oracle (Geoscience's Financial Information Management System) so actuals are automatically loaded into Isidore each month, and relevant reporting can be performed for ongoing analysis.
