The audit process is over - what now for the public sector?

Jun 06 2014

It’s the middle of June, the hassle of the end of year process is behind you, so surely now you can sit back and relax?

Certainly not! Now is the time to seek potential improvements in order for next year to be as hassle free as possible.

Firstly, how was year-end? Were there any hard lessons learnt that you can apply next year?

When speaking with our clients and customers, a lot of discussions have arisen with regards to issues with reporting, namely being able to find the relevant reports within the system at the right time.

A re-fresh on how the system works could be of benefit to you and this is where RAM can help.

It can be easy to overlook some of Asset4000’s features, but getting used to re-using some of the key tools you may have forgotten or overlooked is essential. We know that many of you will be used to doing things in a certain way and will have processes in place that have worked for years.  But when sticking to these processes some of the newer parts of the system, which are there to make your life easier, can become overlooked.

However, it is essential to use the system more pro-actively and re familiarise yourselves with the aspects you may have forgotten about. There is a lot of functionality incorporated within the system that a lot of clients didn’t know existed initially but now couldn’t live without.

And when it comes to help, we are there. We have a comprehensive support team set up to answer any questions and queries at any time and if you don’t know what a part of the system does, or are unsure about how to relate it to your organisation, then just ask.

The time it takes to pick up the phone and give us a call will be nothing in comparison to time wasted manually calculating figures which you could do with the click of a button if only you knew how.

And don’t forget to feedback. We are always striving to improve our services and systems so if there is something that you would like the system to do which it doesn’t currently then please do let us know.

We are already launching two new products that could benefit your organisation in the future. The first; Export4000, will help automatically generate reports as little or as often as you choose. This will relieve you from having to manually generate these reports from within the system.

Secondly, our Depreciate4000 module will rule out the set process of running  the depreciation calculation. This new module will eliminate the time spent waiting for the system to complete  calculations and will help to streamline the whole depreciation process.

By acting and adapting to these changes now, the stress and hassle of next year’s audit will hopefully be lessened.
