The Situation

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health is the largest brain research group in the Southern Hemisphere with dedicated researchers working on a range of serious diseases.

The institute needed assistance to implement a business system that met their key requirements that included:

  1. Enable the administration of $60mil p.a. in funding
  2. Simplify and automate processes
  3. Remove unnecessary costs
  4. Provide sound business administration
  5. Save time and free up its scientists to focus on their important research
  6. Remove the need for paper based forms and systems
  7. Ensure easy and remote access to information
  8. Provide transparency and reporting
  9. Be configured for the Australian taxation system
  10. Receive comprehensive training and ongoing support

Having been down this path before with mixed results, The Florey were also frustrated by the process of trying to work with 3 different business systems that were fragmented and not properly integrated. In some instances this had led to counter productive paper based work-arounds.

The Florey were looking for a reliable partner with the experience to provide appropriate advice and guidance as well as the expertise to deliver – they found that partner in Ndver:

“We wanted a dependable system with a proven track-record. We are trying to solve some of the greatest medical challenges of our time, so we need a solid partner to provide the backbone”

The Solution

Based on a detailed scope and analysis, Ndevr listed to the specific needs of The Florey in order to specify a system that would provide the seamless integration that The Florey were looking for, as well as meeting all of their key requirements.

Ndevr recommended MYOB Greentree as a suitable integrated business system and specified a product suite that included:

  • Financial Management
  • Service & Asset Management
  • HR & Payroll
  • Job Cost Management
  • Workflow
  • eBusiness

The Florey confirmed that Ndevr and MYOB Greentree met all of their requirements and they are delighted with the results.

For example, features such as the Mobile Timesheets mean that the researchers and manages can handle their admin and workflow quickly and efficiently – all while eliminating paperwork.

In addition, the system allows effective management of HR & Payroll, as well as the ability to control and manage the use of regulated substances and the highly sophisticated medical equipment.

Importantly, the powerful reporting included in the financial management suite provides the highly detailed financial statements required by directors.

Ndevr provided full project management as well as comprehensive training to ensure that the implementation of the system went smoothly and delivered to our clients expectations.

“Greentree is reliable and easy to use, so our researchers can concentrate on keeping us at the forefront of brain research”
