The School for Social Entrepreneurs partners with Xpedition to deliver on its digital strategy

The education provider is to modernise its processes with a next generation finance solution

The School for Social Entrepreneurs has selected Xpedition as its technology partner of choice to implement a new financial management system for the organisation powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

The School for Social Entrepreneurs helps people to tackle society’s biggest problems. It runs courses that empower social entrepreneurs to start, scale and strengthen organisations that make a positive difference as well as providing other forms of support, such as funding and mentoring.

In the school’s 25-year history it has made great strides in making a difference in communities through its social enterprise fellows. It is ambitious about the future in an increasingly challenging society. It wants to and can do more through its work but to do so change in internal systems is necessary to create greater resource through efficiencies.

Challenged by legacy systems, manual processes and inefficiencies – the organisation’s Digital Transformation Taskforce, responsible for delivering the company-wide digital transformation strategy – identified a new financial management solution that would increase productivity, efficiencies and modernise processes as a key area of investment for the business.

After evaluating available solutions on the market, Xpedition has been selected to deploy a next generation financial system for The School for Social Entrepreneurs, powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central with Continia add-on for Expense Management and Document Capture. 

The investment will enable The School for Social Entrepreneurs to streamline and automate its processes, save time and reallocate resource to value-creating projects. This will provide the organisation with a springboard from which it can scale and increase its reach as a social enterprise accelerator.

“We are in the process of implementing our digital transformation strategy which looks to fully digitise how we work as an organisation. We knew we needed a new finance system that is fit for purpose and would bring us into the modern age” says Victoria Hurdley, Chief Operating Officer at The School for Social Entrepreneurs.

“Maximised efficiencies with fewer manual processes will enable us to streamline the organisation and reallocate resources. Over the long term it will enable us to put our programmes into the hands of more people and communities that need them.”

“The School for Social Entrepreneurs considered a number of other solutions but Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Xpedition stood out to us. We were impressed with the team’s understanding of our specific requirements and their reputation within our industry.”

“We are thrilled The School of Social Entrepreneurs has selected Xpedition as its Microsoft Dynamics 365 partner” says Steve Georgiou, Business Manager at Xpedition. “We are looking forward to working with the team to implement a fully integrated financial management solution that will unlock increased productivity, efficiencies and scalability across the organisation.”
