Business Journey
“We had a complex integration requirement so it meant that Ogg was involved closely with our in-house application team as well as our finance team. We had a project manager, seconded from Finance, as well as a business team, including the COO, that meet on a weekly basis to define and track tasks and process.
“Ogg were responsible for the initial set-up, helping the integration team, and guiding us through the data conversion as well as setting up reports and NetSuite scripts.  We had a good experience.
“We found the post-go-live support to be particularly good with very thorough explanations and timely responses.  Ogg had resources based in Europe who also helped out with our European finance team which was great.  Ogg, was always available and provided clear direction.”
-David Ingram, Straker Translations
Why did Straker Translations choose NetSuite?
The more Straker  went through the options and  and thought about what their business requirements were, it really came down to NetSuite.
NetSuite has a strong presence in technology companies; the relatively seamless bi-annual updates, the strong consolidation functionality, and the revenue recognition ability.
“The presence and tax compliance functionality it has was also important for us, with entities in 9 countries.”
“Ogg were
brought in to solve some issues we were having and I was impressed
with their breadth of knowledge and ability to think through the issues
to arrive at practical solutions. Their background in accounting was
also very handy...”

David Ingram, Straker Translations
Business Challenges
Tax compliance was hard to keep track of.
Lack of revenue recognition ability.
System was struggling to handle multi-currency consolidation.
Reporting Issues due to the international scale of the business.
Automation of some of the more mundane processes.
Outgrew the current ERP Service and needed a more integrated platform.
“We were using Xero, which while simple to use was problematic with running 16 entities, particularly around reporting, consolidation, and controls.”
David Ingram, Straker Translations
