What Our Solution provided
Ruth McCooey – Head of Finance
‘’We originally chose Monpellier as they were a locally approved Opera support team. In addition to this I had also worked previously with some of the team members and had no hesitation in recommending their capabilities to my current employer.
The best thing about working with Monpellier is that the staff are always helpful and quick at resolving issues. They are so much more than a voice at the end of a phone. Monpellier are always willing to visit us, provide training over the phone or onsite as well as continuously giving us useful help with our finance functions.’’
Monpellier are always working with our clients to ensure continuous advancement. This often involves getting to understand our clients processes so that we can make their lives easier and more efficient.
In the case of The Outward Bound Trust Monpellier went on site to conduct a half a day session to see the staff and talk through how they currently use their Opera system. Tracey commented that, ‘’whether wrestling with a way of reporting something or a better way of doing a process the Monpellier team will often come up with an easy solution.’’
Many companies are surprised when shown the endless capabilities and integration of Opera 3 and The Outward Bound Trust were no different. Tracy explained that, ‘’the functionality of Opera and the ability to manipulate the data from it has developed in leaps and bounds in the last few years, extracting data into excel and copying and pasting from the program has never been easier.’’
