Arntzen de Besche has in recent years, been on a digitalization journey, which has involved both the way they work with their clients and the way they work internally. They needed to modernize their ERP system and also the different systems and integrations linked to this. Their existing ERP system lacked satisfactory analysis and reporting capabilities made specifically for their company. Among other things, Arntzen de Besche needed to:
To integrate and consolidate data from Arntzen de Besche’s new ERP (an updated version of Deltek Maconomy) Junu’s standard integrations and Data Warehouse was chosen to ensure an enterprise-level and future-proof Data Platform. With base in Junu’s standard reporting package for Law Firms, Junu and Arntzen de Besche customized the reporting packages to the exact needs of Arntzen de Besche’s users. By doing so, it was possible to ensure that the different user groups had access to reports specifical designed to support their daily decision-making.
The Junu solution for Arntzen de Besche was developed simultaneously with the modernization of their ERP system. After go-live, the reports were adjusted as new reporting needs were indicated by the report’s users, who, at this point, primarily are the group leaders and management in the administration. All technology choices in the project were based on best-of-breed Junu and Microsoft software (taking base in Azure and Power BI). All the tech-related decisions were made in close dialogue and collaboration with the IT and Finance teams from Arntzen de Besche.
All in all Arntzen de Besche went live with a customized and updated data platform solution based on 6 different dashboards supporting all user groups. As a start, Arntzen de Besche has introduced 24 users to their new solution, these counting group leaders and management in the administration. When the implementation is fully completed, the estimated number of users is approximately 200.
The results of implementing the Junu solution are, according to Geir Taule Dotzler, CFO at Arntzen de Besche:
