    "IDU has interfaced directly with our job costing software and has provided access to our staff who have now taken ownership of their budgets.

    "Receiving figures and consolidations in real time means cost centre managers spend more time looking at numbers that are relevant, and less time trying to manage the process and consolidate figures. IDU is simple and easy to use, even for non-financially astute users."

    Before IDU budgets were done on an Excel Spreadsheet. "With 4 Companies, multiple divisions and about 9 branches, it was a constant nightmare to keep everything in sync. Spreadsheet were sent to branch managers to modify. These spreadsheets were then sent back for finance to incorporate it into the main spreadsheet, Sometimes there were multiple versions of the spreadsheets and just maintaining the main spreadsheet was a challenge." - CIO
