How Centrisys/CNP Overcame the Inefficiencies in Their Expense Management System
Centrisys, now Centrisys/CNP, has emerged at the forefront of wastewater separation technology, becoming an industry leader as it evolved into designing, engineering, and building decanter equipment for sludge dewatering and thickening throughout the U.S. and all over the world. It has provided centrifuge equipment repair and maintenance since 1987.
Centrisys leverages its technical experience and industry know-how in creating innovative solutions to tackle the toughest challenges in the industry. In 2014, it launched CNP-Technology Water and Biosolids Corporation to design and supply systems for nutrient recovery and sludge optimization. Together, Centrisys/CNP systematically expands its service offerings to include a range of innovative resource recovery and process intensification technologies.
THE PROBLEM: Overcoming the Challenges of Spreadsheet-Based Expense Management
Centrisys aimed to improve their finance department by implementing an expense management solution that would streamline their process and replace their outdated manual system.
Their current system based on a manual, paper-based process was time-consuming, error-prone, and lacked visibility, which led to challenges in the accounting process. With a new solution, Centrisys wanted to consolidate data, provide customized reporting capabilities, and improve end-to-end process efficiencies. This would align with their efforts to diversify their offerings and expand their national and global reach. Ultimately, the new expense management solution would enable Centrisys to better manage their expenses and drive growth.
THE SOLUTION: Transforming Centrisys’ Expense Management System with Gorilla Expense
Centrisys chose Gorilla Expense to transform its expense management system to meet the organization’s ever-growing needs. Although Centrisys considered other options, Gorilla Expense’s integration with NAV was one of the main reasons that sealed the deal.
In addition, the app itself is intuitive and involves a flat learning curve. Integration with NAV has been seamless, which has made life easier for both 150+ employees and the finance department. Credit card reconciliation with Gorilla Expense has also been hassle-free. Managers can now see where claims are in terms of approvals, thanks to the electronic and centralized audit trail, and users have more control over the information they want to see or monitor. As a result, expense reporting and claims are now much easier, with less risk of human error.
“The integration with NAV has been excellent and seamless. The users are overall very happy with both web and mobile apps.” – James Andresen, CIO Centrisys/CNP
Since partnering with Gorilla Expense in 2016, Centrisys has seen an improvement in its expense reporting processes. Gorilla Expense’s transformed and updated expense management solution has enabled Centrisys to increase productivity and reduce time and operational costs.
Prior to Gorilla Expense, the process was tedious and inefficient, with limited reporting capabilities. The partnership has enabled Centrisys’ employees to concentrate on their core competencies, which has helped the company grow. Even after 7+ years, Gorilla Expense has been able to keep up with the company’s ever-expanding operational footprint, allowing it to perform its job efficiently.
