Helping SAS Harness Cloud ERP Technology


David Biggins, the Financial Director at SAS Global Communications (SAS) was keen to harness the potential of cloud-based ERP technology to optimise key areas of the business’ finance and accounting function.

Established in 1989, SAS monitors tens of thousands of devices across 65 countries and provides Wide Area Network (WAN) management services for organisations such as Metro Bank, Euro Car Parts, Sir Robert McAlpine, Princes Foods and the Racing Point F1 team.

Its ERP and management platform includes real-time pricing, ordering, provisioning, inventory, CRM, live ticketing, monitoring, reporting and billing functions.

The business needed a powerful and secure ERP solution that could transform disparate legacy systems, without risking disruption to its global operations.

David and his department were keen to ensure both clients and internal teams benefit from the workflow optimisation, data visibility and mobile accessibility cloud-based ERP provides.

The initial stage of SAS’ three-phase digital transformation initiative was completed by the company’s in-house team. The project won the ‘SME Solution of the Year’ category at IT Europa’s European IT and Software Excellence awards.


Tisski were selected as the ideal partner to build on the successful platform created by the first phase of transformation.

Our specialist financial technology consultants collaborated closely with SAS to:

  • Deliver a custom configuration of Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (Nav), that integrates effectively with the existing operational environment and technology ecosystem.
  • Strengthen financial analytics, visualisation and reporting functions to aid operational and strategic decision-making.
  • Create a secure self-service portal to provide SAS clients with greater flexibility, insight and control over information.
  • Develop lean workflows and automated processes to increase efficiency and reduce the administrative burden on internal teams.
  • Increase accessibility and facilitate collaboration in key areas of the finance function.
  • Key benefits

    This phase of transformation was delivered in time and within budget and has helped SAS to:

  • Further enhance client relationships by providing more visibility and control over key financial information.
  • Boost efficiencies by minimising manual data searches and input requirements.
  • Support productivity by enabling clients and employees to access key information and collaborate from any location, on any device and at any time.
  • Establish a strategic Modern Finance platform that will enable the business to harness machine learning, AI and predictive analytics to facilitate the business’ ongoing transformation programme and underpin its future success.
