Global recruitment specialist PageGroup selects NetSuite OneWorld to manage its finances globally

FTSE 250 Company Replacing Multiple Instances of Unit4 Coda and Microsoft Dynamics AX with NetSuite Cloud ERP

NETSUITE SUITEWORLD, SAN JOSE, Calif.—May 18, 2016—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that the worldwide specialist professional recruitment company PageGroup, trading under the brands of Michael Page, Page Personnel and Page Executive, has selected NetSuite OneWorld to help transform its global financial operations. PageGroup will work with systems integrator RSM UK to replace multiple instances of Unit4 Coda, and a separate instance of Microsoft Dynamics AX, with NetSuite OneWorld. This will allow PageGroup to better manage mission critical business processes including accounting; global financial consolidation; reporting; budgeting and analytics; multi-currency management for 30 different currencies; and multi-subsidiary management for 90 different legal entities across 35 countries – all within one single system.

Founded in London in 1976 as a placement agency for qualified accountants, PageGroup has delivered 40 years of strong organic growth and is now a FTSE 250 company with more than 5,800 employees and annual revenues of over £1 billion. As it has grown, PageGroup's on-premise financial systems have grown with it, ultimately leaving the company with a mixture of ERP solutions and associated systems and processes. PageGroup has recognised that there is a strong opportunity to migrate to a single cloud-based solution that will allow the definition and delivery of more efficient and consistent global finance processes, and the provision of better and faster management information.

Why NetSuite OneWorld?
After a comprehensive evaluation that included solutions from Microsoft, Unit4, SAP, and others, PageGroup selected NetSuite OneWorld for:

  • A single cloud solution with a broad range of global financial capabilities, including support for 190 currencies, 20 languages and automated tax compliance in over 100 countries, to run complex and mission-critical business processes across its head office and its business units spread across the globe.
  • Global financial consolidation with real-time visibility across all PageGroup's 90 legal entities with one single unified financial system of record and financial reporting across the entire enterprise.
  • NetSuite's cloud infrastructure aligns with PageGroup's efforts to move toward cloud-based applications, removing the need to support and maintain on-premise software and opening the opportunity to expand a shared services model.
  • An intuitive and modern user interface that can reduce training time and help PageGroup's employees to operate more efficiently and maximise their potential.
  • Rapid deployment that can enable PageGroup to get up and running with NetSuite OneWorld across the globe, speeding up time to value.
  • The agility, scalability and flexibility needed to help enter new markets, expand operations and grow revenue.

“We're intent on simplifying and modernizing our global financial system to better support our finance team, our recruitment consultants, and ultimately our clients and candidates,” said Mark Hearn, Group Services Finance Director at PageGroup. “NetSuite OneWorld offers a modern and comprehensive solution that we anticipate can be quickly and easily rolled out to all our offices around the world.”

“Large global enterprises like PageGroup are seeing the huge advantages that NetSuite cloud ERP can provide,” said Mark Woodhams, SVP and Managing Director of NetSuite EMEA. “We welcome PageGroup to our customer ranks and look forward to helping to support their future growth.”

The project to implement NetSuite across PageGroup's global finance operations will be led and run by RSM UK, a leading international professional services firm and NetSuite system integrator. Chris Knowles, RSM UK's Head of Technology Consulting said, "We are delighted to have been appointed by PageGroup to lead the project to implement NetSuite as the standard finance platform across their organisation. For PageGroup this is an opportunity to leverage NetSuite's integrated cloud ERP platform to improve core finance processes, generate efficiencies and provide significantly better management reporting. We look forward to using our deep NetSuite and finance improvement skills to help them achieve this."
