From a sporting point of view, the UEFA Euro 2016 has left a bitter taste to the Belgian Red Devils. If we look at the organizational side of things though, this event has enabled some big changes within the Belgian Football Association.
Behind the scenes, a major project was settled for several months to provide efficient management tools to the Federation. Michel Wilquet, head of the accounting department, delivers his testimonial on the implementation of Adfinity at the Royal Belgian Football Association.
State-of-the art Accounting software
"Our former accounting software dated from the previous century and so did the features of that solution. It simply didn't offer all the features that we needed anymore. The objective was therefore to implement a brand new accounting software for the EURO 2016. As the largest sport federation of the country and given the growing success of our national teams these past years, our turnover has increased and so has the number of invoices and budgets to treat.", explains Wilquet.
"We wanted to move towards an efficient accounting system offering all the benefits of current technology and coupled with a budget management system. Thanks to the new solution, all our managers can follow the evolution of their budget in real time. This gives us the opportunity to manage financial flows at best and avoid unexpected budgetary overruns at year-end..."
"After a comparison between different players in the sector, we chose Adfinity, which stood out by the user-friendliness of its system, the professional approach of its staff ensuring a perfect support, and a clear roadmap with future adjustments via the updates of the software. In this way, we are assured to always dispose of the advantages of the latest technological developments."
