Premier League saves cash with electronic document management

The football Premier League is saving cash with a new electronic system to improve document management.

The football Premier League is saving cash with a new electronic system to improve document management.

The electronic document management platform, from Easy Software, was recommended as way of coping with a pending office move looming.

Simon Thunder, head of IT at the Premier League, said: “We were aware of the benefits of reducing paper storage not only because of the physical space that it takes up and the costs per square foot, but also the implication of loss through fire or flood or some other disaster.

“The finance department was an obvious starting point as we were storing thousands of supplier invoices, sales invoices, and expenses sheets and these were predominantly on paper. Simply storing these electronically and linking them to our finance and expense management system would make for significant cost and efficiency savings,” he said. 

The Premier League sought the advice of Easy partner Touchstone Group, a software supplier  for business and financial management, who had supplied its Microsoft Dynamics GP accounts system.
