The problem: A growing business, held back by small business processes

After many years of organic growth complimented by key acquisitions,  the FVS business has grown to 250 employees and a $50 million turnover; increasing demand for centralisation of data across its business divisions and digitising its paper-based processes.

Limited capability to provide its branch or senior managers with accurate, relevant reporting, and with finance staff struggling with manual processes, the finance team were lacking the capability to keep pace with the financial reporting demands of a rapidly expanding business.

The solution

  • Invoice-level detail enables finance to share debtor information with branch managers, to help manage collections and customer relations more effectively.
  • Combining Microsoft Power BI and Wiise AI-powered analytics has sped-up monthly P&L reporting by approximately 5 days per month.
  • Vendor invoice delegations, routing and approvals can be easily managed
  • Digitised payroll processes have eliminated manual data-entry – saving up to 25% of finance team time.
  • Utilising Power BI analytics to interpret FireMate  work hours with timesheet data from Wiise payroll, FVS will be able to better measure utilisation of its field technicians.

The payoff


With instant, accurate, multi-dimensional reporting, FVS finance team has become the ‘eyes’ of the business, delivering the data senior management need to make strategic decisions.


Digitising the end-to-end finance function, replacing paper payroll processes with a mobile self-service app and using Power BI analytics has reduced the  monthly reporting cycle by approximately 5 working days.


By creating identical, uniform accounting structures across all its divisions, FVS is now better positioned to ‘bolt on’ new businesses and provide a single source of reporting for the entire business.

“Without Wiise, we wouldn’t have been able to continue to grow. It’s transformed the business and there are still a lot of capabilities that we haven't utilised yet.”

Cameron Rollason, CFO at FVS
