Baker Tilly Mooney Moore get their post back on track
Baker Tilly Mooney Moore is a leading provider of tailored accountancy and advisory services. As part of their professional services, based in Belfast, they support companies through formal insolvency and restructures.
Northern Ireland has slightly different ‘rules’ than England and Wales when it comes to delivering insolvency documents. All paperwork about an insolvency case must be delivered by post and cannot be delivered electronically by email. Timing is critical as well. Creditors must have at least 14 days’ notice, so if a letter is just one day late, legislation is broken, and consequences ensue.
Feeling the pain
Claire Mateer, the restructuring and insolvency department manager, and her team felt the pain before the COVID-19 outbreak.
As she says: “Even sending out just 100 creditor letters could take 2-3 hours, with more extensive lists taking days. My issues were always based around time and cost and meeting regulations.”
“The pandemic meant everyone moved to working at home but still mail needed to go out – on time and in large volumes. To add just another difficulty level, we had to use different envelopes for different locations, and we used pre-paid postal envelopes. Some colleagues were able to get to a Post Office and others not. Suddenly, the logistics became not just immense but unworkable. So, we started our search for an alternative and thankfully hit on Postworks.”
The team were searching for a service that was convenient, accessible from outside of the office, was guaranteed to offer timely delivery and would reduce their time. Postworks hit the mark perfectly!
Claire says the team chose Postworks because of its ease of use, solid recommendations from other users and the ability to integrate with other systems if needed. Competitive ongoing pricing, a flexible contract commitment and no up-front cost were the final deal-makers.
Life just got easier
Easy to use and much simpler to operate than their past manual system, the team’s workload was reduced considerably and with the comprehensive reporting on offer, claiming costs back was a doddle!
Being accountants, Baker Tilly Mooney Moore has an innate ability to make the best moves when it comes to saving time and, therefore, money. Claire says that the time savings they have noticed since using Postworks, are massive. Postworks gave the insolvency team the ability to send out posts and reports simply and quickly whilst working remotely.
The team are delighted with the system and have adopted it quickly without issues.
Would she recommend Postworks to other companies? Without hesitation! She says, “Go for it! There are no drawbacks to using Postworks, and it has definitely improved things for us.”
“It’s so simple to use.”
