Who is Templafy?

We are pleased today to present Templafy, a Danish head-quartered fast-growing B2B Software-as-a-Service company, helping over 2 million users improve productivity, branding, and compliance across business documents, presentations, and emails.

Templafy has just been announced to be ranked as one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe according to the March 2021 issue of the Financial Times. 

Templafy is officially the company with the fastest growth in Denmark, the 42nd fastest in the tech industry and is listed 122nd in the general rankings in Europe.

Novutech implemented NetSuite Financials First back in April 2020, after a 5-month successful implementation project.

Templafy’s content enablement platform aligns workforces and enables employees to effortlessly create on-brand, high-performing business content faster. 

Founded in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2014, Templafy’s team leveraged more than 15 years of experience in template management and document automation to develop a cloud service solution now used by enterprise customers from all industries. 

Templafy’s offices are currently located in New York, Copenhagen, Berlin, Eindhoven and Sydney, representing 40+ nationalities, and the Templafy team serves customers all over the world.

The Reason for Change

In connection with the start of the scaling phase at Templafy, it was essential to get all subsidiaries onto a scalable ERP platform. After thorough research, there was a clear picture that NetSuite had all the functionalities to build necessary internal controls, streamline workflows including easy integration of other software to NetSuite, as well as a very appealing visual and intuitive design. Furthermore, NetSuite as a cloud based solution makes it easy to access the environment from anywhere.

Why choose NetSuite?

Templafy selected NetSuite as their ERP solution for the following reasons:

  • A cloud-based ERP system implemented and deployed globally across all entities.
  • A unified and integrated platform to run all business processes to replace the legacy systems.
  • Scales with the projected exponential growth of business and its needs.
  • Reduces the use of Excel and manually intensive processes within the business.
  • One source of truth.
  • NetSuite offers a full suite of financial modules including multi-taxation, multi-country or powerful financial reporting.
  • Third-party systems integration capabilities.

About the NetSuite Implementation

After a smooth implementation of about 5 months despite challenging times with COVID, Templafy has been now live since April 2020 on NetSuite, with all the Financial Suite, from Finance & Accounting, Consolidation, Revenue Management, Purchasing & Sales as well as Banking automation.

Templafy is able to interface NetSuite and Salesforce CPQ to gain in efficiency and make sure every Salesforce order gets created in NetSuite for billing and revenue recognition purposes allowing a powerful reporting on ARR basis.

With some custom designed approval workflows, custom segmentation, bank reconciliation automation, or cost recognition during the lifecycle of sales contracts, Templafy has greatly sped up day-to-day data entry processes and reporting accuracy.

NetSuite is a really intuitive, flexible and scalable solution, which allows Templafy to grow and scale globally.
We are very pleased with the services provided by Novutech, which really helped us make a quick and thorough implementation of NetSuite. In my opinion, they are not only implementation consultants, but also an important sparring partner, providing advice both during and after the implementation phase, when necessary.“
Niels Østergaard SIMONSEN, Head of Finance

Solar screen internal picture

Founded in 1984 and based in Luxemburg, Solar Screen International S.A. is a film and cover solutions distributor active across all of Europe. Thanks to their film solutions, Solar Screen attempts to increase panes and automotive glass protection, especially by enhancing the glass resistance but also by offering protection from heat, UV and glare.

During the past 5 years, Solar Screen has enjoyed a steady and impressive growth of 20 to 30% every year, and is currently the European leader in the distribution of adhesive films for windows and furniture. 

Netsuite screen dashboard

In order to support this growth, Solar Screen needed a flexible, robust, and above all scalable system capable of supporting business operations from sales and localized accounting to purchasing and warehousing, not only today but for the years to come as well.

Furthermore, as an experienced, innovative, and highly active company quickly expanding both internally and internationally, Solar Screen faced considerable challenges on a daily basis and set out strict and greatly specific requirements that demanded creative tailor-made solutions in order to enhance the standard capabilities of NetSuite and fulfill its expectations.

Advanced dashboarding, exacting reporting, 50+ users, Covid-19, integrations, highly customized processes… The challenges kept piling up but thanks to our flexibility and expertise, we managed to address all these complex topics, and all of that in just 4 months : a record-breaking performance!

Today, we are still working hand-in-hand with Solar Screen’s team in order to improve their NetSuite workflows and help them make the most of their NetSuite environment, and we intend to maintain this fruitful and exciting collaboration in the long run!

A summary of NetSuite’s impact on the business

  • Centralized system with multiple integrations (webshop, Upflow, TranSmart, LMS…)
  • Bank connection
  • Fully customized sales and purchasing flows
  • Advanced Reporting
  • Highly customized dashboards
  • Automated Warehouse Management
  • Fixed Assets Management
  • OCR Billing Management
  • Automated Bank Reconciliation

“The first thing, of course, was that we wanted to minimize the impact on our customers, because it’s a huge change for the company, but we wanted our customers to have a negative impact that is as little as possible, to be able to continue to deliver them every day, not to have to shut down the company for the transition.
The second point that was fundamental was internal adoption. So, very clearly, we had to create a commitment from the teams, and Novutech was fantastic in this role.”
Nicolas DE RIDDER, CEO

“Changing ERP for a business is always a big bang. It’s a project that is exciting and at the same time frightening given the impact on all users, on all processes, and it was super important to find for us a company that shares our values, our DNA, and we have found in Novutech a company which, like us, puts the success of its projects and customer satisfaction first, and, in Novutech, we found interlocutors who wanted to understand our processes, who wanted to help us, who supported us from the start, and who continue to accompany us today with a real common interest in making the system appealing to all users.”

unified post group logo

UnifiedPost Group is a Belgian Fintech company providing cloud-based digital solutions to customers in 23 countries, helping them connect to each other and exchange documents or funds.

In 2018, facing a quick international expansion, UnifiedPost implemented NetSuite as part of their digital development strategy, with the clear objective of tackling the more and more complex issues with which they were confronted and supporting their steady growth.

Last year, UnifiedPost Group reaffirmed its ambition to become the leading cloud-based platform for SME business services by going public, and is now listed on Euronext. This successful IPO marked a decisive milestone in the company’s sustained growth and stated goal of becoming the #1 on the European market.

This year we have started helping UnifiedPost achieve their challenging objectives and developing their NetSuite capabilities by delivering optimization packages and providing continuous support.

From intercompany management to revenue recognition and fixed assets management, no area is overlooked and our expertise certainly comes in handy to design the best optimizations possible to suit the users’ needs and make sure UnifiedPost holds a robust tool that is up to the challenge of sustaining such a rapid and ambitious expansion.

And who says rapid expansion also says constant internal adaptation. This is the secret for a successful, innovative company, and such a company needs a partner that is able to take up the challenge and prove flexible and reliable to help them achieve their goals.

We are extremely proud and grateful to be this partner and to be part of this exciting journey with UnifiedPost Group. We are looking forward to a bright future and a successful partnership.

Unified post and novutech

“The decision to go to NetSuite was taken because we were becoming more and more of an international group. We needed a system that could manage that and that could keep up with the expansion of UnifiedPost and the group to where it is today.”

Laurent MARCELIS, CFO

“At first, we were really looking for an implementation partner that has the same DNA as our company and our group. Next to that of course, it was very important to have sufficient flexibility and expertise on the various domains that we have implemented in NetSuite and we were looking further than the strict client-supplier relationship. We really wanted a partnership, and that’s what we found with Novutech.”

WHO IS ACTITO

We are pleased to announce the successful go-live of the NetSuite SuiteSuccess Financials First at ACTITO, a SaaS marketing automation company founded back in 2000.

ACTITO offers a suite of relationship marketing tools to create a meaningful dialogue with prospects and clients. Thanks to its Relationship Marketing Portal, ACTITO offers the possibility to completely customize the portal with made to measure “apps”.

ACTITO serves large and medium sized companies in various industries such as Automotive, financial, Entertainment or Health.

Actito logo

ACTITO currently has 6 regional offices. Back in June 2019, ACTITO acquired a new company, Smartfocus, which has led them to strengthen their position as European market leader of relationship marketing tools.

THE REASON FOR CHANGE

Historically each entity part of the group was operating on a standalone backoffice and standalone accounting and finance systems.

Therefore, to improve efficiency, controls, timeliness, and the quality of information reporting for management, ACTITO looked to integrate all legacy systems from back-office, CRM, Project Management, Contracting, Revenue Management and Finance & Accounting into 2 consolidated cloud-based solutions, being the integrated duo Zuora and NetSuite.

WHY CHOOSING FOR NETSUITE?

ACTITO selected NetSuite as their ERP solution for the following reasons:

  • A cloud-based ERP system implemented and deployed globally across all entities.
  • A unified and integrated platform to run all business processes to replace the current legacy systems.
  • Scales with the projected exponential growth of business and its needs.
  • Reduces the use of Excel and manually intensive processes within the business.
  • One source of truth.
  • NetSuite offers a full suite of financial modules including multi-taxation, multi-country or powerful financial reporting.
  • Third-party systems integration capabilities.

ABOUT THE NETSUITE IMPLEMENTATION

After a smooth and full remote implementation of about 5 months despite challenging times with COVID, ACTITO has been now live since November 2020 with purchasing and sales and has been able to expand to include Project Management with more than +70 users early January 2021.

“Novutech has been a great partner during this project. Their Project management methodology gives you a clear view on the progress of the activities. Together with their knowledge of NetSuite, they can advise you about how to organise your business processes so that the NetSuite set-up serves them in the most efficient way.”

Brieuc NOEL DE BURLIN, System Project Manager

“Thanks to NetSuite and its ease of use, we were able to transform Actito to an international group from a finance perspective.  Novutech, thanks to its methodology and its knowledge of NetSuite, has been a great partner to achieve this transformation. The gain of productivity was substantial, and I would recommend NetSuite for organizations as it really is a complete software with good standard capabilities along with strong possible customization.  Thanks to NetSuite & Novutech, Actito is now ready to expand its activities worldwide.”
