Derby County, the Football League Championship club with Premier League ambitions, has turned to award-winning cloud business solutions provider Eureka Solutions for a product which scores every time.
The club, which plays at the 33,010 capacity iPro Stadium at Pride Park in Derby, asked Eureka Solutions to implement NetSuite ERP, the world's most deployed cloud enterprise resource planning solution.
It is the latest major contract win for Eureka Solutions, which recently moved its 46 staff to a brand new purpose built HQ in East Kilbride, Scotland, following a significant increase in growth in recent years.
The NetSuite implementation will also underpin the infrastructure for growth at Derby County, which was a founder member of the Football League in 1888 and is one of, if not the, largest football clubs outside of the top division.
The club has more than 24,000 season ticket holders, with an average match attendance of 29,863. It recently invested in its new purpose-built stadium and a state of the art academy and training centre. Derby County is the first football club to implement NetSuite, further demonstrating its innovative thinking, future planning and placing it as a club that has tomorrow firmly in sight.
Gillian Livingstone, Managing Director of Eureka Solutions said: "We are delighted to have been able to help Derby County with NetSuite which currently is deployed in more than 30,000 organisations across more than 160 countries.
"NetSuite delivers the proven, comprehensive financial management capabilities required to grow a changing, complex business. It takes businesses beyond traditional accounting software by streamlining operations across the entire organisation."
Derby County has acquired a package which features a range of products including, Advanced Financials, Fixed Assets, Advance Procurement, NetSuite OneWorld, along with Eureka Solution’s own integration product Data Exchange for NetSuite and Webiplex’s Docupeak.
It will replace multiple outdated single purpose operating systems with differing purposes with a forward thinking, cloud-based solution that brings all elements together and can be integrated with existing, industry specific solutions.
Derby County Financial Controller Thomas Bonser, said: "We reviewed several suppliers and chose Eureka Solutions. We met with the sales team and it immediately was clear that we could work comfortably with them.
"Eureka Solutions demonstrated that they could implement a system which would work for our whole operation, resulting in us going ahead with a 40 user solution.”
Although based in Scotland, Eureka Solutions has a significant customer base throughout the UK, with many more projects in the pipeline which span across a wide range of industries and solutions.
