Case Study: Unify interactions using GCON4 MFL

The Trust has multiple systems feeding data and transactions into Unit4 Business World, or systems which provide data for manual input into Unit4 Business World.

The CHARITY:

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. The main aims of the Trust are the protection and restoration of ancient woodland and the creation of new native woodland across the UK.  

The Trust owns over 1200 sites. It has an ambitious strategy to fight for no more loss of ancient woodland and to plant over 64 million trees in the next ten years.

The CHALLENGES:

The Trust has multiple systems feeding data and transactions into Unit4 Business World, or systems which provide data for manual input into Unit4 Business World.  As happens with these things, different processes developed over time for each interaction, either electronic or physical.  But the Business World Systems Team at the Trust saw a way to unify these interactions using GCON4 MFL, and automating more processes saving staff time.

The RESULTS:

GCON4 MFL will be the most common way transactions from external systems get into Unit4 Business World, transforming the Trusts’ multi-system interactions, reducing errors and streamlining processes.  Having a consistent method of automatically importing data, means that the maintenance is simplified for all these imports. Changes or improvements can be applied more easily across all import processes.

We are extremely pleased with the GCON4 MFL software.   It has meant that many disparate processes have been streamlined and unified, saving staff time and effort as well as reducing errors.
