"IDU has interfaced directly with our job costing software and has provided access to our staff who have now taken ownership of their budgets.
The ability to drill down to the financial entries has given a visibility to the actual versus budget results that has been well received by staff at all levels."

"Receiving figures and consolidations in real time means cost centre managers spend more time looking at numbers that are relevant, and less time trying to manage the process and consolidate figures.
IDU is simple and easy to use, even for non-financially astute users."

“I have never encountered another service provider who instils such confidence in the understanding, knowledge and skill of every member of their team,” says Stephenson.
"I knew at every step that I would get the same impeccable service no matter who I spoke to – and the fact that I had access to anybody and everybody across all departments of the IDU business only strengthened that confidence."
"I’ve been very impressed at how IDU has not only made our whole budgeting process much simpler and speedier, but also meant that our management team have a real understanding of their budgets and take proper ownership of their financial performance on an on-going basis."
Before IDU budgets were done on an Excel Spreadsheet. "With 4 Companies, multiple divisions and about 9 branches, it was a constant nightmare to keep everything in sync. Spreadsheet were sent to branch managers to modify. These spreadsheets were then sent back for finance to incorporate it into the main spreadsheet, Sometimes there were multiple versions of the spreadsheets and just maintaining the main spreadsheet was a challenge." - CIO
