A Family Fun Gaming Company

A solution that would continue to support the organisation in years to come

Outright Games went live with a solution that provided them with a significant improvement

Outright Games is a family fun company, located in Hampshire, that creates high-quality, family-friendly video games in UK, Spain and US.

They work with some of the biggest names in entertainment like Sony Pictures, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to bring their stories and characters to life.

The Challenge

Outright Games found their incumbent accounting software (Quickbooks) was struggling to support their growth plans.

The company needed to improve the financial reporting for their organisation especially in relation to cash flow and group consolidation across their 3 entities.

They also had some key milestones through the year that meant they needed a new finance system in place as soon as possible.

Requirements and Considerations 

  • Improved Reporting and Analysis
  • Group Consolidation
  • Cash Flow Forecasting
  • Multi-company
  • Multi-Currency
  • Improve automation of admin tasks
  • Fast implementation (6 weeks)
  • Modernise Finance Function
  • A solution that would continue to support the organisation in years to come

On schedule and within only 6 weeks, with a significant improvement in the way they could interpret their data.

Goals Achieved Included:

  • On schedule ‘Go Live’ despite implementation crossing over coronavirus lockdown
  • Improved reporting including advanced real-time dashboards
  • Consolidated financial reporting across all 3 entities
  • Optical Character Recognition to streamline the entry of supplier invoices

Our recent growth had exposed the limitations of our previous system, especially when it came to reporting and automating tasks. We knew that we required a system that would not only facilitate our reporting needs now, but also adapt to any change in our requirements in the future. We have also been delighted with how quickly the new system has been implemented and feel confident that we have made the right decision choosing Aqilla
