grey-bruce1.jpgThe Grey Bruce Health Unit, an Ontario based public health agency, made the strategic decision to choose Sparkrock as its new partner in implementing an integrated finance and HR solution. The Health Unit had been increasingly taxed with managing disparate systems. The team knew that an integrated system offers a number of advantages and decided to pursue an integrated and automatic technology strategy when going to market for a new solution.

While the Health Unit considered a number of vendors, the team chose the Sparkrock solution over others because it offered the best value with the highest degree of functional fit. Since Sparkrock ERP is designed for the nonprofit and public sector, it offers the right fit for the Grey Bruce Health Unit giving them a lower risk implementation while they benefit from greater efficiencies across their processes and managing their data. 

The other main consideration for the Health Unit was usability. As an organization that already leverages Microsoft technologies, they appreciated the familiar look and feel of Sparkrock NAV as well as its deep integration with tools like Excel. This kind of familiarity will help staff learn the system more quickly and feel comfortable working in the application.  

As part of this integrated implementation, the customer will also move to a paperless environment which stays true to their goal to reduce unnecessary paper throughout their organization. 

We are looking forward to working with the Grey Bruce Health Unit and are thrilled that they will join our client community, which also includes the North Bay Parry Sound Health Unit and a number of Ontario’s District Social Services Administration Boards. We value our long-term partnerships with the organizations we support and look forward to continuing to meet their long-term needs.
