Ribby Hall Village is a five-star holiday village set in over 130 acres in Wrea Green, Lancashire.

Ribby Hall Village went live with Xledger in October 2018, so we caught up with Graham Wilkinson, Senior Manager for Finance and IT, who talked us through the results almost three years on.

The challenge

As a destination with multiple and shared offerings for various customer types, Ribby Hall Village has multiple revenue streams and cost centres. As Graham explained, “We’re a complicated business with lots of different elements, and as the old finance system required different bolt-ons to support each of these elements, it was getting very expensive for little gain. We had to use different systems for different things in the same process – to get it to work properly was complicated.”

Ribby Hall Village needed a system that could handle their complex processes in one place, with powerful modules and integration tools.

The solution

  • Powerful automation of processes to improve efficiency
  • Variety of modules ranging from invoices to assets handled in-system
  • Real-time dashboards and reports that provide complete visibility into the company’s financial health
  • Multi-dimensional reporting tools with the ability to interrogate data down to a transactional level
  • Modern finance software that seamlessly supports custom integrations.

Why was Xledger the right fit? Graham Wilkinson, Senior Manager – Finance and IT

What attracted us to Xledger was the integration of all processes in a singular system, accessed by everyone. With our previous system, technology such as OCR for reading invoices would have been an extra sum. By the time we’d have implemented all the add-ons, it would have been the same cost as Xledger.

The other draw was Xledger’s automation – the automated bank downloads into the system, the opportunities for automatic postings and so on. With the old system, we had to import from the bank manually.

Xledger was clearly ahead of the curve, and it made more sense to move to a true cloud system instead of moving onto the cloud version of our current software. The other systems that we were looking at weren’t true cloud software either, plus we found we could configure Xledger the way we wanted.”
