Hastings Direct counts on Aurum Solutions for bank reconciliation

7 December 2011

• Insurance broker Hastings Direct has chosen Aurum Solutions’ GroupIT for bank reconciliation

• GroupIT allows Hastings Direct to control reconciliation during strong business growth

• Hastings Direct benefits from increased clarity and effectiveness


Hastings Insurance Services has selected Aurum Solutions’ GroupIT application for its centralised, multi-account, bank reconciliation requirements. Hastings Direct is the main brand for Hastings Insurance Services Limited, providing private car, van, motorbike and home insurance.

Strong growth in Hastings Direct’s customer base was putting its previous reconciliation system in use under severe strain. Hastings Direct chose to install GroupIT to cope with the increased reconciliation workflow across its whole business.

Aurum Solutions’ GroupIT is a powerful and flexible multi-user software application. It is easily configured to allow different reconciliation processes to be managed within a single central database.

“It’s really clear to me that we needed a system to cope with the growth of the business and from where we are today, I’d say we’ve definitely found it,” says Sue Baverstock, reconciliation and controls manager, Hastings Direct. “The situation is so much clearer now, I have an instant picture across our multiple accounts and of the team’s reconciliation results. GroupIT is quick to use and gives reassurance that we’re performing well” adds Sue.

Aurum Solutions’ Sales Director Steve O’Hehir says: “We are very proud and honoured to have Hastings Direct as a client. This is another testing requirement where GroupIT made a difference from day one; we’re delighted to support Hastings Direct’s continued growth.”
