National Galleries of Scotland Paint Healthy Financial Picture with Microsoft Dynamics GP from Touchstone Group


Touchstone Group, the leading AIM listed IT Consultancy and software solutions provider has been chosen to implement Microsoft Dynamics GP to the National Galleries of Scotland. The Galleries look after one of the world’s finest collections of Western art ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day including the National Collection of Scottish Art. Every year, over a million visitors both from Scotland and the rest of the world pass through the various Galleries sited in Edinburgh.

As a major public resource and a registered charity funded by the Scottish Executive, the need for effective and accountable financial control is significant and when the Galleries needed to update their financial control systems they undertook a comprehensive review of which applications would best meet their requirements.

The National Galleries of Scotland chose Touchstone Group to implement Microsoft Dynamics GP as it offered improved consolidation, management reporting and greater self service efficiency for users. The National Galleries of Scotland turned to Touchstone Group because of their expertise in Microsoft financials and their experience in supplying financial technology to major organisations.

Commenting on the choice Lynn Banks, Head of Finance, National Galleries of Scotland, noted, “There are formal procurement procedures for public bodies and the specific needs of the Galleries to take into account when choosing a finance system. Microsoft Dynamics GP met our requirements and we felt it would make an especially positive impact on our management reporting and come truly into its own when it came to consolidating the accounts for the Galleries. We were reassured too that Touchstone were capable of matching the technology to our unique needs.”

Adrian McNay, Executive Director, Touchstone Group, commented; “The National Galleries of Scotland have to meet the highest standards of financial control across a number of locations and in an environment that brings together government funding, not-for-profit charitable status and public access to some of the world’s greatest fine art. Microsoft Dynamics GP has no problem in adapting to this unique blend of needs and requirements and we are delighted that they have chosen to work with Touchstone on this exciting project.”
