Queensland Airports Limited’s Challenges

Queensland Airports Limited struggled with a mostly manual month-end reconciliation process. To create more efficiency, they knew they needed to reduce the amount of manual tasks by eliminating their use of spreadsheets and automating their reconciliation process.

Additionally, Queensland Airports Limited needed a cloud-based solution to provide a more consolidated, centralized view of their reconciliations, as well as increase the speed and accuracy of their overall process and exception identification.

They chose two solutions: Adra Balancer, for their reconciliations, and Adra Task Manager, to easily and effectively manage the overall process and its performers. The implementation moved quickly, and the training was simple for the users to understand. The software was available and ready for users to utilize within hours.

The Return on Investment (ROI)

Queensland Airports Limited has seen a high ROI yield from their Adra solutions. They have greater visibility and governance over the entire process and its members. The reconciliation software auto-reconciles accounts, flagging exceptions for the team to review, and assigns risk factors to each account.

Additionally, the organization has been able to leverage the solutions for external auditing. Their auditors have read-only access to the platform and have stated its easily understood and easily used for their audit purposes.
