Tasks accomplished

When we started working with the company, we were asked to systematize its internal processes based on specific aspects in the field of IT. As a result, we, together with Genesys management and financial department, managed to implement measures which contributed to the company’s successful development:

  • The company has been entered in the register of accredited IT companies, which enables it to apply statutory benefits: reduced rates of insurance contributions, the ability to employ highly qualified foreign specialists, and the right to be excluded from the established depreciation procedure.
  • Calculations have been performed and documents have been drafted to confirm the company’s eligibility to apply reduced rates of insurance contributions, which has resulted in considerable savings.
  • Internal by-laws regulating the main business processes have been drawn up. The documentation that has been developed makes it possible to mitigate financial, tax and administrative risks.
  • The process under which source data for 1C is obtained to prepare monthly accounts for the Headquarters has been automated. This has enabled the company to reduce labour costs for the process.
  • A data exchange portal has been deployed between Genesys and Acsour which ensures that data is safely stored, and documents are accessed on a continual basis.
