The challenge

  • ^Brand new collective agreement for the financial sector (hour bank) had to be automated electronically
  • ^Need for accurate overview of project hours as a basis for invoicing
  • ^Change process towards a more customer-centric profile

Success criteria

  • ^Everyone in SDC were to register time and projects
  • ^Implementation in 3 weeks
  • ^A network of super users was a huge advantage, which meant that the HR department did not become a bottleneck
  • ^Transparency in the new management information

Key functionality

  • ^Clear communication: Who is influenced how by the new system, and targeted communication with tailor-made messages and angles
  • ^Selected employees were part of it from the start and served as ambassadors as it was rolled out
  • ^Information meetings for all about the new agreement


  • ^Support for commercialisation
  • ^Great support for the project as it was well prepared and help was available
  • ^Automation by notifications sent to advise managers via email of deviations needing approval
  • ^Modern user interface

Primary results

  • ^Certainty that the payroll and invoicing basis is in place in a timely manner
  • ^Implementation in just 3 weeks with integration to both payroll and ERP systems (Visma payroll solution and Dynamics AX)
  • ^Higher transparency – both for SDC and their customers
