The National Express group has awarded a £2m contract for a complete overhaul of its financial IT systems to OpenAccounts.
The deal revolves around bringing together the group’s numerous disparate systems, as it has traditionally run its train, buses and coach operations separately.
The OpenAccounts software will be hosted by outsourced services provider Netstore, who will look after the financial management system as part of a five-year managed service agreement.
And in 2004 it began operating the ‘One’ train franchise, the railway company serving the east of England, which integrated Anglia Railways, Great Eastern, West Anglia and Stansted Express.
National Express introduced the new financial system across these previously separate companies, which had been running SAP, Coda and Navision applications.
