Onshore Advisor with IMS:
Initially working as Onshore Advisor with IMS Decimal Tony was introduced to clients who faced new challenges within their finance function. Some of the challenges included increased finance costs, outdated finance software, undocumented processes, lack of internal controls, inaccurate and delayed reporting. He has observed how these challenges have an adverse effect on staff morale, in many cases, leading to high staff turnover.
As Onshore Advisor, he was able to meet with clients and help them overcome these challenges. He worked with the onsite team collaboratively to introduce and implement new finance software, which could successfully integrate with their CRM, payroll, or banking software. With Tony’s support, the team at IMS developed and implemented new processes and controls. Many finance related tasks were outsourced which produced immediate cost savings.
He was able to successfully onboard many clients during this time. With the successes, many of these clients have recommended IMS Decimal to other businesses facing similar challenges.
Tony went down memory lane about his journey from being a client to an Onshore Advisor and now Head of Client Services – Accounting and Finance (UK).
Recounting his journey from client to Head of Client Services Tony states ‘it has been amazing’. Since 2015, Tony has traveled to our head office many times. “Words cannot describe how impressive the office facility is with state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and training facilities. Management took time out to explain the vision of the company and its service delivery model. It truly inspired me to witness first-hand the professionalism and hospitality of the staff who deliver services for our clients. I take great enjoyment working with the teams to develop solutions to improve service delivery for all clients.”
IMS takes pride in utilising his past experience and helping clients overcome any financial challenges they experience.

Understanding the challenges that any client faces with their finance function is key to fixing those challenges. Tony’s past experiences as Finance Director ensures that he quickly assesses those difficulties and provides a solution. He can attend a client site and meet with management and staff.
