VendEase

VendEase is a London-based vending business offering predominantly non-food vending solutions to a variety of markets, with machines acting like mini-shops.  Co-founders and owners Jonny Holmes and Dave Berman have invested in telemetry, to ensure their machines send sales data over the GPRS network, which provides significant operational efficiencies.  Their customers are extremely satisfied with the service, commenting that the machines are always stocked, thanks to the sales data systems in place.

Jonny and Dave met Sue Higgins, MD of Inspira through the Business Growth programme at Cranfield School of Management, two years ago.  At that time, five years into their business, they were doing all the finances themselves and realised they needed another solution to allow them time to focus on the growth and development of the business.

Jonny is CIMA-qualified so more than able to produce management accounts, cashflow forecasts and of course handle the daily bookkeeping, but his time and efforts needed to be focused elsewhere, so VendEase hired Inspira to manage their finances.  An Inspira bookkeeper visits VendEase’s office once a week and an Inspira management accountant carries out all the month-end checks, sales reconciliations and produces monthly accounts remotely each month.  Inspira have put into place best-practice systems and have formalised VendEase’s processes, giving Jonny and Dave more confidence in the finances and more time to analyse the detail.

‘Our accounts are in better shape now and we have better control and visibility of all our prepayments and accruals,’ says Jonny.  ‘Our finances are well-structured and we are really pleased with the professional format they take, enabling us to handover clear, well-presented accounts to our accountants at the year-end.’

‘Although Inspira is an outsourced service provider, they are very much part of the VendEase team and we benefit from their professional expertise.’
