“When I arrived, not long after an acquisition, we had three finance systems, two or three of everything. We wanted to consolidate everything into a single business. NetSuite lets us do that.” Matt Tate, CTO, CLEAN

Quality Service, Quality Linen Fosters Growth

Victorian-era laundry goes high tech
Although its history is as a Victorian-era domestic laundry, CLEAN has been eager to embrace new technologies, using RFID to count inventory and building a new laundry facility in Slough that is understood to be the largest, most efficient and greenest in the UK.
Cleaning up dirty data
A lengthy history of acquisitions, the most recent being in 2015, left CLEAN with myriad systems, including three Goldmine instances for different customers, three versions of Access Dimensions for financials, multiple instances of Sage for three payrolls and HR.
Lean operations, customer portal pay off
Implementing NetSuite for financials, customer service and purchase orders, CLEAN has streamlined operations, running leaner while being able to offer a customer portal that helps to automate the processing of roughly 8,000 invoices per month. With NetSuite, month-end close has gone from 11 days to four.
Expansion, increased efficiency next up
Since streamlining operations following a major acquisition, CLEAN is now focused on growth, innovation, and delivering efficiency and speed to its customers. The company plans to continue building high-tech laundries while it continues to expand.
