Calxa Case Study – Muscular Dystrophy SA

Calxa provides greater transparency. When our full consolidated report is 67 pages it’s very nice to use the Report Bundles to generate that in one click.

The Problem

The NDIS will change the way Muscular Dystrophy South Australia provides its services to its clients. With funding allocations shifting from block based funding to Muscular Dystrophy SA, to individualised funding directly to their client.


Better Board Reports

Finance Manager, Nadelle Manners, needed to provide better reports to her board and managers – both for better decision-making and to improve transparency in the organisation. The previous spreadsheets the organisation used to produce budgets were complex and unwieldy and there were limitations on the information they could extract from them. Lack of an accurate and regular cashflow forecast left the organisation exposed to some risk.



The Solution

Implementing Calxa “certainly made the process a whole lot easier and being able to present a month by month budget has been fabulous”, said Nadelle. Calxa’s reports gave her what she needed at the departmental level. Furthermore, it also provided a consolidated and summarised view for senior management and the board.


Saving Hours

Being able to bundle the reports to produce them in one click not only saves hours every month but enables her to provide the right level of detail for each audience.
