Acorn Life

Modernising Financial Systems with Business Central.


A leading provider of Life Insurance Products and Services, Acorn Life has been a name synonymous with Pensions, Insurance, Savings, and Investments since it first opened its doors in 1989. Throughout its history, the company has retained a strong focus on quality service, quality products and quality performance, with their customers firmly at the heart of everything they do.

As part of this focus and to ensure continued business improvement, Acorn Life‘s business strategy focuses on providing financial services for the 21st century. Central to realising this strategic objective was the shift from on-premise systems to the cloud to support the utilization of modern IT solutions across the business.

To help realise this objective, Acorn Life partnered with Storm Technology to implement a cloud-based ERP solution Business Central, to replace its legacy accounting software. Acorn Life also took this opportunity to focus on transforming existing business with the addition of Continia Document Capture to streamline invoicing.

The adoption of Business Central and Conitina Document Capture has helped Acorn Life modernise its finance function with a future-proof system and deliver important benefits such as easier access to real-time data insights, centralised data storage and streamlined reporting.

“Business Central has been a game changer when it comes to how we interpret and process financial data. With the legacy software, you really didn’t know what was happening until after month end was completed, whereas now both the finance team and senior management can view live data as and when they need, with even greater flexibility in terms of reporting views and formats.”

Nuala O'Riordan, Finance Manager, Acorn Life

"When reviewing the different options available Business Central seemed like one of the better options, with its native integration to the Microsoft technology stack one of the main reasons we picked it over the likes of say something like Sage."

John Fogarty, Head of Finance, Acorn Life
