Retain case study

Boosting operational cost-efficiency for Mazars Qatar

The challenge

Mazars Qatar connects leading enterprises in the Gulf region with expert accounting, tax and advisory services. To boost its competitiveness, the company aimed to reduce the need for costly third-party consulting resources to augment its in-house personnel during audit engagements. How could Mazars Qatar deepen its understanding of current resource requirements and improve forward planning?

The solution

Mazars Qatar replaced manual, informal approaches to resource planning with Retain. With built-in analytics and automation, our resource planning solution offers Mazars Qatar fine-grained insight into utilisation and scheduling – empowering the company to optimise its resource plans.

The impact – a single source of truth to make informed resource planning decisions

Today, Mazars Qatar can see instantly which of its consultants are allocated to projects and which have spare capacity, saving significant amounts of time in the planning process. Crucially, the company can now maximise the utilisation of in-house teams – reducing the need for external recruitment, boosting margins and sharpening competitiveness.

As Dindo Geron, IT Audit Manager at Mazars Qatar explains: “Retain offers us fine-grained insights into our people from a single, web-based interface. At a glance, the solution enables us to see which of our team are currently allocated to audit engagements, our utilisation rate, and how much spare capacity we have for other work.”
