lucent is not your typical advisory firm.

We understand the needs of modern business and we know what it takes to be successful in it.
That’s why we consider both your critical success factors – your numbers and your people.
Our solutions are designed to maximise your performance, improve your
processes and deliver data you can trust.

We love to work with businesses who want to improve profitability, increase employee productivity, value strategic advice
and want to outsource their finance, payroll and hr tasks.

"After implementing ReceiptBank & ApprovalMax, our day-to-day data entry is almost non-existent. We get a daily log to approve, which includes actual invoices and accounts.
