Tragus Case Study

The Tragus group is one of the largest independent restaurant chains in the UK with 154 restaurants across the country, and one restaurant in Jersey. Tragus now has a turnover in excess of £100m, with three new restaurants opened in the last 6 months and more in the pipeline. The company was formed in 2002 through the acquisition of the Pelican and BrightReasons businesses from Whitbread. Following the acquisition Tragus had 6 months to set-up new systems independent from Whitbread. Among other changes to their financial and accounting systems, Tragus had to look at new ways to deliver the 3 separate payrolls within the company.
