In this article, we delve into the core reasons why contractors and construction companies are seeking solutions such as Construct for Sage Accounts.
Syncro Fire & Security LTD
Syncro Fire & Security LTD are highly respected in the protection and security industry. Operating out of Golborne in Warrington, Syncro specialises in maintaining operational continuity of life safety and security systems.
Before finding Construct and Eque2, Syncro were using Sage 50 as a standalone product alongside manual spreadsheets. However, they wanted to find a better solution for managing information which allowed them to increase efficiency, reduce errors, and report on information in real time.
Through an online demonstration of Construct for Sage Accounts, the Syncro team saw how they could monitor retentions, handle variations, log sales applications and create live reports. They saw, with Construct for Sage, how their existing Sage data can be collated, extrapolated, and reported on in real-time.
The decision to adopt Construct for Sage came only an hour after the demonstration, and Syncro can now manage sales applications, sales certificates, and sales invoices all in real-time.
Goodyer Limited are building repair specialists with over 25 years of experience in carrying out repairs to both domestic and commercial properties. Goodyer, who are based out of Watford, provide specialised services in drainage, electrical, restoration, structural waterproofing and inspection.
Goodyer were originally using an Integrity Software solution called Evolution. However, found this solution was not best suited for their requirements. Being both well-versed and a fan of Sage, Goodyer set out to find a solution that had superior functionality and capabilities to integrate with the familiar accounting platform.
After being recommended to Eque2 by Sage themselves, they attended a demonstration where they could see how the system handled reporting on profits, phases of work and retention owed. Furthermore, they saw how to produce applications and view their billing periods alongside storing electronic invoices.
As a clear upgrade on their existing system, Goodyer now look forward to using Construct for Sage as their primary tool for reporting and invoicing needs, and much more.
H.H. Smith & Sons Co. LTD
H.H. Smith & Sons Co. LTD are a construction company which have been providing quality services for over 65 years. Located in Whitefield, Manchester, H.H. Smith & Sons offer high quality products, within budget, and on time.
Prior to selecting Construct for Sage, H.H. Smith & Sons were using Sage and manual spreadsheets. However, they wanted better control over the purchase ordering process, to avoid duplicate payments to suppliers and to get better visibility and reporting of live contract performance.
Throughout the demonstration with Eque2, they saw the benefits of both Construct for Sage and EValuate estimating software. It allowed for total control and viewing of the PO process, whilst minimising the time-consuming manual processes in one system. Being avid users of Sage, the Construct product complimented their existing system profoundly. Alongside this, they saw how EValuate can save them time, increase efficiency, and reduce risk of errors from using manual spreadsheets.
With both Construct for Sage and EValuate, H.H. Smith & Sons will now have more control over their Purchase Orders, greater job costing capabilities and live reporting on performance of contracts from start to finish on their jobs.
