Using manual processes often leads to duplication and repetitive efforts in trying to accurately re-key job costing and client billing information from spreadsheets into your accounts package. Many contractors begin using spreadsheets as an effective way to monitor their projects, however fail to take measures as their business grows leading to unaligned commercial and finance teams creating inefficiencies.
Stack London is a construction management consultancy and contracting company working within the property and housing sector, based in Hatton Garden, London.
The business specialises in the design and delivery of residential and mixed-use development projects, with completed projects in Lennox Garden, Chelsea, Royal Wharf Docks, Oval Quarter Regeneration – Lambeth and RAF Stanbridge.
Prior to selecting Eque2, Stack London used Sage Accounts alongside manual spreadsheets for their job costing, the business struggled with reconciling data from spreadsheets into their accounts package which often led to duplication and the need to constantly re-enter data into multiple places.
The business went to market with an aim of connecting up its commercial and finance teams to combat inefficiencies. Desperately requiring a centralised job costing process, the business reviewed Eque2’s Construct for Sage 50 offering.
The team at Stack London were satisfied with the functionality the Construct system offered, and its ability to manage job costing orders and deliveries within one system, which links through to accounts. Previously the business struggled with allocating deliveries against orders, through to invoicing and approvals.
Stack London will also benefit from managing their subcontractors and CIS within the Construct system and look forward to using Construct to manage their entire job costing process including, subcontractor management, plant hire, variations, applications & retentions.
Eque2 would like to welcome Stack London onboard and look forward to working with the company for many years to come.
