Eque2 expansion continues by welcoming Davis Construction & Shawton Engineering

June 13, 2018

Eque2 would like to welcome both Davis Construction and Shawton Engineering to Construct for Sage 50, the most popular contract cost management solution for small and medium-sized contractors in the construction industry.

Davis Construction is a highly reputable contractor located in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, specialising in the planning and delivery of commercial and residential building projects throughout London and the South East. The company is CHAS Accredited, and as a winner of both the 2016 and 2017 Essex Business Excellence Awards is certified up to ISO 9001 standards.

Shawton Engineering is a renowned fabricator of structural steelwork and architectural metalwork located in St Helens, Merseyside. Shawton specialise in design, structural engineering, fabrication, precision engineering and the erection & installation of steel and metal work. The business is recognised by ConstructionOnline and is also accredited up to ISO 9001. Currently, the business is turning over close to £10 million, mainly working alongside blue-chip clients such as Bovis, Lend Lease, Laing O’Rourke, BNFL and Rolls Royce.

Prior to selecting Construct, both Davis Construction and Shawton Engineering were users of Redsky’s Summit 1000 solution, however both felt that the market-leading Sage Accounts package was a more adequate and robust solution, offering a more modern platform to support their construction-specific accounting requirements alongside Construct from Eque2.

Davis Construction selected Summit 1000 over a year ago as a platform to support their core project accounting and procurement processes, hoping to significantly improve the efficiency of the accounts payable process. However, after reviewing Construct a year later, the team concluded that this system could better facilitate the ordering and retention management processes the business required to manage. The company also wanted to be able to accurately monitor the progress of their projects, track budgeted vs actual costs and manage and track hired plant.

Shawton also selected Summit 1000, however quickly recognised the need for a more modern up to date accounting system and were quick to implement Sage. Shawton have also implemented Eque2’s Invoice Capture module, helping the business drive a change towards a paperless office.

Eque2 has welcomed a number of new clients over the last few months, if you’d like to be part of the growing Construct community and help move your business forward click here or telephone 0161 939 0111.
