Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) are one of the UK’s leading provider of façade access and fall arrest equipment services, lightning protection and electrical testing, specialist building access and fire solutions.
Founded in 2007, PTSG operates out of West Yorkshire and employs over 1,300 people across 30 UK sites, who service more than a staggering 180,000 buildings across the whole of the UK for over 20,000 customers in a wide range of industries.
Due to the size of the company, and the recent growth they saw, PTSG reached a dead end with the software they were using. As the business doubled in size, the bespoke package they were using alongside Sage 200 was underperforming and couldn’t keep up with the amount of work being thrown at it.
As the bespoke solution wasn’t viable anymore, PTSG resorted to using spreadsheets. However, spreadsheets soon became overwhelming; with the amount of work PTSG were receiving, they saw that they needed a solution to grow alongside them.
After doing some research, PTSG reached out to Eque2. After getting in contact and a few calls later, it was clear what their defining priorities were
- To have clear visibility and monitor the positions of applications from raising to tracking.
- To have the ability to build estimates then pass to procurement in one system.
- To have an off-the-shelf system that integrates with their existing software package (Sage 200)
- To be able to raise, send and monitor invoices to clients to receive cash.
- To have an all-in-one solution that members across the financial and commercial teams can use seamlessly from the start of a project to finish.
After their priorities were outlined, an online demonstration was arranged.
During the demo, PTSG saw how Construct for Sage 200 can manage its projects from start to finish. They saw how Construct can drastically reduce time spent on individual estimations, raising applications and monitoring retentions whilst reducing the risk of human error which spreadsheets have.
Furthermore, they saw how the software has the ability to scale with the company, meaning they wouldn’t have to worry about replacing a system any time soon, and can focus on the more important projects at hand.
After the demo, PTSG purchased Construct for Sage 200, alongside EValuate Estimating and our Post-Contract Module. They explained to us that as an off the shelf product, it exceeded their expectations. They also added that the calibre shown by the Eque2 team during the sales process was exceptional.
