Lytollis Limited (Lytollis) are civil engineering contractors who provide key services in groundworks, mechanical engineering, and steel fabrication for customers in the oil and gas sectors.
In this article, we will explore the main reasons why Lytoliss chose to adopt Eque2’s Construct for Sage 50 alongside EValuate estimating software into their job costing and estimating processes as they prepare to continue to grow as a business and adjust to the ‘new normal’.
Lytollis work hard to ensure that the needs of their customers are fully met and have a tailored approach to each of their projects, offering a customisable service to best fit their customers requirements.
As a result of their continuing commercial success, Lytollis experienced a sharp increase in the amount of workload generated from the projects they were taking on. With multiple power stations construction projects and more large projects anticipated in the near future, they decided that their accounting processes required greater functionality than their Sage 50 Accounts and manual spread sheets could offer.
Using Sage 50 Accounts as their only accounting solution, they were often finding inconsistencies between their estimated material, labour and subcontractor costs compared to their actual spend on their projects due to disparate information between their estimating and post-contract teams.
Lytollis recognised that in the current economic climate, they would be able to greatly benefit from introducing new systems for their estimating and job costing processes that could help them maximise their profit margins and continue to grow.
Lytollis wanted an accounting system that could help ensure that their post-contract team conducting the job costing accurately corresponds with their estimator’s forecasted costs on a project to prevent unexpected costs from occurring.
Following a free online consultation with Eque2, Lytollis were able to see how Construct for Sage and EValuate could offer them a complete end-to-end solution, from estimation to final account, that would work seamlessly with their existing Sage 50 Accounts package.
With their new systems in place, Lytollis will now be able to conduct their pricing and tendering with 100% accuracy whilst being able to track the actual spend on projects as they work with real-time data.
