Redfield’s Landscaping & Design Limited (trading as VPS Grounds) are a grounds maintenance contractor working within the commercial sector across the South of the UK. Redfield’s specialise in Grounds Maintenance, Arboriculture and both Soft and Hard landscaping.
Prior to selecting Construct and EValuate alongside Sage Accounts from Eque2, the business was using manual spreadsheets for its entire contract job costing and estimating processes, and an old version of Microsoft NAV for the business’ accounting needs.
Redfield’s suffered from a number of issues from using manual spreadsheets, for example, the business could not track variations, could not track costs on projects and could not marry up purchase orders to delivery notes. This led the business to call in Eque2, Redsky, Easybuild and Integrity Software to demo their respective construction accounting and estimating solutions.
After initial software demonstrations, Redfield’s invited Redsky and Eque2 back for a second more tailored software demonstration, after which the business recognised Eque2’s best of breed construction accounting and estimating software solutions, Construct and EValuate provided a uniquely integrated solution for managing the entire project lifecycle, which led Redfield’s to implement both.
Redfield’s is now able to track variations and all costs associated with any job in a variety of construction-specific reports which are available at the click of a button. The business also has the Delivery Note App and Eque2’s Invoice Capture module, which will allow the business to marry up orders against stock ordered and stock delivered to site electronically, without the need for paperwork which is prone to going missing.
Eque2 look forward to working with and supporting our new customers on this exciting journey.
