    The problem

    Narec had been using Sage 50, with a Microsoft Access database for timesheet recording, purchase ordering processing and a basic project costing system.

    Tony notes, "As the organisation grew, both systems began to struggle to meet our requirements."

    How Sage 200 (Commercials and Project Accounting) helped

    Today, the core finance team at Narec are heavy users of Sage 200 for tasks such as processing purchase orders, invoices and payments. The new system allows  much quicker month end close out, and it’s easier to identify issues and errors regarding purchase order processing
    and timesheets.

    Timescales for producing reports have also shortened dramatically, giving managers improved control of the business.

    The solution is also widely used by non-finance staff to raise purchase requisitions, receive goods and enter their timesheets. Every one of Narec’s 103 employees has to complete hourly timesheets, so that time can be allocated to the right project. Staff working remotely can enter their timesheets over the web, which simplifies administration, increases accuracy and ensures there is no time lag in recording the data.

    "Management reporting is a real strength of Sage 200. Whereas it used to take two days to interrogate the Microsoft Access database and compile a report, Sage 200 has cut this down to just half a day."

    The problem

    They turned to Sage 200 to help them deal with the thousands of transactions, statements and banking functions they manage for their customers every day and improve efficiency by automating many of their manual processes. “Contracts require us to perform to a certain service level,” Darren Reynolds, Director of Slick Machine explains, “That means 99% of payments received before noon must be directly allocated by 2:00pm the same day.

    How Sage 200 Online helped

    Being able to work freely and flexibly is important to Slick Machine, and they need a solution that doesn’t mean a big investment in IT infrastructure and support.

    Sage 200 Online integrates with in-house software and online banking systems to help Slick Machine deal with multiple customers and transactions smoothly. It means they can take advantage of new opportunities without the cost and headache of investing heavily in IT systems and support. “There’s a great market opportunity if we can hone our skills and use the best technology to handle business processes more accurately and efficiently.

    "I'm not interested in wires and service packs. I'm not interested in upgrades...backup system contracts... I'm not interested in any of that. I've got a business to run."
