After support for their existing accounts solution came to an end, Haynes & Smith set about finding a modern accounts package which was more in tune with their requirements as a construction company and selected Evolution M from Integrity Software.
Haynes & Smith Ltd, based in Essex, is one of the UK’s leading construction companies with specialist expertise for essential community assets such as hospitals, schools, village halls and social housing. Haynes & Smith work on a variety of projects combining refurbishment and new build contracts and as such require a flexible and user friendly accounts system to support the business moving forward.
One of the areas that Company Secretary Penny Betteridge wanted to improve upon was the level of financial analysis provided from the accounts system. Evolution M is fully integrated and has a dedicated Contract Ledger which ensures quick access to cost, value, cash and budget, committed and delivered information is available in a variety of formats to share with the management team to support decision making.
Penny had also noticed an increase in the amount of time and effort which was being spent managing subcontractors and therefore wanted the new system to make these requirements less onerous. Evolution M has a fully integrated subcontractor module which caters for all aspects of managing and paying subcontractors and includes time saving features such as the automatic online verification of new subcontractors with HMRC, plus built in reminders for when insurance is due to expire.
With Evolution M, Haynes & Smith will now have a user friendly, modern accounting solution which provides financial and cost information at the click of a button, available at summary and detailed levels.
