With a strong reputation for supporting some of the UK’s largest firms, Key Electrical have upgraded their existing system to utilise the construction specific functionality of Evolution M.
Key provides full Electrical, Shopfitting and Building Installation work for a variety of household names within the retail and commercial sectors to the highest possible standard which has supported steady growth for the business over the past 20 years.
After running an existing accounts package in the business for many years, the recent growth experienced has highlighted a number of functionality gaps which is preventing the management team at Key from analysing up to date detailed information on specific contracts across its 3 divisions, without the use of inefficient spreadsheets and excessive duplication along the way.
Key is also involved in the installation of self-scan units for a number of supermarkets. Each contract can cover 40 or 50 stores and therefore the analysis across each individual installation is as important as understanding a contract’s performance as a whole.
With the construction specific functionality included within Evolution M, Key will benefit from improved cost analysis and business intelligence with the ability to allocate every contract to the relevant division by using the systems’ flexible cost centres. Evolution M will also remove the frustrations and inefficiencies associated with reporting on such information by utilising the systems built in report writing capabilities to quickly support the management teams’ decision-making.
In addition, the flexible and configurable sales process within Evolution M will allow Key to match the sales processes of specific clients to ensure the business does not have to track any part of a process externally to the system, helping to maintain accuracy and control at all times.
