Acorn BMS have a long standing and in-depth knowledge of FP McCann’s business operations and were best placed to identify and implement the most appropriate solution. Due to the extensive period of growth, it was recommended that the ideal solution would be to upgrade to the Sage 200 package. Sage has now been embedded in FP McCann for over 20 years which highlights their trust and satisfaction in the software.
Sage 200 was recommended as the natural progression from Sage Line 100 as FP McCann needed the functionality of a larger system. Sage 200 is a modular based business management system that provides rich functionality, automating all your business processes, providing a 360-degree view of the business, from back office accounts to customer service delivery.
One of the key reasons for selecting Sage 200 was that it could be easily tailored to meet the needs of the business with simplistic integration to internally developed software packages. Another key feature is the Financials Module, which lets FP McCann see their financial position of the company at any point in time, running four key ledgers – sales, purchasing, nominal, and cashbook.
Acorn BMS, through their partner network, implemented Eque2 Construct for FP McCann’s job costing needs. This link minimises manual data entry which streamlines every stage of the construction lifecycle. Additionally, Acorn BMS have also designed and developed their own bespoke solution in the form of BACS Direct Debit software that collects and allocates receipts from customers on a monthly basis.
