Delivering on-time and in-budget with on-demand Financial Systems professionals
McCarthy & Stone is the UK’s largest developer of privately owned property in the UK for people in retirement, with annual sales of over £300m and around 900 employees. Over the past 35 years they have built over 45,000 apartments. In addition to property development the company also provides a range of services from estate management, to assisted living services and real estate.
McCarthy & Stone’s legacy business system (a construction industry specific tool) was beginning to creak and the business processes it underpinned were inefficient, requiring considerable manual intervention, so a decision was made to replace it with Agresso from Unit4.
Key to this decision was the full ERP functionality offered by Agresso, particularly in the areas of project costing and billing. McCarthy & Stone’s Project Manager engaged SystemsAccountants, as we were a known provider of independent Agresso implementation resources, to supply a team of five Agresso contractors to execute, design, build, test and deployment.
The consultants we provided covered a range of functional, technical and process specific domains and were instrumental in enabling the McCarthy & Stone project team to hit their Go-Live date on time. Our consultants have subsequently been retained to deliver a range of further enhancements in a post-go live development phase.View our solutions
