Applecross success leads to sales boost for RedSky IT

The success of a new IT system implemented by Scottish contractor Applecross has led to a flood of new contracts for RedSky IT who has started the New Year with a positive sales boost.

Based in Edinburgh, Applecross, the £14m turnover housebuilder, are specialists in new build, high specification residential properties. Their main emphasis is on quality bespoke housing hence the need for tight control of costs and accurate forecasting.

"With over 100 subcontractors working on our projects at any one time we needed a new IT system that could control the many facets of an ongoing project. RedSky IT advised us to use their AXiM Financial Software. The new reporting functionality has increased visibility on our financial and budget performance which in turn will lead us to identify further cost savings and improve margins," said Derek Adam, Financial Controller for the company.

Through Applecross, RedSky IT has been able to demonstrate the success of new functionality incorporated into AXiM and this has proved very popular with the general construction and house building community.

RedSky IT Managing Director Mark Chambers comments, "With the success at Applecross word has evidently reached the general contracting community in Scotland and we have recorded a substantial increase in enquires from this region and are gaining a sales boost. This is very welcome at this time of the year and Applecross join over 120 other Scottish customers using RedSky IT software to run their businesses."
