To futureproof the business, refurbishment and planned maintenance expert Kincraig Construction has signed up to migrate from RedSky’s legacy CONSTRUCT product to its award-winning construction and accounting software.
Kincraig’s Accounts and Office Manager Sam Freer is delighted at the company’s decision to migrate. “We’ve been on CONSTRUCT for more than 15 years,” she said. “Although it does everything we need it to do and is really easy to use, we are getting very busy now. We need something more secure and streamlined to support us, going forward.
“RedSky’s latest system is modular and flexible, so we know it will be able to grow with us. It’s designed for the construction industry – it’s ideal for dealing with things like retentions and subcontractor payments, as well as integrated payroll.”
Hosted in the cloud
RedSky’s new system has many similarities to CONSTRUCT, so Kincraig users won’t have to learn everything from scratch.
The new streamlined processes will need far fewer clicks to complete. Sam particularly likes the idea of directors being able to apply for a RedSky Business Analytics licence: they will then be able to run live reports at the touch of a button and gain insights on key metrics, displayed on user-friendly dashboards.
The migration will also provide a welcome opportunity for Kincraig to move away from its current reliance on 20-year-old servers to a far sleeker, cloud-based service hosted by RedSky. “It’ll be a huge weight off my mind,” said Sam.
“After all those years of having to do all the patches, updates and legislative changes ‘on my tod’, it’ll be great to have RedSky sorting it all out for me. I won’t be responsible for doing a manual back-up on a CD every night either – that’ll all be done automatically in the cloud. I’ll finally be able to uncross my fingers!”
