Global Ceramic Tiling Ltd’s decision to migrate to RedSky’s latest system will futureproof the business, while also saving time and money.
Eastleigh-based Global Ceramics has been using RedSky’s legacy CONSTRUCT system for around 15 years.
Director Jason Oliver said: “We’re perfectly happy with CONSTRUCT. As a legacy system, it is a bit old and clunky, but it does everything we need it to do. Until now, we’ve been applying the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ principle.”
A change of accounts personnel prompted a change of heart. As the outgoing member of staff was the in-house CONSTRUCT expert, her departure provided the ideal opportunity for Global Ceramics to migrate to the latest RedSky software and start benefiting from its new functionality.
“We recognised that it was time for us to change,” said Jason. “Migrating will help introduce new efficiencies to the way we work, like emailing all our documentation rather than posting it out.
“Payslips are a good example. We have around 35 people working for us. Currently we raise the monthly PAYE and weekly CIS payments, print out the payslips, put each one in a labelled envelope, stamp it and pop it in the post.
“But once we’ve migrated, we’ll be able to email an entire payslips batch in just one click. It’s going to save us a lot of time and money. Everyone will receive their payslip promptly, rather than waiting for the post to arrive. I’m sure they’ll like the fact that it’s encrypted too.”
Good business sense
Jason believes that migrating from a legacy product to cutting-edge software makes good business sense, as it will help to futureproof the business.
RedSky has successfully migrated hundreds of legacy customers to the latest system, so converting all of Global Ceramics’ data (current and historic) will be a smooth operation. Safe passage of data is guaranteed. Jason said: “The RedSky team already manages our regular backups and system updates, so we’re very happy to know that it will also be doing the migration for us.”
The upgraded core system can have a similar look and feel to CONSTRUCT, so Jason is expecting users to get up to speed with it very quickly.
