Dorset building contractor A Hammond and Sons has been a RedSky IT customer for over 20 years. The company recently took the decision to upgrade from RedSky’s AXiM product to its comprehensive Summit Modular Financial & Operational system.
Head of Finance Maxine Thrasher said: “When we were looking to upgrade our system, we did consider other options and changing to another supplier. I’m convinced that RedSky is a stable company that the management team continues to invest in. We also know from experience that RedSky software clearly has the functionality we need.”
“To be on a platform like Summit Modular, which continues to be developed and improved all the time, is vitally important to us. Knowing that the system will benefit from long-term support and that the latest product enhancements will be available to us are two very big plus points.”
“We have good onsite backup facilities, but we’ve gone for the hosted option, to give us even more peace of mind. An added bonus of this option, of course, is that any upgrades are then implemented automatically.”
Maxine is particularly looking forward to maximising the benefits of Summit’s email functionality: “The encrypted payslips will be very useful and will save us a lot of time and money. We won’t have to print and post remittances and statements anymore, because the system will email them all out at the touch of a button.”
“Our Finance and Surveying teams will also be using Summit’s Business Analytics suite and if all goes well, we’ll be rolling it out further.”
In Maxine’s eyes, RedSky continues to go from strength to strength: As RedSky brings more companies on board, this should also be of benefit in sharing best practices and knowledge, with the objective of providing an even better product to the end-user.”
