Solutions for Accounting and CRM, leading Business Management Software Provider and Sage Business Partner, is celebrating with their client, L W Cole (Distributors) Limited, for being the first client in the UK to go live with true-cloud accounting system, Sage Intacct!

After the launch of Sage Intacct into the UK in November 2019, it has been the talk of the SME Business Management systems market. Although new to the UK, this innovative solution has just celebrated its 20th birthday, originating in San Jose, California, in March 2000.

After months of training and accreditations, the team at Solutions for Accounting and CRM is now firmly established in the delivery phase with a number of sites set to go live!

L W Cole (Distributors) Limited is a fourth generation family run business, founded in 1944. They have been operating in the contract market for over 20 years, supplying the majority of the largest UK house builders with major domestic appliances. They have seen significant growth over the last decade but faced significant restrictions with their legacy systems, leading to an overreliance on manual processes and workarounds. They needed a comprehensive, automated and dynamic financial reporting package from a scalable cloud business management system. Sage Intacct was the perfect fit.

“We wanted to have a system which minimised time to reporting and linked in with our bespoke ERP system, with no limits on data transfer. The dimensional reporting in Sage Intacct is incredibly powerful and allows me to generate financial statements for any part of the business, even down to individual products sold, in a matter of seconds. I would highly recommend the Sage Intacct as a product and Solutions as a delivery partner.” Mike Newton, Finance Director, L.W Cole (Distributors) Limited.

Having made a significant investment in building its Intacct delivery team, Solutions are thrilled to have been able to provide Coles with a system that meets all their requirements, enabling them to accelerate revenue growth.

“It is fantastic to see the work the team has put in over the last 9 months pay off, and it has been a pleasure working with Coles in reaching this great milestone. I am very excited to see where the coming months and years is going to take Solutions, Coles and Sage Intacct!” Gareth Bezant, Head of Sage Intacct Operations, Solutions for Accounting and CRM.

Solutions had already made a firm and sustained commitment to Software as a Service (SaaS) during the last couple of years, with the addition of the number one CRM system, Salesforce, to their portfolio. These cloud native products support the societal shift towards true-cloud and SaaS solutions, not just in business but in our daily lives.

“Netflix and Spotify have become normality. No longer do we physically purchase DVDs or CDs, instead we are used to the convenience of streaming, and having so much choice at our fingertips without there being a tangible product. This is the same with Software. “You used to have a disk to upload the product onto your desktop and, although that stopped some years ago, you would still purchase the software outright and ‘own’ it. Now everything is on subscription, it’s the new normal!” Solutions Managing Director, Iain Barker.

As the recent winner of Sage’s ‘SaaS Partner of the Year’, Solutions were recognised for their commitment to the SaaS model. For guiding and educating their clients on the move to subscription and the benefits of cloud software.

Not taking their commitment to Sage Intacct lightly, Solutions have recruited and internally promoted employees making them dedicated to, and strictly focused on, Sage Intacct. The Solutions Sage Intacct team have undergone months of training, examinations and gained accreditations, ensuring they are fully prepared to disrupt the UK marketplace, and bring about transformational change for their clients.
