About

Construction Accounting & Business Management SoftwareAMEON are a forward thinking organisation committed to providing high levels of service and the delivery of efficient and cost-effective solutions on projects of all sizes, and require a flexible, stable accounting system which is able to grow with them.

The challenge

  • Reduce time spent manually adjusting accounts
  • Regaining confidence in accounting software providers
  • Finding a flexible system to move with the business

The solution

In September 2007, AMEON Building Services Engineering successfully went live on their new Evolution M (previously Mardak) construction accounting system after losing confidence in their previous system providers Extreme Estimation.

“Our previous solution was not providing us with the functionality we required and the support received was far from satisfactory.” explains Company Secretary Jean O’Hagan.

The result

Reducing Manual Processes

The business has used a range of accounting systems in the past, initially running Opera from Pegasus before using Extreme Estimation alongside Sage for Payroll and accounting purposes.

“Up until using Evolution M, many of our accounting processes were done manually across a range of systems. When we began searching for a new system we were instantly impressed with the integrated and user friendly nature of Evolution M.

Errors were extremely difficult to spot on our old system, often taking days to rectify the problem, however Evolution M has a very logical workflow and errors can be quickly identified and resolved within minutes.”

Renewed Confidence in Support

“We rely heavily on our accounting system to support commercial decisions which often requires access to data quickly. Using our previous system we had to make do with bespoke reports and sometimes support issues could take weeks to resolve.

Integrity Software places a huge emphasis on customer support and help to resolve any issues very quickly, allowing us to get on with our day jobs.”

Real Time Saving Benefits

“A major benefit we have gained since switching to Evolution M has been the ability to balance our Contract and Nominal Ledgers. Previously we would waste a lot of time manually trying to balance actual costs with our Contract Manager’s valuations to find the true nominal situation.

When a misbalance does occur we can quickly export the information into Excel and identify where the difference is and amend, which used to take me days!

The CIS Returns are also very straightforward in Evolution M, simply run the report and send off to the HMRC with confidence.”

Flexible Accounting

“We are always looking for ways to improve business processes, often requiring very specific reports in a range of formats, Evolution M is flexible and caters for our needs brilliantly.

The Report Writer within Evolution M has allowed me to spend more time producing the exact reports required and supports commercial decisions faster and more accurately than we have ever had before.”

Why recommend Evolution M to other businesses?

“From the first presentation of Evolution M we were impressed with the product and the team behind it.

The implementation process was extremely professional and thorough, we were demanding of our needs and the product, the training exceeded all expectations allowing us to fully utilise the system.

We now have a system we can trust and rely on and are confident the system can grow with our business.”
