We caught up with David Cousins, Finance Director, to find out why they chose our construction-specific software to power their business.
David said: “When choosing Integrity over several other providers it was important that we implemented a singular system that allowed us to increase output per headcount and reduce ongoing costs whilst providing all the functionality we needed.”
One of the crucial ways in which our software adds value to construction businesses is in the controlling of project costs. Keeping tight control of project costs can is the difference between a profitable contract and a failing one, and Blaze Construction now benefits from detailed cost drilldowns thanks to Evolution Mx.
“Historically we had a basic grasp of project costs, now we have headline cost in a Labour Plant Materials format that can be drilled down into detailed cost categories such as MOT Type 1, paving slabs etc.”
David went on to say, “We have the ability to import budgets against these and monitor costs on a monthly basis.”
More than 1,000 construction companies throughout the UK and Ireland rely on our award-winning software to help them be as productive, efficient, and profitable as they can, and Blaze Construction is no exception.
“Carefully planning how the system would work with our current procedures and adapting these to be as streamlined as possible has allowed us to support the company’s growth from £18m to circa £33m with little increase in staff” David commented.
But it’s not just the software itself that makes us the leading choice for ambitious contractors up and down the country, our people are what sets us apart, and David agrees.
“Great support staff on the end of the phone, with minimal staff turnover you get that personal rapport that you don’t get with others. I have worked for massive blue-chip companies through to small entities and this software is far the best I have come across; the software is flexible and adaptable to your business.”
