Cooper Cromar are a leading Glasgow-based multi-award winning UK architectural practice operating throughout all sectors of the property and construction industries.
We spoke with Cooper Cromar's then Financial Controller Jackie Morrison, who told us about their need to implement efficiencies.
“It has made us more efficient. And the efficiency…the time that we’ve gained is used to do things that we didn’t have time to do before.”
Synergist was their first choice for a number of reasons. “The biggest thing that Synergist had was that it linked to Sage accounts. [It’s] very, very straightforward,” said Jackie. Cooper Cromar also decided to invest in Synergist because of its web option, how it linked to accounts and its attractive cost. In fact, when it came to the price, they found that “Synergist is ideal for our numbers.”
Jackie also liked the fact that it had a handy contacts database. Planning and installation went very smoothly, with high quality training and advice being provided by Express Systems. And the system has certainly made life easier, with a lot of time being saved on some routine work. Before Cooper Cromar had Synergist, half a dozen tasks – including changing clients’ names and filling in time sheets and invoices – were being done three or four times. With Synergist, these only have to be carried out once.
