The restructuring of Binn Skips Ltd and Binn Waste Management Ltd into Binn Group in 2014 was a watershed in the group’s use of business IT systems.
Up to that point, accounts were run on a Sage Accounts 50 package. It was clear that the new group would need a much more powerful system to support the business going forward, one that could report on subsidiary companies and also perform group-wide consolidation.
Group Finance Manager Ruth Fraser had overseen a similar move once before and set her sights on Sage 200: “Business growth is exciting but we have to ensure it is sustainable. We felt Sage 200 would give us the necessary tight financial control.”
Ruth’s experience of working with Pinnacle on the Sage 200 implementation in her previous company made them an obvious choice of Sage Partner to manage what would be a major undertaking.
She comments, “Our selection of Pinnacle was a no-brainer. We did, of course, benchmark what they could offer us against other providers on the market, but I could be confident that they would make the whole process of migrating to Sage 200 as smooth as possible, with minimal disruption to the business.”
