Sage 200cloud helps Binn Group achieve sustainable business growth

Solution Sage 200cloud

Binn Group began life over twenty years ago as a land diversification project for a farming business. Today it remains a family business but has evolved beyond the original landfill site provision and skip hire business to become Scotland’s largest independent provider of integrated recycling and waste management services. The original farm remains one of the company’s three sites.

The group directly employs more than 120 people, delivering services ranging from supplying and emptying skips, to restoring event and festival sites to pristine condition, to safely handling industrial and trade waste to supplying a fertiliser derived from anaerobic digestion of food waste.

The business is on a mission to drive waste management forward towards a more sustainable, environmentally friendly future, replacing landfill with recycling wherever possible.

A major transition

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.”

“I have only good things to say about Pinnacle and their contribution. We are constantly looking to evolve and Pinnacle helps us to do things better. Our Group Finance Director is keen for us to keep the system up to date and, with Pinnacle’s support, we’re now looking forward to having the newest release of Sage 200 in place and live for the next financial year.”
