Sage 200 for the Sports & Leisure Industry
September 13, 2016 | News
Pinnacle Business Consultant Mark Green says that whether you run a national team or a local sports club, Sage 200 has the power to help you grow your business profitably.
Victory on the pitch, an increase in membership or footfall, hosting a successful tournament…these are all fine targets for businesses in the sports and leisure industry. However, for long-term commercial viability, organisations must have solid systems in place behind the scenes to manage and control their financial processes.
A strong track record
Here at Pinnacle, we’ve been working with an incredibly diverse range of businesses in sports and leisure since the 1990s. We help them to gain tighter management control and make the best use of often restricted budgets.
They come to us because they need a business-wide picture of the organisation as it is today, not last month. They want to slice and dice data to keep track of individual cost centres or departments. They want to be able to spot any worrying trends or anomalies and take remedial action before the business is affected.
Over the years, our customers have included prestigious organisations at the national level, such as the Irish Football Association (IFA), the governing body for football in Northern Ireland, and Heineken Cup winners Ulster Rugby, one of four professional provincial rugby teams from the island of Ireland. We supported Glasgow 2014, the organisation behind the Commonwealth Games, in controlling the costs involved in organising and hosting this major international multi-sport event.
Equally, we work with businesses that are serving the community, such as Aberdeen Sports Village, the premier sport and exercise facility in the north east of Scotland. We’re also seeing a lot of interest from golf courses in public and private ownership that are aiming to combat membership churn and revitalise their business.
All these organisations shared a common aim: they needed a finance and accounting system that could support them day in, day out, with the scale and the scope to enable their ambitions for growth. They have found in Sage 200 a reliable, fully automated business engine that generates accurate, up-to-date management information.
