SC Group Global

This is a crucial decision for SC Group. The rapid proof-of-concept and the enthusiasm and commitment of HAYNE Solutions and LucaNet UK convinced us that the product and support offered, was the right choice for the business. Their UK references also confirmed that we could own the build and ongoing maintenance of the application rather than continuing to rely on external consultancy. This helped to underpin the rationale that the product is robust and intuitive to use.

The troubles that come with growth

Growth has added substantial complexity to the finance function across consolidation, planning and reporting, and in particular, accurate costing of engineering projects to ensure competitive bids and profitable projects.

The existing ERP (Exact) continues to provide a solid foundation for collecting transaction data but additional functionality was required to handle multi-currency, inter-company transactions, Group reporting and business intelligence.

The solution

A selection of potential software solutions were assessed, mostly market leaders, plus LucaNet; a relative unknown; which was recommended by Exact. LucaNet’s ease of use, which was demonstrated by our UK Partner; HAYNE Solutions; was immediately attractive.

Subsequently, a LucaNet proof-of-concept model was developed and made available online ahead of the other vendors. That, together with the power of LucaNet’s project costing planning capability as demonstrated by LucaNet UK MD Gavin Allen, was the differentiator to the other options.
