How have we helped Carrino?
Carrino Access Flooring is home to one of our Core Business Systems, without which their business would now struggle to function. It’s on every desktop and laptop throughout the business, keeping in shape everything from lead generation, through production, project management and stock control to accounts and credit control. The movements and costings of materials, subcontractors and haulage to multi-million pound construction projects they manage are all co-ordinated from its bespoke easy-to-use interface.
Central to the contracts side is a detailed quoting system which allows complex costings to be built right up from component level, with provision for waste and conversion of multiple units of measure. The system is built to understand the unique financial foibles of the construction industry, such as main-contractor discounting, staged payments upon application and two-stage retention after project completion. Retaining accurate job costings is central to the system, and detailed monthly profit reporting is available on each contract or across all work in progress.
