Cameron Butcher Group, a Midlands-based construction firm, will improve financial control and efficiency by going live with Exchequer finance software from Advanced this summer. The company will also implement the eXchequer365 mobile application to further streamline accounting processes.

Cameron Butcher Group specialises in building and refurbishing commercial properties such as care homes, offices and schools. The business was looking for a more integrated and efficient system in order to reduce the administrative burden on the finance team and gain better control over spending and budgeting.

Advanced was selected from four other software providers due to its rich functionality that combines accounting with project job costing.

The company will use the construction version of Exchequer for its core accounting processes, including payroll, purchase order processing, job costing and reporting. The solution will provide the accounts team with live and accurate information on how much is being spent on each job, giving them instant access to the information they need for improved planning and analysis.

The new system will see the company move away from Excel spreadsheets and reduce the level of manual work involved in processing purchase orders and invoices. It will also save time when it comes to entering timesheets as they will be handled on a weekly rather than a monthly basis.
