The Havebury Housing Partnership

Case Study: Infor SunSystems

Havebury received ownership of St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s 5,900 houses. It is an independent not-for-profit charitable organisation with over 9000 customers. 

As Havebury was being established it was essential that a financial management system was installed quickly and effectively.

After an extensive market evaluation using independent consultants and following a tender process, Castle Computer Services were appointed to deliver Infor SunSystems financial management system with HR Cintra Payroll and Personnel. The specification offered Havebury an exceptional integrated system.

The challenge was an implementation deadline of just twelve weeks before Havebury’s first cheque was due to be raised.

It was the unique combination of the software on offer and Castle’s PQIS approach to project implementation that convinced Havebury. PQIS, or Professional Quality Implementation Services, is Castle’s core implementation offering, which uses standard proven steps to deliver the system with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption to the business, on time and to budget.

Paul Sutherland of Castle Computer Services comments:

“The Havebury Housing Partnership has one of the best systems available in the market place today with functionality, such as direct production of regulatory and statutory reports, that specifically meets their needs as a housing organisation. There is seamless integration across finance and payroll offering very effective control within the organisation.” 

Steve Cook, Havebury Housing Partnerships Chief Executive adds:

“As a new organisation it was imperative that we started with the best available system to suit our needs. We were impressed with Castle’s approach to the delivery of the project within a very short timescale. They demonstrated a complete understanding of our needs and their unique PQIS approach to implementation ensured that the system was installed with the minimum disruption to our day-to-day business.

"The total focus of the Castle team on achieving the implementation, installation of hardware, software and thoroughly training up the Havebury team resulted in a confident and on time start up. They are a great organisation to work with.”
