Weir Westgarth use SunSystems for up-to-date reporting
Case Study: Infor SunSystems
Weir Westgarth is part of the Weir Techna Division, which in turn is the specialist engineering design and systems integration division of the Weir Group.
The company works closely with its customers, contributing expertise to manage high-capital, technically complex world class projects where safety, reliability, efficiency and cost effective operation are principal concerns.
The sectors in which the Techna businesses operate are diverse, and their engineering and project management skills are second to none.
With operations located in Europe, the Middle East, the USA and Southern Africa, Weir Techna Division project teams bring world class systems and expertise to all their products and provide ongoing support and commitment to each of their customers.
The company felt that its previous financial management system had outlived its usefulness. Having served well for several years the system was unable to roll forward balances and reporting standards were poor. The company wanted one system that could deliver full database integration, providing links to global sites with flexible ad hoc reporting and multi currency solutions. Weir also needed the system to be installed by a supplier with the expertise to ensure the minimum of disruption to their day to day business.
Weir Westgarth chose Castle to install a SunSystems financial management system that delivered an integrated solution that met all their needs and included contract cost reporting, links to Excel for budget data, the ability to share information across multiple sites and a multi currency solution.
George Strathie of Castle Computer Services said:
“Weir Westgarth now has one of the best financial management solutions available today and it will meet their needs for some time to come.”
Jim Limond, Financial Controller at Weir Westgarth added:
“The benefits and functionality of the SunSystems solution have demonstrated very quickly that we made the right decision. We now have a very powerful financial management solution that means quick access to information and real flexibility. We were impressed with Castle’s knowledge, commitment and professionalism in completing the job on time and within budget.”
