"For many years we used our own bespoke development appraisal spreadsheets which we had written in-house and developed over time. However, two years ago we decided the time was right to purchase new appraisal software which didn’t require the expertise of one person to update it and could be relied upon to quickly reflect changes in the external operating market."
"After much research we bought Landval and ProVal from SDS, which are now used by our entire development team. The packages have proved to meet all our needs and the support and training services provided by SDS have been very good. We have also recently purchased Sequel to help us manage our cash flow forecasts, which are vital to our treasury management and private finance requirements."
"We have previously used an alternative development appraisal system, but wanted to switch to something more straightforward and user friendly, both from an operational point of view and also something that would be readily understood by possible investors/funders and other third parties whom we might wish to share viability information with. Equally, of course, the chosen system had to contain all the key elements and measures that you would expect from an appraisal system."
"Landval is straightforward to operate and, with minimal guidance, new users can understand the fundamentals. Key data is clearly presented in logical format. It is flexible and it is very simple to make alterations to the input information in the event of changes to development proposals (usually inevitable!). In general, we are very satisfied with Landval."
"At Asprey, we use Landval and have done so for the past 4 Years. The training offered by SDS is a good starting point to understand how the system works. Furthermore, the application is easy to use, albeit on a basic level."
"We have found the after sales service offered to be good - whenever I have had a problem or not understood aspects of the system, SDS has provided a comprehensive answer or solution."
"On balance, therefore, I would recommend Landval to other parties."
