"As users of ProVal XL Accent Group were aware of the benefits of using the SDS appraisal tool however when the opportunity presented itself to move to ProVal LS this was accepted straight away. ProVal LS allows the Group to assess complex multi-tenure schemes on one appraisal and a quick feasibility can be produced efficiently with the standard unit types and defaults."
Accent Group have been using both ProVal and Sequel for over a year and we are extremely pleased with the products provided. SDS were chosen following a rigorous selection process and were found to be the most competitive, offered the functionality required and provided an excellent implementation, training and support service.
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.
"Devon and Cornwall HA uses ProVal, Sequel and Catalyst. We have been using some of these applications for over five years. We have always found the training provided by SDS to be relevant and thorough. Once trained, staff find the applications straightforward to use."
"The SDS after sales service has always been quick to respond and helpful with any queries and problems which we may have."
"ProVal and Sequel are essential tools in carrying out our housing development programme. Both provide relatively streamlined approaches so that staff can complete quick appraisals and manage projects with minimal internal bureaucracy. I would recommend these applications to other companies."
We have been using ProVal and "Sequel at SBHG for the last 3 years. I have found the training offered by SDS to be thorough, competent and understandable. Once trained, our staff have found the applications easy to use, depending on the level of knowledge of the individual project manager. Furthermore, I have found the SDS ‘after sales service’ to be instantaneous and competent. I would be happy to recommend SDS to other companies."
"SDS has also carried out in-depth assessment of good practices to follow and the implementation of procedures to ensure that the Finance Department are fully engaged on the financial requirements. This piece of work has provided our Internal Auditor with valuable information to assist him in his audit process."
