"We regard the service we have received from SDS as excellent. Trialling the system was very good and we were very impressed with the demonstration from their Marketing Manager, Andrew Markham."
“The system is currently being used for cashflow management and workflow. We are actively working to expand this to the other functions, and in particular linking the property management section straight into our own housing management system."
"During the trial, the support SDS gave was excellent. Now that we're using the system, I particularly like the fact that I can easily check that everything is filled in correctly."
"ProVal enables us to carry out all our financial appraisals in house without the need to appoint a consultant and gives us greater freedom by having as many scenarios as we need. We've also been able to see how effects on changing parameters can make us more competitive". We use Sequel for all project workflow management, giving us greater control over management and storage of essential project information. This has assisted us greatly during recent audits carried out on the team."
"We've found the system to be a flexible and intuitive tool allowing both detailed scheme assessments and option appraisals. I would recommend it to all RPs who are considering development."
"Sequel has dramatically improved the time it takes to update our cash flows. It's very easy to manage the budgets and identify any changes to the board approved/budget figures. All our financial appraisals are carried out in ProVal and once the site has some certainty the data is imported into Sequel. Finally, as always, the training and support from SDS have been brilliant."
"I now have the means to quickly qualify whether a site will work instead of wasting resources on lost causes. The quicker turnaround of sites means we can process more opportunities, free up resources and benefit from happy Vendors and Land Agents who get a rapid response."
“ProVal has given us and our Board confidence in our site appraisal methodology and proves really valuable in the preparation of our offers to the HCA for the bid rounds. It has also significantly improved the working relationship between our Finance and Development Teams."
"In addition to using the full version of Sequel, we needed a solution that would help make Orbit Homes a truly mobile workforce. The need to increase productivity and remove duplication of workload was a primary focus of the Development and Sales & Marketing teams. SDS supplied us with Sequel Mobile which is fantastic and enables us to do exactly that."
