In 2012 DLR Leisure Service (DLRLS) engaged Enclave Technologies to provide support and services for their Sage 50 Accounts system. As we worked with DLRLS it became apparent that Sage 50 was no longer fit for purpose because of the complexity of their business processes as well as the system’s underperformance due to the volume of transactions.
After a detailed review, Enclave recommended an on-premise deployment of Sage 200 Extra.
Enclave, together with the DLRLS Finance Team, designed and implemented a new nominal ledger structure to facilitate data capture and reporting across each of the separate leisure centres operated by DLRLS. DLRLS have implemented Sage 200 with modules to manage incoming and outgoing finances. The organisation also implemented the Sage 200 Invoicing module to control billing to clubs and schools contracted to use their facilities. Enclave Technologies’ in-house software development team have supplemented the Sage 200 modules with custom enhancements to meet the specific business requirements of DLRLS.
Sage 200 has enabled DLRLS to transform the large volumes of data collected at centre level into meaningful information. This allows DLRLS to make more informed decisions at Head Office.
Michelle Mulvey, Accounts Manager at DLRLS said of the project:
“We have found the reporting features in particular extremely useful. Before we used these reports we made a lot of decisions based on incomplete information. Now we have exacting key performance indicators and this allows us to analyse and implement meaningful business change."
“Enclave were and are very responsive and helpful, but also proactive to anticipate our needs.””
Says Michelle Mulvey, of DLRLS,
“This is really only possible because Gavin is an Accountant and also a Sage 200 expert, so not only does he understand the system but how to optimise it for our situation.”
