Pipe Tool Specialists Streamline Group Finance with Pegasus Opera II

11 February 2009

Leading Importer and Distributor Moves to Consolidated Group Structure
Pegasus Software, a supplier of accounting and business software to UK SMEs, today announced that Pipe Tool Specialists (PTS), has extended its investment in Pegasus solutions. 

PTS has upgraded to Opera II to streamline its group of five companies and drive efficiencies throughout a new structure.  The deployment of Opera II, complete with sales pipeline management (SPM) modules, will go live in January 2009.

Previously an Opera user, PTS also short-listed SAP and Sage 500 systems in its search for a single system to be deployed throughout the group.  Pegasus Opera II was selected not only because it offered better functionality but because its rapid deployment meant Pegasus’ implementation partner Raven Computers, could deliver a completion date of January 2009.

As part of the upgrade, Raven Computers imported data from not only Opera but also Tas Books 3, both of which were in use across the group of companies

Steve Stefaniuk, managing director of Pipe Tool Specialists explained what has driven the investment:  “PTS has recently evolved from a loose collection of five companies with separate accounting systems to an integrated whole with consolidated financial reports.  Financial management will be significantly enhanced, which will help assist our continued growth, and Opera II will be at the heart of that. “

“We looked for a consolidated accounts package which would enable us to increase customer satisfaction levels across a broad spectrum of criteria. Internally, we required improvements in reporting functions, and the ability to email documents.  Opera II delivered on all these fronts - better management information, easier reporting and improved presentation of documents.”

“The investment in sales pipeline management is a key part in our evolution, enabling us to see what projects are coming to fruition and improve our relationships with customers.”

Kevin McCallum, commercial director of Pegasus Software said: “Because we are dedicated to SMEs, we understand the critical phases of growth that businesses go through.  Opera II and SPM are both products of this understanding.  PTS recognises this expertise and its extended investment in our solutions is a clear demonstration of that.”
