How this Irish Contractor is Utilising Eque2’s Construction Accounting Software

November 8, 2022

Eque2 are proud to support Irish contractors in the construction industry to run their business at optimal efficiency and profitability by helping to manage their contract costs, retentions and purchase orders and complete submissions to the Revenue Online Services (ROS) to guarantee compliance with the RCT scheme and ensure all projects are delivered on time and on budget.

Within this article we take a look at why Sirio developments have chosen to adopt our  Eque2 Construct for Sage Accounts software to start increasing efficiency across their business, read on to find out more…

Sirio Developments and their needs

Sirio Developments are Irish housebuilders based out of Johnston, Kildare. Specialising in every aspect of housebuilding, Sirio work to achieve quality builds for great value.

As a freshly founded company, Sirio needed an accounts package as well as a job costing system to manage their future projects, with their newest project set to start in November.

Sirio knew that they needed a job costing system which could:

  • Manage their approvals processes and purchase orders
  • Produce live, detailed reports which could produce costs vs budget reports and analyse plot/ build types.
  • Integrate directly into RCT (Irish Government Finance Portal) and the ability to handle ROS tax
  • Could digitally store invoices and could connect their onsite workers to their office staff.

After having Eque2 recommended by an independent quantity surveyor, Sirio reached out and a demo was arranged.

Sirio Developments and Construct

During the online demonstration, Sirio saw how they could use advanced reporting to quickly get an insight into the performance and financial position of their construction projects through a number of prebuilt reports including costs vs budget and WIP.

As well as this, they could also build their own custom reports to provide them with the exact information they need at the click of a button. This would allow them to create reports to analyse their building plots.

Through the integrated RCT portal, Construct would allow them to manage their subcontractor insurance as well as their ROS Tax.

Furthermore, with Eque2’s Document Capture Module, Sirio saw how it could record all sent and received documents including invoices, purchase orders and subcontractor documents. This would allow them to track and keep a trail of all changes, variations and alterations

With the delivery notes app, Sirio could raise their invoices against purchase orders and goods which turn up on-site allowing them to achieve a three-way match.

Finally, Sirio saw Construct’s job costing functions. These functions would allow them to create custom and fully editable budget templates with cost codes. This would allow them to easily set up and track costs based on real-time progress across their projects.

After the demo, Sirio purchased Construct for Sage Ireland, Sage50 Professional, the delivery notes app and the Document Capture Module.
