A century-old firm of sheet metal manufacturers has come bang up to date with the help of Barnsley-based IT expert Wharncliffe.

Fred Shaw & Co produces sheet metal products for a diverse range of applications.

Business has been booming for the West Yorkshire firm and that had been putting a strain on its financial systems, part of which relied on manually inputting data into Excel spreadsheets

Realising Shaw needed to radically update its entire IT infrastructure, the company’s accountants contacted Wharncliffe and Shaw’s was delighted with the results.

Wharncliffe installed a Sage 200 accountancy suite of software, which is aimed at companies with turnovers between £1 million to £50 million or employing 20 to 200 staff, and capable of integrating the activities of finance, manufacturing, project, sales and marketing departments.

“Wharncliffe are fantastic to deal with,” said works manager David Horne.

“The Wharncliffe team (was) especially easy to deal with, extremely helpful and, of course, very knowledgeable about Sage. There’s been no disruption, no problems at all.”
