When looking for a system to help streamline existing operations and establish the foundation for the future, Melray Electric chose the local company with an in-depth knowledge of the contracting and construction industry.
Melray Electric general manager, Glenn Connor, who has worked with the company since 1993, says when the organisation began searching for software that would help support their development, after outgrowing their existing system, it had a particular set of requirements.
“I was looking for a package that provided job costing first and foremost,” says Glenn Connor. “There’s lots of software out there, but a lot of them focus on accountancy, and have job costing as an add on.”
“When it came to understanding the needs of the contracting industry, the CostCon guys knew what we were talking about and I think that gave me confidence,” says Glenn. “They’re not accountants trying to sell me an accountancy package. The fact that they were local as well, and they had other big clients on board that we also deal with, helped me make my decision.”
