Read What Our Clients Are Saying:
John Brown, General Manager of the long-established HARLOW company, says, "It wasn't just a question of buying some software. We needed to ensure that we chose a Supplier Company who not only understood our Industry, but one with whom we could form a long-term working partnership. We have made great strides forward since implementing WinSIMS across our network, especially in the Operations area. This success is being carried through and rolled out into other business areas."
"The relationship with ACA Systems has progressed exactly as we hoped and planned for."
Several companies use WinSIMS modular software in Scotland. Alarmfast Supervision, founded in 1987, is a leading independent Scottish company, located conveniently near the M80 and M8 motorways in well-appointed offices at Nova Technology Park. Alarmfast provides bespoke solutions for their customers and designs, installs, maintains and services a full range of standalone and integrated intruder, CCTV, access control and fire alarm systems while providing 24/7 monitoring and maintenance services. In 1994, Alarmfast chose to partner with ACA Systems to enhance the company’s efficiency and manage their maintenance services.
ACA Systems and Alarmfast have now worked together for more than 18 years. SalesDirector William Jarviesaid, “I can remember that the cumbersome paper systems we used were becoming a constraint on our growth ambitions. WinSIMS provided us with the platform and flexibility to expand our company and continue to provide superior service to our customer base. TodayI don’t believe we could run our business as efficiently without WinSIMS, which remains at the heart of our automated systems.”
Monica Thomson added, “Being NSI Gold approved we must ensure that our customer records and administrative processes meet the highest quality standards. Alarmfast has passed first time all random inspections by NACOSS, which I understand puts us in a very small class of elite performers! The ease of use of WinSIMS helps us to maintain these exceptional standards and ensures new staff training can be implemented quickly. ACA Systems’ extensive integrated package of software modules also provides us with our stock control and purchase order system, specifications and quotations and our accounts. The biggest benefit is that they talk to one another so data entry is minimised.”
Margaret Smart, Financial Controller, said, “We use WinSIMS’ own accounts module, which is low-cost, straightforward to use and fulfils all our requirements. WinSIMS automatically invoices each month and produces the statements. It will email all those documents as PDFs or it can print them; the choice is ours. It can even link to our bank’s direct debit software.”
Thameside Fire Protection Co Ltd have been an ACA customer since 1999.
Financial Director Gareth Burnall says, "We can recommend ACA Systems wholeheartedly. We have worked together as Business Partners for some time now, and the administration systems have been installed, enhanced and strengthened according to our demands."
"Many of you will know that we specialize in Fire Detection, Extinguisher, Sprinkler and other related systems. Our admin systems have been developed with ACA Systems to ensure full compliance with ISO, BAFE, LPS and other approval bodies."
"We have set ourselves very high standards for customer support and service, and WinSIMS enables us to meet our customers' and our own internal expectations."
Ultra Security Systems Ltd. is a long-standing NSI installer in Liverpool . "We run our business with a minimum of admin staff," says Jacqui Woods, Ultra’s Company Secretary, "so I am pleased to be able to say that WinSIMS is very cost-effective and does all of the important things quickly and efficiently. It even tells us where information is missing! The time that it has saved, has enabled me to do things that I never had time to do before, resulting in more business opportunities for Ultra. It is genuinely very easy to use and we have been delighted with the quality of the training that we have received from ACA."
