Following several business acquisitions, BusinessWatch Group, a leading supplier of security alarms, fire alarms and CCTV camera systems to businesses across the UK, is working with leading Sage Business Partner, Datel, to implement and support the company’s new Sage 200 business management solution.
Currently, each of the companies in the BusinessWatch Group uses its own separate accounts package; meaning there are several different Sage 50 systems in operation. Due to the expansion of the Group, the software was starting to “creak at the seams” according to Mark Johnson, Financial Controller at BusinessWatch Group.
Mark explains: “In 2014, the family company BusinessWatch acquired new shareholders who wanted to adopt a ‘buy and build’ strategy to propel the business into national markets. This led to the acquisition of 7 other established businesses over the last couple of years, and the official formation of the BusinessWatch Group of companies.
