Sage Coretime now installed in Shanghai!

The recent installation of Sage Coretime for SPARK Architects once again demonstrated the strength of the Coretime product in the marketplace. Spark is an award-winning international architectural and design consultancy with offices in Beijing, London, Shanghai and Singapore. They recently chose Sage Coretime as their preferred solution for managing timesheets and budgets on their projects.

SPARK creates distinctive projects across Asia, Europe and the Middle East. With 100 employees spanning 16 nationalities and 3 continents, SPARK wanted to find a web-based solution which would be easily accessible for their staff.  The new software will help remove duplication of effort and improve project analysis.

Sage Coretime will be used by 60 staff based mostly at their Shanghai offices.  The addition of the Staff Planner module will be used for resource planning to ensure they achieve high productivity levels and optimum staff utilisation.

As well as a comprehensive suite of standard reports, Spark will use additional bespoke reports to meet specific reporting requirements. Additional  Sage Coretime reporting will give them the ability to easily track non-billable work such as fee proposals and revisions, to track outstanding invoices versus paid, and to understand budget versus actuals and profitability at both project level and RIBA stage.

SPARK Architects implementation was successfully completed at their offices in Shanghai by Onesys and training was tailored to their needs to ensure they were off to a flying start with their new software in 2013.
