Tate Bramald and CFDG SunSystems Promotion

11th January 2002

Tate Bramald Limited, a leading IT solutions provider to the Charity Sector, and the Charity Finance Directors' Group (CFDG) have teamed up to offer CFDG Members the opportunity to purchase and implement SunSystems financial and business management solutions at half price.

The fixed-price package from Tate Bramald includes single or multi-user license*, 1.5 days one to one implementation consultancy and comprehensive classroom training. SunSystems, the market-leading accountancy software, has a user base of more than 2000 charities worldwide and recently achieved the highest satisfaction ratings in a survey conducted by Charity Times. John Tate, Chairman at Tate Bramald comments:

"SunSystems is an excellent product fit for the sector and I am delighted that we are able to provide this solution in conjunction with CFDG. Smaller charities have complex accounting requirements but often believe they cannot afford to implement a market leading product such as SunSystems. We believe that the offer will make this option affordable to many more charities."

The robust and intuitive solution from SunSystems provides comprehensive SORP & SOFA reports that are simple to define & analyse, together with the latest commitment accounting and multi-currency capabilities. David Membrey, Deputy Director at Book Aid International has been using SunSystems with Tate Bramald for over three years;

"Despite being a relatively small charity, we find the multiple levels of analysis in Sun to be invaluable to the efficient running of our organisation. I am able to produce timely and meaningful reports by donor, by country and by project which is key to Book Aid International. Not only is the system very powerful but it has consistently evolved to match our changing requirements"

Shirley Scott, Chief Executive at CFDG is similarly also positive about the project and the impact that it will have upon CFDG members;

"CFDG members, who are the finance staff of the larger charities, will gain real benefit from this offer. It will help achieve our aim of improving financial management in charities by giving better information and analysis tools to increase control. Investment in IT is a major expense but vital for efficiency."

Tate Bramald is committed to making the implementation process seamless and cost-effective and for charities already using SunSystems Tate Bramald is able to offer additional user training, consultancy and support services to ensure that organisations can maximise the benefits from using the solution. In addition, Tate Bramald has developed a working template of SunSystems with set-up, data and reports specifically designed for charity organisations. Charities that are interested will have an opportunity to see SunSystems in action at one of Tate Bramald's forthcoming demonstration sessions.
