From my first computer, the Sinclair ZX81, and my subsequent Atari 800 I found the challenge of bending a piece of machinery to my will exciting, especially the challenge of getting the best from limited resources. This all had a major effect on my career as my natural talent with computers led to accountancy and finance roles with an emphasis on computer skills. So through a variety of jobs some of my business systems development achievements include:
long term Construction W.I.P. valuations • complete Fixed Asset Management System in dBase • labour costing for large R & D organisation • financial planning and forecasting • statutory and management accounting information systems • specification and implementation of bespoke financial systems • innumerable complex spreadsheet solutions • costing systems • customisation of packaged software * business process procedures • testing case procedures • functional specifications
Packaged systems with which I have detailed knowledge include:
|I qualified as an SAP Finance & Controlling Certified Consultant in 1997 and have over ten years of SAP implementation and configuration skills across a variety of industry and service sectors.|
|I have practical skills with Sage Line 50 versions 2011, 2014 and 2015, including Chart of Accounts design, VAT Reporting, integration with Excel spreadsheets and ODBC database connectivity as well as report desigm.|
|I delivered thirteen implementations of SunSystems SunAccount and SunBusiness v4 by Systems Union, across eleven countries, including assisting Systems Union with the porting of the product to ICL Unix hardware. This product was at the time revolutionary with it's unified ledger systems and use of plain text files for rapid deployment of customising and organisational change.|
Whether or not your particular system is listed above, my natural intuition and ability with computerised business systems can help me assist you in project management, pre-planning, implementation, business procedure procedures or even just operating your system.
