Headquartered in Birmingham, Clearabee is the UK’s largest man and van rubbish removal company. A fast growing, dynamic company it has over 300 staff and operates more than 100 vehicles.
The rapid growth experienced by Clearabee, has been recognised through its inclusion in The Financial Times 1,000 list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies.
The accounting package used by Clearabee since its inception in 2012 was struggling to cope with the rapid expansion rate. The business needed to process a high volume of invoices, listing thousands of line items and it was proving difficult to make bulk payments. Daniel Long, Managing Director explains, “We’re growing into a large company and our accounting package was designed for small businesses, not a large national company with hundreds of staff and thousands of customers.”
Daniel began to source a new scalable Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution that would grow with the business in the medium to long term. Sage 200 was shortlisted because many of the finance team at Clearabee had positive experiences of using Sage in former organisations. Daniel had confidence in the Sage brand, a name synonymous with accounting software, leading him to source a local, reputable Sage Business Partner. Subsequently Daniel contacted CPiO to make an appointment with one of its Sage Business Consultants.
Upon meeting with CPiO, Daniel and his team made the decision to buy Sage 200 Professional quite quickly. He explains, “Once we saw a demo of Sage 200cloud, it totally matched our expectations. The consultant had a deep technical knowledge of the system, we could tell straight away that he knew what he was talking about. It gave us the assurance that not only was Sage 200cloud right for our business, but it gave us the confidence that we’d chosen the right partner to work with to implement the solution.”
A Business Cloud solution, Sage 200cloud Professional is modern, intuitive and easy to use. Having access to information, anywhere in the UK in real time will aid Clearabee’s national operation and help the company focus on achieving its business ambitions.
With Clearabee further cementing its position in the waste market by winning prestigious contracts including Co-op, Homeserve and Wren Kitchens, Daniel is happy that Sage 200cloud will enable the business to respond quickly to opportunities and get the insights required. “I know that Sage 200cloud is scalable and will manage the complex reporting and cash flow projections that will be needed when dealing with large corporate organisations”.
