Why work with Amethyst?
Some thoughts from our Managing Director
Since 1991 Amethyst has been working with businesses all over the UK. We offer the very best solutions to help run your business.
Without doubt, choosing new business finance software is hard, and choosing who to work with is even harder. It's little wonder that many companies who know they really should make a change decide it is too daunting, and continue as they are. Manual processes continue to be used, data is often duplicated, and staff have to spend time rekeying. And all that has to be checked and double-checked. Perhaps some of this rings true for you?
I have often heard people say "better the devil you know", and in some ways we can all agree with that. That said, at some point you do have to make that leap - and when you do then how do you choose a supplier?
An internet search of ‘choosing new finance software’ (or similar words) will bring up pages and pages from lots of different software houses, with 4, 6 or 12 steps on how to do this. All very well, but none of them say HOW to do it – and by that I mean :
How do you know the software is going to work for you?
How do you differentiate between suppliers – when they are all saying that they can do it?
How you do decide what you need if you don’t know what is available?
A really good solutions provider will show you things that you know you need – and some things that you didn’t know that you DO need. And often the latter is the the one that helps you decide what software and which supplier.
Amethyst is now 29 years old. That gives us a lot of knowledge and experience about what customers want, and we offer advice and suggestions to our customers on a very regular basis. However, without exception, we learn something new on every new project.
Without exception, every customer IS unique.
Many tell us that they are, and show us the things that only they do, but quite a few will say that they work just like everyone else. What we try to do is to bring out those unique areas and use our software and solutions to enhance the way you work.
