Who are DCPI?
DCPI is an international film mastering and digital film distributor to the UK market — supplying cinema giants such as VUE, ODEON and Cineworld film copies for big screen cinema viewing. They're based near London Heathrow with long standing connections and partnerships with the Bollywood film industry.
DCPI previously used Sage 50 for accounting, but they found the process of updating accounts labour-intensive and manual.
From Sage 50...
Sage50 lead to slow monthly and year-end accounts preparation for the previous bookkeeper and accountant. They found the system cumbersome relative the transaction volumes and wanted to change.
... to Sage Business Cloud
We helped DCPI to transition on to Sage Business Cloud (formerly SageOne) on 1st April 2016. In addition to Sage Business Cloud, we implemented AutoEntry in July 2017. This was to ease the paperwork burden for company directors.
SageOne and AutoEntry is a major timesaver and so easy to use - much easier than putting invoices in manually."
Changing accounting system required a full migration of previous financials overnight on 31st March 2016 for a successful Go-Live on 1st April 2016. Migrations require competent professionals adept in handling large data sets to ensure integrity is maintained and proven. Then there's training for all users to make sure they are up to speed and can hit the ground running with the new system.
