How has Maestro
helped Cornwall Gravel?
Cornwall Gravel’s old system was not Windows-based and was outdated. They needed a system that would save money and time, make it possible to email invoices and statements, and provide faster reporting and continual upgrades. After they demoed maestro*ERP at the CON/AGG trade show in Las Vegas, along with a number of other software companies, the choice was clear. Any hesitation about the change was soon appeased by Maestro’s excellent support through the transition process.
maestro*ERP increases the company’s efficiency by making it a lot easier to track and access the information that the team needs. It allows them to create customized reports. It saves them significant time in their Health and Safety documentation tracking and makes it easier to go back and make changes to payroll when required. It has also reduced paper waste. The team used to print everything. Now, most of their documentation is digital, making it secure and easy to find.
