What our clients say

Increasing the University’s capitalisation threshold from £1,000 to £10,000 also required a system for distinguishing between balance sheet and non-balance sheet items. The implementation of RAM’s software alongside new methods of labelling and handheld scanning devices met this challenge.

We are already realising time saving efficiencies through the use of the new system. For example, in preparation for year-end, we will be able to produce the 2014/15 depreciation charge and fixed assets note for the accounts in a matter of minutes, a job which normally takes us many hours to complete.

It is so reassuring to finally have a true picture of what the college actually owns and where the items are located. Following the initial asset tagging and data collection exercise recently undertaken by RAM, we will now be able to confidently provide our auditors with detailed and up-to-date records of all our asset and inventory items, something we were previously unable to do.
