An independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights. They were searching for an online branch accounting system to support volunteer branch treasurers with varied skills, which could be accessed in the cloud. CAMRA approached Skynet based on a recommendation from another Skynet client who uses SkyBranch.
“We were able to replace individually developed Excel spreadsheets and paper records with a centrally supported software solution, producing consistent, standardised reports based on a common chart of accounts. The software is intuitive and easy to use for non-accountants. As a voluntary organisation, visibility of income, costs and funds is vital so the ability to collate and analyse information efficiently will be a crucial pillar of our operation. As well as the product itself, Skynet’s responsive and flexible service approach has allowed us to develop the right solution for CAMRA.”

“I have to say I took to LOMAS easily enough once I had been to the training sessions. The system is easy to operate and understand and at the touch of a button gives you the information required instead of turning pages in ledgers. No more time-consuming frustrating columns to formulate and calculate manually.”
“Monthly reconciliation with bank statements couldn’t be easier and I am looking forward to end-of-year-accounts simplicity. I was not even competent on Excel but LOMAS really has changed my way of thinking about the accounts and once I got over the fear that I couldn’t break the system then I just took it on board and went with it. Don’t want to go back now.”
