Contract management solution assists growth plans

Churchill Services Group has chosen Templa-CMS as the contract management solution to assist in furthering its ambitious growth plans. Churchill’s clear vision is to be the leading and most innovative national supplier of bundled soft services in the UK.

Established in 1978, it has successfully implemented a strategy that never allows standards in its contracts to lapse. With over 5000 cleaning and 1000 security staff, Churchill has chosen a solution that will support its future growth plans. Currently, growth has left it with a number of different systems used for managing contracts, payroll, finance and other key business activities, across different UK locations. Templa-CMS will provide the platform to consolidate all contract activity and financial control across all locations, delivering immediate benefits with reduced administration overheads and eradicating data duplication.

Nicki Francis, group finance director of Churchill, who led the software selection process, said: "Our key drivers for change included not only the need for data centralisation of both companies, but a management system that improved the whole process control across our business. The success of our growth has brought its own administrative challenges, but with a single, streamlined system that takes control but is under our control, we’re fully confident of how we will manage new growth in the future."

Rick Stoor, MD of Templa, said: "We are very excited about working with the Churchill Services Group. Templa-CMS was developed and written for customers just like them and our project team has already started planning the implementation."
