The Keystone Group has chosen to implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV from Sysco Software to tighten up its business processes and give better visibility to the business to enable it to maintain its position as the UK and Ireland’s largest Steel Lintel manufacturer and Europe’s fastest growing Roof Window manufacturer.
The short history of The Keystone Group has been one of relentless expansion and continuous innovation whilst redefining the meaning of service in the construction industry. Production facilities in Birmingham, Cwmbran, Cookstown and Poland provide an efficient, flexible and ergonomic working environment, which is part of the culture of quality and service at Keystone.
Whilst their old system was functional it doesn’t operate in a Microsoft Windows environment. The information flow through the system was manual and time consuming, while data analysis and interrogation cumbersome. Keystone needed a system that was familiar and user-friendly.
After research and looking at a number of alternative systems Keystone decided on Microsoft Dynamics NAV and selected Sysco Software as their implementation partner. They were impressed by Sysco’s transparency and attention to detail and, perhaps most importantly, with their vast experience in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

“Sysco have provided us with a Project Brief that gives us confidence in the project. We have met with all the critical team members and are confident that they have the track record and skill set which is conducive to meeting our needs,” said Gerard O’Callaghan, Group Finance Director at The Keystone Group.
“Greater visibility of your business is essential in today’s market place, and with Microsoft Dynamics NAV Keystone will now have access to real time information available to them at all times. They will use NAV to measure key KPI’s using a dashboard approach tailored to the needs of their individual users and the business units,” said Ian Topping, Dynamics Commercial Lead at Sysco Software.
Sysco continues to demonstrate expansion and emphasise their position as the top Microsoft Dynamics partner in Ireland. After introducing Microsoft Dynamics to Ireland, Sysco has built up the largest Microsoft Dynamics client base on the island of Ireland with over 300 installations to their name.
