The Centre for Alternative Technology

The Centre for Alternative Technology is an educational charity dedicated to researching and communicating solutions for environmental change.

Director of Finance Paul Booth shares his experience of upgrading their Sage system and moving to private cloud hosting with Datel.

Datel customer since 2012.

An experience of partnership with Datel

When Paul joined The Centre for Alternative Technology in 2018, he faced a technology challenge; an unsupported version of Sage 200, a looming Making Tax Digital deadline, and outdated system hardware.

Paul turned to Datel for help and found the partnership enabled him to move at pace and adopt new technology, all without hiring additional resource to get them through the project.

“Datel provides a combination of really good advice, along with a bespoke service. We know at times there's issues at our side, but where a lot of other organisations would have just said, ‘this is the solution’, Datel listens to us, and provides flexible support, rather than just selling us something.”
