One of Scotland's largest commercial water and waste services suppliers signs up to online software providers Twinfield, which could save it 50,000 a year

Business Stream expects to save 50,000 a year using new online accounting software.

Twinfield has won a contract to supply one of Scotland's largest commercial water and waste services providers Business Stream with finance IT.

Business Stream believes it will save money because the deal allows it to function without an in-house IT team.

"Twinfield stood out as providing the most value for money because for a single monthly subscription we have real-time management information available through a web browser," said Johanna Dow, finance director of Business Stream.

?When looking for an accounting solution, we researched a number of different products including some large players such as SAP.

"In contrast, the SAP software would have cost us substantially more to implement and there would have been ongoing support and maintenance costs."
