Summertown Interiors, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Deniz has been successfully using RIB CCS’s products, Candy and BuildSmart, for the last two years at Summertown Interiors; focusing on commercial, healthcare and retail-related fit-out projects. Summertown Interiors are well known within the UAE for delivering high-quality and sustainable workplace solutions. 

According to Deniz, Summertown Interiors have not only been empowered with tools for real-time ‘cost vs allowable’ comparisons, profitability analysis, and faster and more efficient decision-making; they have also successfully executed several large-scale projects for clients such as Takeda and the Government of Dubai Media Office.

In addition, this integrated ERP solution has led to significant time-savings, with month-end closings and audits now completed much faster than before, as well as increased accuracy when estimating. Deniz adds, “the safeguards that BuildSmart Procurement has in place, to prevent allowable rates and quantities being exceeded during purchasing, have also reduced failure costs.” 

Today, with BuildSmart forming the backbone of their financial management system and Candy as their primary estimation and project control resource, Deniz recommends RIB CCS to others because of the success experienced by Summertown Interiors and the fact that our software, “is developed by contractors for contractors.”
