What our customers say

  • Dayta are always available to support you with efficiency and a smile. The Academy Reports are excellent and recognised by our accountants who can easily create our year end accounts from the system. Having used Sage and the Academy Reporting I haven’t found any limitations in its use and would be happy to recommend the Dayta system to other Academies.

    Eva Evans

    School Business Manager | Bentley Heath School
  • We started as a single secondary school academy and have grown over a period of 4 years to a Multi Academy Trust. Dayta Designs have been with us from the outset giving excellent support and guidance on the Sage Finance and Academy Reports packages. As our Trust continues to grow and our requirements change it is refreshing to work with professionals who want to solve our development needs.

    Mrs S Thomas

    Accounting Manager | Community Academies Trust
  • The moment we met the team at Dayta Designs, we knew that we were going to receive the services of a competent, knowledgeable and responsive organization. They clearly demonstrated the capability and desire to continually develop their product and provide ongoing support and improvement – a feature we found traditionally absent in the educational finance software package market.

    Adam Miles

    The Woodlands Academy
  • I know that there is support at the end of the telephone if required. From day one, Dayta Designs have provided a friendly and customer-focused service. I am happy to recommend them.

    Fiona Mason

    Business Manager | Hockley Heath Academy
  • Dayta Designs have provided us with an excellent service that has met all our software needs. I would definitely recommend them to other businesses.

    David Silvester

    Financial Controller | Waddesdon The Rothschild Collection

    Mike Cussell

    Managing Director | B-Loony
  • We’ve now been with Dayta Designs for a few years and during this time they have always impressed me. Not only do they have a great knowledge of the Sage packages, they offer a great service, always helpful, efficient and always deal promptly with my enquiries. In summary we are very pleased with the service they offer.

    Chris Thomas

    Director | R&JP Internation
  • We have been using Sage 200 since 2011 and are very pleased with it. We chose to move from Sage 50 to Sage 200 because the latter has a lot of much better features and was perfect for our needs. The migration was completed quickly and efficiently. They are quick to respond and very efficient at what they do – we have had no problems with our choice!

    Karen Allen

    Finance Manager | Halma
  • We implemented Sage 200 and the associated Project Accounting module to enable us to accommodate the growing size and complexity of our business and, at every stage in the process, Dayta Designs impressed us with their obvious expertise and knowledge. Over time they have become one of our most trusted and important business partners.

    Chris Calnan

    Finance Lead | PharmiWeb Solutions
  • I have been very impressed with the service received from Dayta. They were most helpful at the setting up of the project, suggesting various solutions to our requirements and, in particular, have been extremely accommodating when dealing with our bespoke reporting requirements.

    Gill Gimes

    Myton Hospices
  • We wanted to upgrade from Sage 50 to Sage 200 and approached Dayta, who calmly reassured us that our plans could work and offered workable solutions to our more demanding requirements. Dayta delivered the project on time, provided appropriate support to our staff throughout and continue to deliver a professional and knowledgeable service to us. I thoroughly recommend them.

Looking for bespoke development for your Sage system?

Unlock the full potential of your Sage software with our custom-built add-ons, precisely designed to match your specific needs.
1

Discovery & Analysis

This initial phase involves understanding your organisation's unique needs, challenges, and processes. It often includes reviewing the existing Sage setup, discussing specific requirements, and analysing how a bespoke enhancement could provide a solution. The goal of this stage is to create a clear specification for what the add-on must do.
2

Design & Development

Based on the specifications defined in the discovery phase, our development team designs and builds the add-on. This includes coding, integrating with existing systems, and ensuring that the add-on meets all the outlined requirements. Regular updates and checkpoints are crucial in this phase to ensure the project stays on track.
3

Testing & Deployment

The new add-on is thoroughly tested to ensure it works as expected and doesn't conflict with the existing system. Any bugs or issues discovered during testing are fixed. Once everything is working correctly, the add-on then goes live. This stage also usually includes training for your team on how to use the new add-on and providing documentation.
