McMonagle Stone was established in 1988 by Dan McMonagle. Today, the company is still very much a family business and has become one of Ireland’s largest suppliers of natural decorative stone, product riven from the rugged landscape adjacent to Ireland’s Atlantic coastline.
At five quarries in Donegal, McMonagle Stone carefully extract and prepare unique and high quality natural slabs which they supply both nationally and around the world. With a challenging domestic economy, the focus in recent years has been on finding and driving their competitive edge and maintaining and growing a strong position in export markets, particularly in Europe, with exports to Asia growing each year. And it’s become increasingly important for them to deliver the very best in customer service.
McMonagle Stone had been using Sage 200 for many years. However, against the backdrop of an Irish economic crisis and
increasingly frustrated by their current supplier who wasn’t helping them to get the most from their system, they began a full
software review. As soon as they met K3, they realised that Sage 200, coupled with the outstanding support K3 offer, could in fact give them the control and insight they needed to drive their business forward.
Haes Systems requirements:
When the crash came in the Irish economy, McMonagle Stone needed a single, clear view of their business to help them decide where to put their focus. With clear analysis of which product lines were selling well and the margins on each product, they were able to effectively streamline their range. And with similar analysis of their sales team showing who was selling what to whom, they could offer appropriate support to drive excellent performance.
