“Wellington Town Council is the largest Town/Parish Council in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin. The population is approx. 23,000 and the precept for the current year (2012/13) is approx. £300,000. There are three admin staff, three highways staff and one Town Manager on the payroll. We value our working with Telford and Wrekin Borough Council on partnership projects, do a great deal to promote the town to tourists (we are a Walkers are Welcome town) and have recently seen our town centre upgraded and new civic offices built.

The Town Council were looking for a comprehensive quality software package to update the way in which the Accounts were kept. Our criteria and main aim was to introduce reliable, good quality and comprehensive software for the Town Council accounts.

The previous Clerk and Responsible Finance Officer was instrumental in the sourcing and installation of the software chosen. So whilst it was a “fait accompli” 
it is an excellent system and one which I wouldn’t want to change. I have grown up with it and found the staff of RBS to be unfailingly efficient, friendly, professional and knowledgeable in everything they do. They are a highly competent team and I particularly value the training sessions they provide towards the end of each financial year.

The system we have in place is one with which both the Town Council and I are extremely satisfied with and we have no plans to change any of it”.
