Compleat Software also announces a further GBP340k of working capital from the Stockford Group to support the significant demand for Compleat e-procurement and expenses software.

Neil Robertson, CEO of Compleat Software, comments, The reseller community is already experiencing a growth in new sales deferrals as prospective customers start to hang onto their cash, perpetuating the general business decline. The finance director's focus and priorities have changed - their priority is the conservation and maximisation of cash, and we are running the Spend Control Workshops to show the benefits of commitment accounting. This downturn is of particular concern to many accountancy and ERP resellers, as changing an accounting system is often seen as a discretionary spend - which gets shelved. Yet those same resellers are extremely well placed to exploit the new demands for commitment accounting and improved financial control by expanding their existing expertise and financial knowledge into e-procurement. Compleat offers the ideal proposition for partners - a compelling solution that a significant proportion of their customers will understand and engage with that leverages the knowledge and experience of the partner's staff.

Neil Robertson, CEO of Compleat Software concludes, Compleat offers a very compelling proposition to both finance directors and channel partners that are particularly relevant in a recession when cash becomes king. The new funding and growth of the Compleat Software partner base provides the ideal platform to continue our rapid expansion, including additional Spend Control Workshops to help business to understand the benefits of and achieve commitment accounting.

Compleat is a mature and fully-proven solution with a customer base that spans multiple vertical markets such as Financial Services, Sport / Event, Design, Property Development and Property Management, Education, Retail and Hospitality. In excess of GBP3billion is spent annually by over 3,000 users running Compleat Spend Control, from smaller operations right through to household names.
