Specialist totalizator (tote) wagering business, Premier Gateway International (PGI), chose Aqilla over SunAccounts when replacing Sage for its company accounting. With effortless implementation and a low cost of ownership, Aqilla’s ability to integrate with other business apps pushed the decision over the line for Chief Operating Officer Damon Waddington. Integrating Aqilla with the company’s core line of business app has saved his team three days’ worth of administration every month end.

Aqilla is very user-friendly compared to other systems I’ve used in the past. I’ve trained people to use it and they pick it up straight away. ” - Damon Waddington, COO

PGI X AQILLA

 

Multicurrency handling is essential for PGI

PGI is a licensed tote hub based in the Isle of Man. The company’s proprietary technology gives clients, both private and corporate, access to larger tote pools in major markets including Australia, South Africa, France, Dubai, Hong Kong, the Americas, Singapore, the UK and Ireland. For its small number of premium clients, PGI provides access to all of these totes. 

Aqilla’s ability to handle multicurrency accounting was an obvious requirement when looking to replace Sage, as was the ability to produce simple, consolidated accounts to a tight deadline required by the company’s Australian parent.  

 

Integration is key to reducing effort

A purpose-built SQL database stores all wagers, wagering processes and client activity. Connecting Aqilla’s cloud-based accounting system to this core business app means key accounting data is seamlessly shared with Aqilla for reporting purposes, removing the need to create journals in Aqilla itself. “I just press a button and Aqilla imports all the sales journals at month end via the API. By 11 o’clock the next day, the month end tasks are complete, saving us around three days of manual administrationthat we had to endure with Sage,” Damon confirms.
