What some of our customers have to say

How easy it to get started?

Getting started with Colony and couldn’t be easier. We work with you to get your data imported and up and running exactly as you want it to look and work. From there, you receive top-notch training and ongoing support directly from our team.

Why not have a read of Sue’s journey of working with MCPC to learn more…

When I took on the role of Allotments Officer nearly 10 years ago, I inherited a folder full of dog eared spreadsheets. Changes of tenants were done with tipex and biro and data about revenue and demand was impossible to determine.

It was clear that the modernisation of administering such a large service needed to be high priority. MCPC took what little data we had and set up the Colony Software with as much data as we could provide imported from the start.

It took time and care for us to develop that data further but revenue projections and demand trends are now available at the click of a mouse. The time and effort put in by MCPC at the outset was above and beyond what we expected and the quality of their service has in large part, determined how well the Colony system was embedded into the department.

Colony has become an indispensable and intrinsic part of the way we manage one of the largest allotment services in the country.
