The team have supported many important projects over their history. These include the Scottish Parliament, the Edinburgh Tattoo, Roseisle Whisky distillery, Glasgow’s 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Cairngorm Funicular Railway, the SSE Hydro, Murrayfield Stadium, the Edinburgh Trams, the Lanark Mart, the new Queensferry Crossing, the Kelpies project and many more.


With two locations, Elgin and Cumbernauld, traceability of items and the ability to track a customer’s job is paramount.

The Results – A Big Win for All

“Our previous system was long overdue an upgrade. The new NAV solution is a revelation and there is no part of the business that hasn’t benefitted from the improvements in visibility and the simplicity and logic of the new data processes.”

Case Study Video


“We looked at a number of systems from glorified accounts packages to VERY expensive ERP solutions and Microsoft Dynamics NAV quickly stood out as having the potential to deliver the must-haves we needed.  Once we got into detailed discussions with Turnkey’s team, we realised they had the depth of knowledge and experience to understand our requirements.  Turnkey’s consulting team worked closely with a number of key people at Highland to ensure the important functions were met.”

– Robin Steel, Financial Director

“We offer an Xpress, 24-hour turnaround service which is invaluable to our customers. Having a view on our workload, and being able to quickly adapt and re-schedule jobs were critical. Microsoft Dynamics NAV gives us that flexibility.

– Geoff Crowley, Managing Director
