Allure BathroomsAllure Bathrooms grow into the future with MYOB Advanced
Allure Bathrooms’ rapid expansion and multiple stores necessitated the implementation of a connected ERP solution – MYOB Advanced. The added automation, visibility, and control has allowed the opportunity for growth into the future.
Who are Allure Bathrooms?
Allure Bathrooms is a successful and growing importer, retailer, and distributor of bathroom supplies. They are passionate about supplying the best quality bathroom products at an affordable price. They currently have four retail showrooms and a distribution centre across Melbourne, with plans to expand in the future.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Allure required an ERP system that could handle the inter-branch mapping, and seamlessly move stock between their stores.
An initial, albeit temporary, option was to use TradeGecko© with a Xero integration. However, the data only flowed one way through that system which was not ideal. Couple that with a reliance on Excel spreadsheets to manually enter and manage purchase orders, and Allure were spending far too long being hands on with these processes.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced brought a customised, automated solution to Allure bathrooms. Their implementation included simple adjustments to quote and sales order screens, and the addition of low stock level warning signs. Restricted user access was also deployed for default unit prices, shipment confirmations and credit memos, allowing greater control from behind the scenes and better accessibility to their data in real-time on the sales floor.
How are they now?
Having MYOB Advanced at Allure Bathrooms has laid the foundations for the future growth of the company. They save time when creating purchase orders directly from quotes, keeping track of partial shipments, and how much a customer has paid. Restrictions on pricing mean that staff can no longer jeopardise margins by overriding the set prices.
