AquathermInternational pipe manufacturers needed the power of MYOB Exo to improve their efficiency.
Aquatherm import custom manufactured pipes for their customers. They leverage MYOB Exo to gain better stock control, enhanced reporting, and better customer management.
Who are Aquatherm?
Aquatherm is the leading supplier of polypropylene pipe systems for the water and heating sectors. A global company, they import stock from overseas and distribute it across Australia. They have an expanded stock range covering an array of industries and uses and need to manage foreign exchange calculations.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Exo?
Aquatherm started to transition from MYOB Premier to MYOB Exo when they realised their old system could not handle the complexity of their company. They struggled with foreign currency conversions and could not mark custom costs like freight against a stock item in a purchase. Due to the difficulty in extracting information from their system, reports were often obsolete as soon as they were finished. Aquatherm desperately needed a better way to visualise and analyse their data.
What changes followed the decision for Aquatherm?
MYOB Exo’s stock system functionality was the standout attraction for Aquatherm. Their foreign exchange needs were also met by their new ERP. Thanks to its additional power, MYOB Exo could speed up its processing times, as it could not handle the high volume of data. The reporting capability was vastly superior to their old system, giving them greater analytical insight into their data.
How are they now?
The depth of reporting in MYOB Exo has made a significant impression and continues to give Aquatherm new ways to appreciate their position. They can calculate profitability by branch and location, something not possible in their old system. They could also leverage customisations, especially to the Retail and CRM modules. A more sophisticated level of stock reporting enables Aquatherm to differentiate between a stock that is landed and a stock still in transport. Their more sophisticated retail and CRM system allows them to set up customer rebate groups, special prices, and pre-payment arrangements – whilst reporting on all these transactions.
