Broadway LiquorSpeed up your processes and give you company the room to grow with MYOB Advanced
Broadway Liquor’s old accounting software was out of date and slow. They had issues moving stock between warehouses, as well as the industry-specific taxes that they needed to account for. The move to MYOB Advanced gave them the speed and flexibility they needed with the custom functionality to support their complex business.
Who is Broadway Liquor?
Broadway Liquor has existed in the Australian market since 1981 when they began importing Spanish wines. They have expanded its operations over the last 40 years to sell to bottle shops, restaurants, and other fields in the hospitality industry. They are a nationwide business with different warehousing and distribution needs.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
The alcohol industry is affected by several taxes and fees, so Broadway Liquor needed a capable system to handle these specific requirements. Their old system was becoming quite slow, unable to handle their multiple warehouse sites, with different sales prices, discount groups, and sales representatives. It required a significant effort to verify that everything was being entered into their system correctly. MYOB Advanced was chosen as it offered good value for money, and was easy to use without compromising its reporting power. However, most importantly it could meet all their industry-specific requirements.
What changes followed the decision?
For a growing family business with a sales team that often works remotely, the cloud-based access was a big upside. MYOB Advanced has undergone in-depth customisation during implementation to account for the industry-specific elements such as WET (Wine Equalisation Tax). MYOB Advanced can handle and account for many different complex taxes, even submitting Taxable Payments Annual Reports (TPAR) directly to the ATO.
How are they now?
While Broadway Liquor initially used both systems in parallel during the transition phase, they are now one hundred per cent moved over to MYOB Advanced Business. They have enjoyed the transferrals of stock between warehouses, noting dramatic time saves over their old processes but also a reduction in errors. They are able to access key information from anywhere, and at any time, speeding up their processes and improving customer service. They are focused on growth into the future and the power they can still see in MYOB Advanced.
