Doolan Plumbing

MYOB Advanced Construction gives Doolan Plumbing increased visibility and project costing automation.

Doolan Plumbing struggled with the manual processes involved with project accounting in their old system. MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) improved efficiency, saving 48 hours a month in office-based administration work.

Who is Doolan Plumbing?

Doolan Plumbing specialises in all aspects of the plumbing trade, including design, construction, and maintenance for both private and civil projects. Over the years they established a trusted reputation with their clients for delivering a quality service. This encompassed all aspects of the client’s needs while keeping commercial viability in mind.

What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced Construction (Acumatica) and MYOB Advanced Payroll (Acumatica)?

Over the years, Doolan Plumbing has successfully used MYOB AccountRight to track basic costs and budgets. However, it needed more project costing functionality to manage the expanding operations. Tasks such as comparing labour estimates versus actuals or drilling down into project costs required manual data manipulation and extensive use of Excel spreadsheets. MYOB AccountRight had little automation to support this process efficiently. It also took three project managers four hours a week each to cross-reference prices and sign off over 500 invoices in a regular month. Recognising the need for a more comprehensive solution, Doolan Plumbing spearheaded the upgrade to their construction software. After an in-depth discovery process, they chose MYOB Advanced Construction (Acumatica) as the best fit for their requirements.

What changes followed the decision to implement MYOB Advanced (Acumatica)?

The implementation of MYOB Advanced Construction revolutionised Doolan Plumbing’s operations. It became their powerful platform for data visibility and operational efficiency. Every cost could be meticulously assigned to specific projects and sections, allowing for detailed analysis and cost tracking. Automation and integration capabilities streamlined processes, eliminating manual data manipulation and significantly reducing administrative burdens. Real-time reporting empowered project managers with actionable insights, facilitating better decision-making and resource allocation.

Where are they now?

Accurate financial reporting in MYOB Advanced Construction (Acumatica) has facilitated more effective tendering and pricing strategies and simplified complex compliance requirements. Precise labour expense tracking in MYOB Advanced Payroll has enhanced project costing accuracy and overall profitability. The elimination of manual administrative tasks has freed up valuable time for project managers, enabling them to focus on-site. This led to higher-quality outcomes and increased overall productivity. With MYOB Advanced, Doolan Plumbing has not only streamlined operations but has also positioned itself for sustained growth and success in the competitive plumbing industry.
