Engel AustraliaAutomate and centralise your company data in MYOB Advanced
Engel Australia had stringent reporting requirements, being part of a publicly owned, overseas company. MYOB Advanced met its audit and governance needs while also supporting its nationwide distribution and retail network.
Who is Engel Australia?
Engel Australia produces portable fridges and freezers for your car or garage. They are owned by a publicly listed company in Japan but produce a product that is iconic in the Australian market. They manage warehouses all over Australia and supply some of the country’s largest retailers.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Engel was operating with financial software that was far better suited to a smaller company. They did not have timely access to their information and were keeping track of stock in the warehouse via faxed run-sheets. As they are also owned by a publicly listed company, they needed to follow strict reporting and audit compliance requirements, which made it increasingly difficult with their current software.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced could easily handle the high transaction numbers, as well as provide the flexibility, accessibility, and transparency that Engel needed. MYOB Advanced could also allow for an unlimited number of users, meaning that anyone in the company could access their data at any time, reducing the manual work done between locations.
How are they now?
The shift to the more intuitive, automated, and centralised system in MYOB Advanced has created astonishing time savings. They are looking at further improving their efficiency by creating a customer portal for their clients to log on and purchase stock. This would streamline the fulfilment process and save even more time. The cloud-based nature of MYOB Advanced also removes the location dependence of their old system.
How do I achieve successful implementation?
A successful implementation depends on managing 3 critical risks:
- Software Risk
- Implementer risk
