GDK GroupBuilding strong foundations for the future with MYOB Advanced
GDK were having issues with their current ERP system, but found that MYOB Advanced provided the high end functionality they were used to, but at a more competitive price. End of month consolidations have become simpler and the cloud-based functionality has had a significant impact on the group.
Who are GDK Group?
GDK Group are a multi-disciplined architectural construction and joinery manufacturer. They specialise in acoustic panelling, customised design finishes and the manufacture of timber wall and ceiling panels. They operate over the South East Asia and Oceanic region and have a 20-year history of excellence in their projects.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
GDK were previously using NetSuite, however, the cost proved to be too much of a burden, especially when trying to cater for the multiple companies in their group. Because of the inflexible licensing and the setup of the company structure within NetSuite, the software was actually adding work for the administration team – not the desired effect from your ERP system.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced was chosen as it was cloud-based and could also handle all of their required functionality such as: multiple branches, projects, and job costing. MYOB Advanced was also at a better price point and had much more flexibility in the licensing setup.
How are they now?
GDK have benefited from the visibility of real time data across the group. They have also automated a number of previously manual tasks, which saves time and increases overall productivity. By redeploying these resources, they are able to better focus on what has made their business so successful in the past, and set the group up for increased success in the future.
