Hentley FarmMYOB Advanced helps Hentley Farm from vine to table.
Covering the wine industry from grape to distribution, boutique winery Hentley Farm is a multifaceted business with complex system requirements. Their story is one of inspiring qualities, and technical success., highlighting the benefits they have derived from implementing MYOB Advanced.
Who are Hentley Farm?
Hentley Farm is a single estate, award winning winery set in the rolling hills in the west of the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Along with their boutique wine range, the business also incorporates a restaurant and cellar door, adding retail and hospitality to their total package.
What catalysed the switch?
The growing complexity of the business necessitated the upgrade to MYOB Advanced. Complicated work-arounds to track stock locations, and a reliance on spreadsheets lead to errors and a lack of faith in the final numbers. Significant manual input when working with the raw data meant the team was not able to finalise monthly board reports until 2-3 days before the end of the following month. Hentley Farm required a single system to manage data across their various facilities all in one place.
What changes followed the decision?
Although they looked at other solutions, Hentley Farm decided to implement MYOB Advanced as it offered them the right mix of functionality and flexibility. The streamlined automation from Advanced helped to speed up report generation, as well as eliminate errors. This gives their management better insights into the performance of the business.
How are they now?
After the implementation of MYOB Advanced, Hentley Farm immediately saw the benefits of using an up to date, flexible platform. They are able to generate reports at the press of a button, rather than working through days of manual data manipulation. The reduction in raw data manipulation has drastically reduced the error rate, and staff at every level of the business have heightened confidence when working with the outputs – leading to increased efficiency and customer service.
