The Jojoba CompanyMYOB Advanced Business gave The Jojoba Company the ability to grow and realise its ambition
The Jojoba Company’s first-ever crop was planted on a hunch, but its success was no accident. The Jojoba Company’s business flourished with the support of MYOB Advanced and a proven product.
Who is The Jojoba Company?
The Jojoba Company grows, formulates, and packages safe, sustainable, ethical, and effective natural skincare that naturally delivers transformative results. They manage every step of the process, from the farm to the warehouse to the store, while ensuring each bottle is of the highest quality. The Jojoba Company are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, Australian made & owned, and only use the most powerful botanically derived ingredients.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Over the last 13 years, The Jojoba Company has continued to grow, pivoting from brick-and-mortar retail stores to eCommerce and now pursuing a global strategy. Their old business management process was spread across an ecosystem of independent software. Departments were unable to access the holistic, connected view of the business that they required. They needed centralised business management software to help them achieve their ambitions, and an MYOB Advanced Implementation was the right fit.
What changes followed the decision?
By trusting the advice of their software partner, The Jojoba Company could undertake the implementation with confidence. Using MYOB Advanced, The Jojoba Company’s warehouse team have removed the tedium of manual data entry and duplication. They no longer waste time scrolling through the entire product database. They can find what they need with just part of a product name or SKU. The MYOB Advanced integration with Shopify streamlines online ordering. MYOB Advanced Business integrations remove the need for manual duplication of data and allow the warehouse team to work more collaboratively. Anywhere, anytime access via the cloud improves the visibility of real-time data for the sales team when travelling on the road.
How are they now?
Through working closely with their software partner Kilimanjaro Consulting, Jojoba was able to reduce and automate a large number of their daily tasks, helping to ease the overall workload. Our skilled team was able to truly understands their business and customise the platform to suit their needs. MYOB Advanced has been built for the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere and at any time. With real-time visibility over sales reporting the marketing and sales teams to know where to focus attention – retailers that need additional support, product lines that need a marketing push, or how certain promotions have performed. All this together helps ensure the company spends its budget wisely and gets maximum ROI from MYOB Advanced.
