Lifestyle Home MaintenanceAutomating tasks with MYOB Advanced Business helped Lifestyle Home Maintenance to improve efficiency.
From lawn care to landscape maintenance, Lifestyle Home Maintenance’s complex structure made efficient work increasingly challenging. Following the implementation of MYOB Advanced Business, they could streamline workflows and spend their time focusing on more critical areas of the company.
Who is Lifestyle Home Maintenance?
Lifestyle Home Maintenance (LHM) is a Brisbane-based property maintenance company dedicated to servicing the real estate and body corporate industries. Within three months, the business went from offering basic lawn care to many maintenance services across its network of property managers. In a few short years, the business has grown exponentially. They deploy a growing team to all parts of Brisbane, helping their clients with various jobs and projects. This field team is supported by an administration team that manages enquiries, quotes, bookings, and payments at the highest level of service.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced Business?
The original goal of LHM was to account for the high-volume, low-value jobs that were not currently being serviced in the market. However, the swift growth of the company and the sheer volume of work were causing strains on their system. They needed a new solution that was able to grow alongside them. When they explored all of the features of MYOB Advanced, LHM knew that this was the future-proof solution that could meet their needs.
What changes followed the implementation?
Automation was a considerable benefit to LHM’s administration team. Processes that would take 40 minutes on average were now done in approximately 5. Reports that would take 8 hours to complete were now done in less than a minute, all at the push of a button.
LHM also required a product that worked with their operational service, ServiceM8. With MYOB Advanced Business, it became easier to collate client reports and examine more specific areas of each property. With these detailed insights, easily accessible from the system, LHM could make better decisions and drive growth.
How are they now?
Following the MYOB Advanced Business implemented and taking advantage of the benefits of automation, the administrative workload has been reduced by 80%. LHM is now better equipped to take on the sheer volume of jobs and can even look to expand its service offering. Today, the business can increase the size of its field team and is now on track to expand into other areas of Australia – all while being fully supported by MYOB Advanced Business.
