Living My WayKilimanjaro Consulting successfully implement MYOB Advanced Business and MYOB Advanced Payroll for Living My Way
Living My Way make it their business to support people with disabilities to live independent, self-driven lives. So, we made sure that their MYOB Advanced platform could support them, with a focus on building their core Business and Payroll modules to automate processes so that they could focus on their members.
Who is Living My Way?
Living My Way is a Not-For-Profit (NFP) organisation that has been supporting those with disabilities since 1992. They enable their members to live self-directed, independent lives by empowering them to find support workers to fit their needs – so they can live their own way. Living My Way operates across NSW, ACT, and QLD with approximately 370 members. Their future looks bright in this evolving and changing disability landscape and with the support of MYOB Advanced, they look forward to continuing to support their members for many more years to come.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
It had become clear that Living My Way’s old MYOB AccountRight software was no longer suitable for their needs. With multiple sources of funding, the organisation needed to be able to filter and report on many different revenue streams – a process that had previously been done manually. The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) added even more complexity to their systems and processes.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced was the platform of choice for Living My Way. It was able to meet their reporting requirements, as well as give them flexibility and scalability to foster future growth. MYOB Advanced was also cost-effective compared to other solutions on the market, an important criterion in the NFP space. They engaged Kilimanjaro Consulting as their implementation partners of choice. Living My Way needed a partner who was experienced in their industry, as well as able to implement both MYOB Advanced Business and MYOB Advanced Payroll.
How are they now?
MYOB Advanced Business allows the finance team to bulk-process invoices – a process that they previously completed manually. Almost immediately following implementation, the team was able to save 1.5FTE and reallocate these resources to other parts of the organisation. The implementation of MYOB Advanced Payroll has also improved its efficiency. Claims to the NDIS are processed automatically with no manual input from the payroll team following a detailed integration with Living My Way’s timesheets software and the NDIS.
Kilimanjaro Consulting went above and beyond for Living My Way to make sure their system would support them in the same way that they support their members. By automating their manual processes and integrating systems to improve efficiency, Kilimanjaro Consulting and MYOB Advanced have allowed Living My Way the freedom and flexibility to run their organisation their way.
