Macron Music

MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) Business strikes the right chord with Macron Music

Discover how one of Australia’s most respected music retailers re-tuned their organisation to meet the challenges of a changing business environment.

Who is Macron Music?

When Macron Music opened its first store in the 1970s, it was the go-to place for local musicians and music-lovers. After a change of ownership in 2015, the business experienced rapid growth and expanded to three physical locations and a new eCommerce store. Now, they are one of Greater Melbourne’s premier music stores and Australia’s most trusted musical instrument webstore.

What Catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced (Acumatica)?

While Macron Music was finding its feet amid its expansion, the pandemic hit and made things even more complicated. Like many retail-based businesses, they experienced high customer demand and low access to supply. The team grew frustrated due to their inability to access data and maintain real-time visibility across their operations. They did not initially consider upgrading their business management system, but they soon realised that it was a necessity to maintain their business operations efficiently. Macron Music set its sights on an integrated system that could provide real-time access to data and information they currently lacked. MYOB Advanced (Acumatica), being cloud-based, was the perfect solution to allow the team to have access to everything, anywhere at any time.

What changes followed the decision to implement MYOB Advanced (Acumatica)?

After implementing MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) Business and MYOB Advanced Payroll (Acumatica), Macron Music benefited from consolidated, real-time reporting across their physical and eCommerce stores. This significantly reduced the time and cost of managing finances and operations, allowing the team to focus on growing their business. The ease and ability to integrate MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) Business with their existing e-commerce, inventory, and POS platform made the transition simple. Data from their existing systems was automatically replicated in MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) with AI mapping. This created a single integrated source of truth for the organisation. With MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) Business and MYOB Advanced Payroll (Acumatica), the team can have multiple users log into the platform from anywhere, anytime, with ease.

How are Macron Music now?

MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) has been a welcomed change for the entire Macron Music team. They are experiencing improvements at every stage of their business process. Implementing MYOB Advanced (Acumatica) enabled daily reconciliation of accounts rather than monthly, ensuring extra fees and surcharges from the eCommerce transactions were accounted for. This process was also able to be automated, reducing the risk of error and improving accuracy. The finance team can now get real-time Profit and Loss statements to track processes on a monthly or yearly timeline. Working with their implementation partner, Macron Music was able to customise payroll workflows to easily and quickly move between each of their stores and perform payroll processes all in under 10 minutes.
