Marsden MaritimeMYOB Advanced is a future proof, integrated system for the future
Marsden Maritime had data across several areas of the company stored in a very niche and unique software. MYOB Advanced brought this data together and gave them a robust and future-proof solution for the growth of the business.
Who is Marsden Maritime?
Marsden Maritime is a complex company that oversees a range of facilities. It manages tenants on their industrial land, runs a share-milking operation on its farmland, and operates a marina precinct. They used a custom-built software that only one person in New Zealand properly knew how to use.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Marsden Maritime implemented MYOB Advanced contribute to its growth rather than holding it back. Report writing was limited in their old system and required manual work in Excel to produce anything customised or detailed. MYOB Advanced was the robust financial system that could improve reporting writing for Marsden Maritime.
What changes followed the decision?
The cloud-based functionality of MYOB Advanced allowed Marsden to save on the large cost of server maintenance while also future-proofing the company. Real-time tracking of Marsden’s project costs has made processing large developments faster and easier. Invoices go straight into the system to have timely information to make better costing decisions.
How are they now?
Marsden has enjoyed the flexibility that MYOB Advanced brings their business. They save approximately two working days a month in preparing reports and have found a lot more oversight due to better access to information. The integrated systems of MYOB Advanced have simplified the management of all aspects of the business, from inventory to payroll and managing tenants’ rent payments. They do not have to pull in information from many different sources; it is all there in MYOB Advanced.
