Museum of Transport and Technology – MOTATThe MYOB Advanced implementation gave MOTAT increased control and oversight of their entire operation.
The Museum of Transport and Technology found they had increased audit and governance requirements which their old system could not provide. After implementing MYOB Advanced, with MYOB Platinum Partner Enprise Solutions (now Kilimanjaro Consulting), they found great improvements in their accounts and financial reporting.
Who are MOTAT?
The Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) is a significant site for the technological history of Auckland. Since opening its doors in 1964, the museum has grown to hold over 300,000 items that highlight Kiwi innovation and ingenuity, supported by their 300-person team. Over everything else, they focus on technology and how it can drive innovation.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
Following the MOTAT Act of 2000, the museum became a regulated statutory body – bringing in new and stringent compliance requirements. It became apparent that their previous system could not meet these needs. MYOB Advanced was the right fit because of its robust procurement system, improved reporting functionality, and cloud-based accessibility.
What changes followed the decision?
Their procurement process improved immediately after implementation. With so many team members raising Purchase Orders (PO’s) across the organisation, MYOB Advanced gives the oversight of all of MOTAT’s spending, even generating approval requests automatically when POs exceed a certain amount. The cloud-based accessibility meant that PO’s could even be raised when out of the office, making MOTAT more flexible overall. Enprise Solutions, MOTAT’s MYOB Partner of choice for the implementation, worked hard to ensure their system was set up to give them an immediate benefit.
How are they now?
MOTAT has seen great improvements in their efficiency, especially in the accounts team. With a Dataline integration, MOTAT’s invoice processing has gone completely paperless. This has allowed the account payable clerk to move from pure data entry to using their skills to reviewing transactions and fixing issues and payables queries. MYOB Advanced’s enhanced reporting capabilities means that transactions can be reviewed from the highest level down to the finest detail very quickly, and this has greatly sped up the end-of-month processing.
