Otaika Valley Free Range EggsAutomation, powered by MYOB Advanced, leads to even greater growth for Otaika Valley
Otaika Valley Free Range Eggs produced free-range eggs well before the market demand increased. They were well positioned to take advantage of the boom when it did. However, their existing software could not handle the volume of transactions. MYOB Advanced has provided a robust platform to facilitate their growth and automate their previously manual processes.
Who are Otaika Valley Free Range Eggs?
Otaika Valley supplies its eggs to businesses across the north island of New Zealand, including major supermarket clients and Mcdonald’s. Demand for free-range eggs has spiked in recent years, and Otaika Valley’s pedigree and experience in the field let them capitalise on that opportunity for growth.
What catalysed the switch?
The manual systems of Otaika Valley struggled to keep pace with the demand increases. They required further automation of data entry, plus the sending and receiving of invoices to minimise manual work in their system.
What changes followed the decision?
MYOB Advanced suited their needs, including an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system to work with their biggest clients. This greatly automated the receiving of orders and sending of invoices. The user interface of MYOB Advanced was also simpler and more user-friendly compared to some other competitive products they considered.
How are they now?
The speed of their growth is now facilitated by MYOB Advanced, rather than being limited by their old system. As a result, Otaika Valley has doubled in size since its implementation. They have greater access to their data in real-time, and the automation has saved countless working hours. Thanks to the flexibility of MYOB Advanced, they can use a customised run-sheet to immediately see if they have the right amount of stock in the warehouse to fill an order and have automated the fill-in process if they do not. They are not restricted by MYOB Advanced and are looking to further their growth into the future.
How do I achieve successful implementation?
A successful implementation depends on managing 3 critical risks:
- Software Risk
- Implementer risk
- Self-Inflicted Risk
You can reduce your risk by selecting the right implementation partner. Although there are many different partners to choose from, you need the one that will work with you every step of the way.
