RazorMYOB Advanced gave Razor the visibility necessary for a growing international manufacturer.
With the need for an integrated ERP system that reflected the complexity of a growing business, MYOB Advanced delivered the valuable real-time insights Razor International required to overcome logistical challenges.
Who is Razor International?
Razor International is a manufacturer that provides state-of-the-art electronic and automated control systems for semitrailers and transport vehicles. Their innovative intelligence systems are used by 50,000 trucks Australia-wide to keep transport drivers safe on the job.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
As their business continued to grow and expand overseas, the complexity of stock and level of inventory challenges also grew. The old system presented logistical issues and a lack of visibility in maintaining factories domestically and internationally. The inability to access real-time data and stay up to date with the day-to-day business also presented a large challenge. These blind spots resulted in Razor being unable to provide customers with the quality service they knew they were capable of.
What changes followed the decision?
The implementation of MYOB Advanced Business allowed Razor to streamline its cross-border logistics. The switch enabled the company’s manufacturing, inventory management, and accounting data previously separated across six different warehouses to be transferred into a singular centralised system. The benefits were immediately obvious, with employees able to provide customers and business personnel with real-time insights into stock levels, dispatch information, and fulfilment timeframes at every business level.
How are they now?
Switching to MYOB Advanced enabled Razor International to gain visibility and insight across the organisation. Customised dashboards can flag and correct potential issues or concerns before they become a problem. Real-time insights and improved quality of service have empowered Razor employees with the tools to build strong customer relationships. The cloud-based system has recently also allowed the business to go paperless and focus on the continued successful international and domestic expansion.
