ResidentiaImplementing MYOB Advanced is a lightbulb moment for electric appliance company Residentia
Residentia’s unparalleled market growth meant its old accounting system struggled to keep up. The MYOB Advanced platform set them up for continued success in the future.
Who is Residentia?
Residentia supplies electrical appliances to prominent Australian retailers. They have carved out a strong position in the market with clients such as Bing Lee, Betta Electrical, and the Buyrite Group. Experiencing rapid growth, Resedentia needed a robust system to support its customers and staff.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced?
It was Residentia’s rapid growth that overtook the capabilities of their old system. The pairing of Xero and Unleashed led to discrepancies. Both systems were delivering different figures for stock value. The finance and inventory teams wasted time working on spreadsheets outside their system. Also, emailing these spreadsheets to their third-party managed warehouse for distribution risked errors that would take weeks to detect.
What changes followed the decision?
Residentia chose the cloud-based MYOB Advanced over many competitors in the market. It was already optimised for Australian payroll and had the capacity to grow with the company in the future. MYOB Advanced integrated with various add-on products to further boost Residentia’s efficiency. They use NETSTOCK for inventory optimisation and B2B Gateway to communicate with their warehouse.
How are they now?
Connecting Residentia to their customers via EDI has automated statement generation and invoicing. NETSTOCK forecasts their stock requirements and helps with better stock management. The Sales Reps save time by filing expense claims via the cloud. Future growth for Residentia will keep them ahead of the competition. They are expanding into New Zealand and the UK and establishing a sourcing office in Asia. They are well positioned to make these expansions thanks to MYOB Advanced’s ability to handle many businesses and branches.
