RISEMYOB Advanced was a system that better fit RISE’s needs, by streamlining their operations and saving costs
With the need for an integrated ERP system, MYOB Advanced reflected the renewed focus of RISE to empower their team and customers to act on real-time information.
Who is RISE?
RISE is Sydney’s leading industrial paint distributor. They provide a comprehensive range of innovative product solutions for its customers across Australia. RISE gained new operators in 2019, which set new goals of connecting the business, empowering workers, and delivering improved client experiences.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Advanced Business?
When RISE was acquired by new operators in 2019, an evaluation was made of the existing management systems. They realised that the current ERP system in place was too big and complex for the needs of the business and did not provide their employees with the information and useable data necessary to make informed business decisions. They recognised that the cost of maintaining this system did not match up to the value it provided to the organisation.
What changes followed the decision?
After implementing MYOB Advanced Business, RISE was able to save almost two-thirds of what they previously paid to maintain their old system. The savings were not only monetary; with the addition of an integrated POS system that had been missing from their previous software, problems with duplicated data entry and operational logistics were reduced. Customer relationships also benefited from the implementation as the cloud-based system allowed both sales teams and other employees to gain real-time access to order and delivery information on the go. The easy access to data and seamless connection of the system enabled RISE to make better-informed business decisions.
How are they now?
By Switching to MYOB Advanced, RISE can seamlessly adapt its service for each customer’s unique needs and integrate the complex pricing data that comes with its provided service. The integrated system allows employees to do more with the ERP system, with increased efficiency and effectiveness. After the successful implementation, RISE is now focused on the continual improvement and adaption of its system to identify issues specific to the business and implement customisations that allow it to connect the business even more.
How do I achieve a successful implementation?
A successful implementation depends on managing three 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.
