Who is Taskmaster Hardware?
Taskmaster Hardware is a longstanding Australian owned national distributor of gardening, home, and trade hardware. It was established in 1985 with a mission to provide competitive products and services that enable retail partners to thrive and prosper in an ever-changing marketplace.
What catalysed the switch to MYOB Exo?
In 2011, the Taskmaster business was acquired by new management. A priority was to review and improve their systems processes. The management team believed there was a business management platform that would be better aligned with Taskmaster’s requirements. It needed to be scalable, user-friendly and cost-effective. In the search for new system, Taskmaster discovered MYOB Exo and reached out to Kilimanjaro Consulting for the implementation.
